NEW BEGINNER JAM
Dave Hulsey is leading a new jam session at Dunkley Music (next door to Lowes, at Eagle Road & Ustick) on Monday evenings. The plan is to have this jam on the weeks between regular BUG Monday jams. Dunkley Music has graciously offered their really nice recital hall, located on the south side of the building. (Dunkely sells ukulele and accessories too if you get there before the store closes at 6 pm).
Those who arrive before 6:00 can enter through the store, and go through the door by the ukulele display to access the concert hall. Late arrivals are OK and welcome too. The outside entry for the recital hall is well marked on the south side of the building (closer to Lowe’s).
This jam is “beginner friendly“ using simpler songs, and is also open to any Dunkley customers who may wish to attend, but is not really a “how to” workshop or a formal class. We will mostly work from the “Nifty Fifty” club song book (on the Boise Ukulele Group website) and may pick some songs from the Daily Ukulele song book by Jim Beloff and other sources.
When: Mondays, 6:15 pm to 8:15 pm
On most Mondays between regular Monday BUG jams
Where: Dunkley Music, N/E corner of Eagle Rd and Ustick
Who: All are welcome
