CHARLIE HUNTER SCOTT AMENDOLA
SUNDAY DECEMBER 8th 7:30pm
THE LADS ARE BACK!
I’m pretty much out of superlatives and flowery prose, singing the praises of these two and how much sound comes from just a duet. If you’re a fan, get your tickets early. If you’ve never seen them, ask around or check the net for videos and hear for yourself how talented they are and how they come off more as a quartet than duo. Join us for a memorable, one-of-a-kind live performance.
Doors Open @ 7pm
No Alcohol SERVED.
Only coffee, tea, soft drinks and pastries served.
Next jam – Monday December 9th.
Put together by The Ukulele Club of Silicon Valley (UCSV), this monthly good time has something for everyone of all ages to enjoy. In their words, “We are a fun group that welcomes all levels and encourages everyone. We have jammers without ukes that come to sing. We have mostly ukes; but, we have a couple of guitars and welcome all instruments and anyone who wants to have fun.” So come on down, whether you want to play or sing along…or just watch. It’s a truly uplifting time. See the article from the PA Weekly and MV Voice -
Some song books available; but, you can view and print out the songs for the jam at:
(Some songs are from the Uke Club Santa Cruz’s Songbooks). Above are safe sites and only 3 emails/month.
And did you know……?
Word Origin & History
1896, from Hawaiian ‘ukulele, lit. “leaping flea,” from ‘uku “louse, flea” + lele “to fly, jump, leap.” So called from the rapid motion of the fingers in playing it. It developed from a Portuguese instrument introduced to the islands c.1879. Abbreviated form uke is attested from 1915.
