BOGANI CAFE CIRCLE Sunday, November 18

We’ll be meeting at our regular time, 2:00 – 4:30 at Bogani Cafe.
We’re continuing our musical journey through the blue Beloff Daily Ukulele Leap Year Edition. Our mandate is to attempt every song in the book.

During these sessions, we will all be challenged musically. We’ll play each song once to familiarize ourselves with the rhythm, melody and roadmap. Then we’ll go over it a second (or third) time to reinforce what we’ve just learned. Before we go on to the next song, I’ll ask you to share any tips or insights that you may have for me. Improvement, not perfection is our goal. And fun. Music is to be enjoyed. Let’s all learn to smile!

2:00-2:30 Arrival. Place café order at till. Greet and get to know each other. Tune your ukuleles. Settle in.

2:30-3:30 Song List*

TBA

3:30-4:00 Open Mic

This is an opportunity for you to stretch yourself in front of a friendly audience. Prepare a song to perform as a solo, or lead the group in a song of your own choosing. It can be a song we’ve already done, or something new. If you are leading a song that is not in the Blue book, bring along 20 charts.

4:00-4:30 Informal Strum Along with Friends

*The ones we don’t get to this month, we’ll start with next time. Some are quite demanding.

See you at Bogani Cafe!
