Leadership Meeting Notes for November 13, 2016
- Song of the Month:
Do we like it: Yes
Do we keep it: Yes
Original concept was for club to get better at a song. It needs to be: playable, enjoyable, and have lasting appeal. No originals please.
New: First of the month Jam Leader will present 3 songs from their Jam Set. The group will vote on song of the month from those 3.
Do we like to do in-house ones? Yes. If you have an interest in a particular workshop subject you would like offered, or if you want to teach a workshop, send info to Patricia. She will match up with in-house instructor. Instructor will be paid for materials such as printing, and participants will pay $5.00 per person for workshop. Workshops will be scheduled 2:30-3:45 if cleared with Jose first.
Do we want to bring in outside ones? Depends on price and interest.
Jim D’Ville is planning on coming in May. Interest? Depends on cost and subject. Connie will get that information from him. Possibly schedule workshop at her house if group isn’t interested.
Does the club want to pay for any workshops from club funds? No
Do we like them? Yes
Do we want to schedule more? Yes
Flash Mobs? Love them. Wayne will continue to look into more venues and organize. Farmers Market favorite one. We will try to memorize songs so we don’t need music stands and can wander through crowds.
Does someone want to recruit more performances? Yes. Patricia will market on webpage, by email, with flyers and will design a business card. Pat agreed to be the contact and scheduler.
Are Liability Releases an issue? Yes, we will schedule performances that do not require them.
New Idea: Marilyn will spearhead a Club Recital!
- Music Packets:
Do we like them? While some really do like them, majority ruled no, too much printing. Solution: Jam leader will pick songs for the Jam List from 1 book (Daily Ukulele or Santa Cruz 1-3), plus the Gig Book, and can have a Music Packet that contains 3-4 songs that are either new or in a different key. Those songs will be put on Music Library individually as well as together in a PDF. Jam leader will bring 10 copies.
- Open Mic Etiquette:
Three slots for Open Mic. Be prepared. Be short. One song per person. Be courteous of Jam Leaders time. Let new or less often people sign up first if you are a frequent performer.
- Jam Dates still to be filled:
Jan will make phone calls to fill dates.
