The Victoria Vox workshop (11 attending) and the house concert (15 there) were wonderful events, much enjoyed by all.  She passes along her thanks and appreciation to everyone, and is now safely on her way to Ketchum for a July 4th afternoon concert downtown, then the remainder of her western US tour.  Special thanks to Donna and Jeff for hosting the concert and providing such wonderful food.

NEW JAM


Dave Hulsey is spearheading a new jam at Dunkley Music (by Lowes, Eagle Road & Ustick) on Monday, July 16th starting at 6:15 pm.  The plan is to have this jam on the weeks between regular BUG Monday jams.  Stay tuned for future dates.  Dunkley Music has graciously offered their concert hall, located on the South side of the building.


Those who arrive before 6:00 can enter through the store, and go through the door by the ukuleles to access the concert hall.  Late arrivals are OK and welcome. Entry can be gained through the door on the South Side of the building (closer to Lowe’s).


This jam is “beginner friendly“ with some two chord songs, and is open to any Dunkley customers who may wish to attend, but is not really a “how to” workshop.  We will mostly work from the “Nifty Fifty” (on the Boise Ukulele Group website) and may pick some songs from the Daily Ukulele by Jim Beloff.

When:   Monday, July 16th. 6:15 pm to 8:30 pm
Where:  Dunkley Music, N/E corner of Eagle Rd and Ustick
Who:    All are welcome


On page 255 of the Daily Ukulele book is “Walk Right In” in G, which will be the song of the day for the first jam.  I thought the song was about beatniks (remember them?) but it was written in the 20’s as a Jug Band song. Chords are G, E7, A7, D7 & C7.  


This song made it to the top of the charts in the early 60’s with The Rooftop Singers using two 12 string guitars. It was recorded later by numerous musicians including Sammy Davis, Jr., Ella Fitzgerald, Glen Campbell, Al Hirt, Jan & Dean, Janis Joplin, Jerry Lee Lewis, Trini Lopez, the Ventures, and Dr. Hook.  On YouTube the Dr. Hook version has the words scrolling as the song is played, and might be worth a look.

In the book, it looks like the E7 is immediately followed by the A7. I certainly could be reading this wrong, but I looked up other versions that did the chord changes as follows, and it seems to me to “flow” a little better. If I am incorrect, please let me know so I can apologize to Mr. Beloff.
