Luau Song List

16 Oct


Here are the 30 songs we will be singing at the Luau on Oct 26th, 2014.

There will be hard copies of all the songs, not in the Daily Ukulele Book, at the Luau.

If you want to practice the “non-Daily Ukulele Book songs”, PDF’s are attached.

We also found some YouTube links so you can listen to songs you are not familiar with.

REMEMBER – This jam is at Bridget and Garry’s house, Not Chuckles Jack.  If you need directions call us at 613-285-4700

This should be a terrific night!

Aloha,  Garry and Bridget

October 2014 Luau

24 Aug





As the October jam will be the last of the season, we thought a theme might be fun.  What is more fun than a Luau?  Bridget and I will host it at our home.  You can get the address from us at one of the next two jams or call us at 613-285-4700.  Bring the usual song books along with your favorite beverage and perhaps a munchie.   Remember to dress the part too!
