Raleigh Uke Jam uses small instrument to make big smiles

The Raleigh Uke Jam meets on the first and third Thursday of every month from 7 until 9 p.m. in the Estill House at the Church of the Nativity, at 8849 Ray Road in North Raleigh. Beginners and experienced ukulele players are welcome.

We have compiled songbooks (classic and popular uke songs) for the Jam, but feel free to bring along copies of songs that you would like to try out with us (bring at least 12 copies, please). Also, please be prepared to lead any songs you bring, especially if it’s one that may not be familiar.

To save trees, we maintain our music book online via Dropbox and urge players who have tablets to download the songs and bring your tablets to the jams. Email us and we’ll send a link to the Dropbox folder!

Also bring a music stand if you have one. No cost to attend, just bring your ukulele and be ready to sing and play!

(The location is in Northwest Raleigh, close to I-540 and near the corner of Ray Road and Strickland Road. The church that is visible from Ray Road is the First Korean Baptist Church. Look for the white and blue sign by the driveway. Turn down the driveway next to the Korean Baptist church, continue about 100 yards to the Church of the Nativity facility. See the map below.)

We host Open Mic Nights at the church during those months with five Thursdays on the fifth Thursday. Anyone is welcome to bring a song or two to perform before the most supportive audience in the ukulele universe, or join the audience to appreciate the magic.

We also play a date in or around downtown Raleigh the final week of each month. The dates and locations vary, but the gig is from 7 to 9 p.m. We also play when we can for senior centers or other community groups.
