Birchmere Music Hall
Northern Virginia Ukulele Society (NVUS) outing at The Birchmere
- 2:45-4:45 pm. Come join the NVUS Tailgate (yes a work day). Potluck style.
- Main Doors open: 5 pm
- Concert Hall Doors open: 6 pm
- Concert starts: ~7:30 pm
- Volunteers Needed:
- Line Volunteers: 5-6 volunteers to arrive no later than 3:30pm at the Birchmere! The 5-6 Line Volunteers escort ~9 other Society members into the concert hall. Only way to sit together as a group.
- Song leaders: Want to be up front for a song? Come lead a short simple tune during the open jams. Remember no lead sheets. Easy jam songs that can be done in 2 to 3 chords. Even Moses will lead a tune or two using 1-finger chords. Arrive NLT 5 pm.
Yep, This is the 10th time, over the 9 years in a row, that we’ve attended as a club and led jams before the main dining hall doors open. Group tickets generally go fast and are immediately available. RSVP even if you got your tickets elsewhere.
Jams are completely open, very unplugged except for the leader leading a song or songs. We really try to keep it simple known songs so you can participate with just your uke and play by ear — 2 and 3 chord songs, unless it’s something like the do wop — ice cream parlor pattern (progression — hope you can sing in C or F — progression: C — Am — F — G7, simple fingering style). Come prepared with a limerick that would go with “Drunken Sailor” and we can have even more fun! (this is a 2-chord song — Moses leads with Am – G).
Come join us and then attend the concert. Jake Shimabukuro is always a fantastic ukulele artist to listen and watch. Better when live!
So – want to get tickets independently? Will cost more since you have to pay the convenience fees: //www1.ticketmaster.com/jake-shimabukuro/event/1500566C91E017B5 (click here)
