    All seats are currently taken but if you'd like to be put on the waiting list email Sue Rogers

    A favourite BUG outing!

    BUG has been invited back for the 6th year in a row to provide music for the IN FROM THE COLD program at Parkdale United Church. This program provides people of all ages a warm, inviting place to spend an afternoon, get a hot meal, and enjoy live music. It means so much to the folks - they're so appreciative, singing and clapping along with every song! A very fun, casual event!

    WHERE:  Parkdale United Church, 429 Parkdale Ave. Enter in the door off of Gladstone St. 

    WHEN:  Saturday, February 29, 2020

    TIME:  2:15 to 4:00 (please arrive on stage by 2:00 to set up and be ready to play at 2:15)

    Mark and I will bring the BUG event binders with us with a selection of great songs! If you use your iPad or other tablet you're welcome to use it instead, as long as you've uploaded the most recent version of the BUG Event Songbook PDF (plus any additional songs we may post above for a particular event). A YouTube playlist of all the songs is posted below so you can familiarize yourself with any songs you don't know. I may supply the audience with request lists and give them an opportunity to pick some of their favourites. The songs I'm most likely going to have us play are a bunch we haven't tried at In From The Cold before:

    Aux Champs-Elysées
    BUG Medley
    California Dreamin’
    Can’t Take My Eyes Off You
    Count On Me
    Dead Skunk
    Donald, Where’s Your Troosers?
    Get Off Of My Cloud
    I Can See Clearly Now
    I Feel Fine
    Johnny B. Goode
    The Lion Sleeps Tonight
    Lookin’ Out My Back Door
    Lukey’s Boat
    Mountain Dew/I’ll Tell Me Ma
    Stuck In The Middle With You
    This Little Light
    Those Were The Days

    NOTE:  We’re always at full capacity for the size of the stage, so please leave your cases, coats, etc. out in the cloakroom area, and if you want to practise once you’ve arrived, please do that in the cloakroom area as well.

    PARKING: Please park in the large lot beside the church, enter from Parkdale Ave. From there you will need to walk around to the Gladstone side of the church to enter. FOR THOSE WHO MAY HAVE MOBILITY ISSUES, there will be 4 spots reserved for ukers in the small parking lot that you enter from Gladstone, right by the door. Go down the stairs, turn left, and there will be a large cloakroom/ volunteer office where we hang our coats and leave instrument cases. 


    • Ukulele 
    • Tuner
    • Music stand (we generally share 1 stand for every 2 people)
    • Kazoo
    • Water bottle
    • SMILES galore!
