Thread: Hampton Roads Ukulele Group (HUG)

  1. #1

    Default Hampton Roads Ukulele Group (HUG)

    It's spring -- let's meet up and uke out!

    I'm thinking regularly once a month on a Monday evening with spontaneous jaunts during the other weeks (like to Tanner's Creek and The Venue Open Mics in Norfolk and/or various festivities in our area, especially the boardwalk at VA beach).

    For me the third Monday of the month works (and it's AFTER tax time).

    7:00 - 9 pm, so everyone has time to get dinner and get home by a reasonable hour?

    Send me a PM!

    So does the 3rd Monday work for people?

    I've called the Starbucks at Harbor View, in Suffolk, just off 664

    They're open 'til 9:30 pm Mon - Thu

    Also have left a msg for A Latte Cafe on Granby St in Norfolk

    Parking might be difficult here, though.

    As it turns out, next Thursday April 21st I'll be in Norfolk to teach.

    So who wants to uke it in the evening in Ghent? Elliott's Coffeeshop? 7 pm - 9 pm?

    And the Monday before that, April 18th, at the Starbucks in Harbor View, Suffolk, VA near the Harris Teeter off of 17 (take the James River Bridge 17 North exit off of 664).

    7:30 - 9:00 pm.

    Cafe Latte is Norfolk is adorable BUT they don't have a parking lot and they're only open during the day.

    Default See You Thursday Then

    It's all good -- Thursday in Norfolk works for me at 7 pm at Elliott's.

    I'll also be at the Starbucks the preceding Monday, to see if anyone else shows up!

    Sorry for the previous inaccuracy -- I counted incorrectly b/c my on-line calendar was formatted weirdly. My bad.

    So we had fun last night!

    rockabilly got there first, but waited as I talked w/ one of my clients who was getting herself an iced frappacino. Her grandkids wanted to mug me for "Elvis" the black sparkle Makala Dolphin Uke.

    When the White Sparkle shows up, I think I'll name him "Liberace." Or Lady Gaga.

    Anyways, we talked a bit and strummed a bit -- very informal, though I'd brought TAB copies for MoonDance, No One and Singin' In the Rain (2 chord songs FTW!).

    A nice couple stopped by and talked for half and hour. Then a guy sat and talked for about an hour -- turns out he and his 2 teenagers have ukuleles, and he graduated from college in my home town!

    rockabilly has some REALLY nice ukes. Like K brand ukes. Whoa.
