When: Wednesday, June 17
Where: Clocktower Brew Pub, 575 Bank St, lower level
Time: 7 - 10 p.m. But come early to enjoy dinner, drinks, noodling, and camaraderie with all your uke friends! Doors open at 5:30. The Clocktower Brew Pub offers us a private room at no charge, with our own fabulous servers - Emily and Bill! Emily and Bill magically remember the names and orders of almost 100 people every jam (and not always the same people!) We want to support the heck out of them and the Clocktower!
By popular request, we'll be playing songs about Canada or by Canadian singers or songwriters! A lot of talent and songs to choose from across all eras! Here's a little sampling to get you all fired up: https://youtu.be/gkakojAZS08!! Stompin' Tom, Paul Anka, Walk Off the Earth, Tragically Hip, Spirit of the West, Joni Mitchell, Gordon Lightfoot, Manitoba Hal, James Hill, Charles de Lint, Mike Cox, David Mayerovitch, The Guess Who, The Once, The Swinging Belles, Shelley Posen, Hank Snow, Steppenwolf, Blood Sweat and Tears, etc. etc. - the list is NEVERENDING! What a talented bunch we Canadians are, eh?!
You can pick songs we've done before from the SONGS page, or submit a new song. Here's some suggestions to research - see if you can put together words and chords: http://www.strongwords.ca/files/Canadiantop100.html. Send your songs to Sue at firstname.lastname@example.org If you can provide the lyrics, chords, and best yet put the chords within the [D7] text like [C] this, that's the ultimate!
DEADLINE FOR SONGS FOR THIS JAM: Sunday, June 7
