Yay May! BUG Off Winter Jam! May 17, 2017

Where:  Clocktower Brew Pub, lower level, 575 Bank Street, Ottawa

When: 7 to 10 p.m. But come early and join us downstairs for a delicious dinner, snack, or drinks, anytime after 5:30! Coming early will also give you the chance to meet new friends, ogle their ukuleles, and pick up some ukulele tips and tricks....

Spring has sprung and we're going to have lots of fun at our May 17th BUG Jam with more anything goes! Always a huge variety of songs, new and old on these nights. The Horse With No Name got spooked by a Dead Skunk In The Middle Of The Road and the darned Wagon Wheel fell off, so You Ain't Goin' Nowhere. So let's you, Lucille, Sunny, and Me And Bobby McGee Tiptoe Through The Tulips to Echo Beach!

(just trying to keep up with the hip kids ;)

Why not suggest a song that you'd like the group to sing at the next jam! It can be one we've done before or a new one that you find in one of the songbooks posted on our website.

It's super easy! First take a look at the SONGS page and/or the SONGBOOKS page and email me at with the name of a song you'd like the group to play. You don't have to lead it, just make a song suggestion - we can find a willing volunteer to lead. But if you WOULD like to give leading a try, yourself or with friends, let me know. We'll be there to support you all the way! It's a lot of fun to have different folks up to the mic!

OR email me NEW songs! We LOVE new songs! Just send the songsheet to me, preferably in an editable form, so that we can prepare them for the group.

DEADLINE for song submissions for the next jam:  Wednesday, May 3, 2017 (but sooner is very much appreciated to allow time for me to format them for the group and Claude to convert them into OnSong)
