Would anyone like a Halloween concert via Zoom?

I don't mean to be big headed or narcissistic, I'm not Bjork or Joni Mitchell here...but I get very bored living in an isolated area and thought why not do a ukulele concert for fun...

I think it's a great idea, and you don't need our permission. If you have the time and some of your songs to share, then go for it. You could pick any format (Zoom, YouTube, ...) you like and then publish the link etc. If technical issues scupper your plans, you could upload a recording instead. You aim to entertain and have fun, so why not?

I just thought it comes off as a bit vain to do a solo concert but then again, it's just fun to sing!

Hmm Youtube might be better, my microphone often acts odd on Zoom and has to be muted...

I say you go for it! You are "new" here but from what I gather, the Halloween theme would fit you perfectly.

You could do a circle Zoom where each participant plays a song. My group is playing on the 31st from 1 to 2:30 on the patio of a sandwich shop with about 30 of us. I'm sure some will be wearing costumes too. We do Spooky, The Addams Family, Witch Doctor, Love Potion #9, Purple People Eater.

This is the costume I wore when we last met 2 years ago (notice the headstock label).

Ooh, clever!

There's already an open mike on Zoom the day before, might just do a Youtube one and share the link :)

These are nice songs. I did not know some of them until I participated in Craig Chee and Sara Maisel Halloween course last week where they were taught. That was a good start, though I did not have a chance to practice at all since then.

Update...it's still going on, no thanks to me being aphonic for a while earlier. My voice seems to be working now though
