On the 16th April, we were back for our eleventh ukulele jam at The Sip Club, armed with an updated songbook and songlist. New on the songlist this week were The Crystals’ Da Doo Ron Ron and The Tokens’ The Lion Sleeps Tonight.
We blasted through the songlist pretty quickly, including the new songs. The Lion Sleeps Tonight went down pretty well, I think Da Doo Ron Ron might need a bit more practice 🙂 This week, we recorded the first session on video, you can see highlights below.
The second session saw us play a few old favourites, such as Born To Be Wild, Creep, Dirty Old Town, Friday I’m in Love With, Folsom Prison Blues, Sloop John B, Space Oddity and the Valerie / Kung Fu Fighting medley.
We also tackled a few lesser-played songs, including Dancing in the Dark, I Fought the Law, Moon River, Rabbit, Rock Around the Clock, These Boots Are Made for Walkin’, When You’re Smiling, You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere and Word Up.
Hope to see you again next week! As ever, if you have any feedback or requests for the songbook or songlist, then please do get in touch!
