Play the uke in public?

Would any of you would be interested in working up a repertoire of 10-12 songs and then arranging to play as a group at a nursing home? I was thinking of some old-time standards that the residents would know and could sing along with if they wanted.
If you're interested then start thinking of some songs and lets start practicing and planning. Hopefully by summer we could give it a try.

March and April

Well Gary and I had good time today up at the NorthTown library.

We went through a bunch of Easter/Springtime music like Easter Parade, Peter Cottontail, Take Me Out to the Ballgame, Danny Boy, When Irish Eyes are Smiling, My Wild Irish Rose.

Then we started playing a bunch of miscellaneous stuff and went through the Blues tutorial that Rigk Sauer of Risa Ukulele put together (it's available out on youtube if you want to watch it, or we can view it at a future meeting.)

Speaking of future meetings!

The next meeting is on Sunday April 1st, 2-5pm at the Roseville Library, Hamline & Cty Rd B.
Hopefully we'll see a few more of you since we'll be in the BIG room again.
Any ideas for new music or should we repeat the stuff above?

Unitil the 1st, keep StrumMn,
