December 12 Jam at the Royal

Greetings, ukulele fans!

First, I'd like to thank everyone for making our official inaugural at the Royal Tavern last month such a success. It looks like we made the right decision in moving. When be started playing, we already had a great turnout. And yet more people came, giving us our second highest attendance.

And now, our next jam is coming up soon, on Wednesday, December 12. I know December is an awkward month for most people. It's a busy month, and many people quickly get their fill of Christmas songs. But let's keep up the momentum. Bring your favorite Christmas songs, and let's have some fun with them.

On the Kingston Ukulele Society web site, I've added a page for Christmas songs. As I write this memo, there are just a half-dozen songs. But I'll probably add some more over the next few days. But there are also other sites offering good Christmas song arrangements for ukulele:

Once we get our fill of Christmas songs, we'll do other favorites. If you're new to the jam, be sure to print off a copy of our favorites.

Don't forget: Our new location is the Royal Tavern, 344 Princess Street. Parking is usually available on Princess Street. Or park in the lot at the back of the Royal, off Brock Street, just past the fire hall. The jam starts at 7:30PM. But plan to arrive around 7PM for socializing and a beverage.

Cheers! Hans
