Join us a the Clocktower on the Wednesday each month

Come on out to the Clocktower Brew Pub on Bank Street for our community Ukebox Pub Night. Bring your uke, grab a pint, play some tunes, and maybe learn a new strum or chord along the way. Skill level matters not at all; enthusiasm and a good sense of whimsy are helpful, however.

Click the big orange button below to get the songsheets, strum patterns, chord diagrams and YouTube videos for the next jam.

New Clocktower Renovations!

Our first Jam Night in the basement post renovations.
 

What should you expect?

  • Doors open @ 5:30 pm | Playing starts @ 7 pm

    We’ll be playing until about 9:30 pm with a break halfway.

  • Cover $8

    $8 per person. 16 years and under free. No cover for 2nd set.

Doors are open. People tend to arrive early to socialize, score the best tables, and order dinner.

Tip: Clocktower offers Happy Apps. 40% off appetizers ordered before 6pm.

The first part of the evening will be led by Joel Jacques. He’ll guide you through a setlist chosen to help hone your playing skills. Strumming rhythms will be introduced, chord fingerings broken down, riffs worked through, and song tempos slowed down to accomodate learning all of these new skills. We’ll allow ourselves the time to play some songs both very slowly (for learning) and also at regular tempo (to work on execution).

It’s a jam…with focus.

The second set combines solo open mic performances with a participatory open jam. Any and all can participate in creating the setlist by suggesting songs and helping to lead them at the microphone (with or without the assistance of the host and other house musicians). Everyone in the room will be playing and singing along in true jam fashion. Or cheering you on if you choose to do a solo performance.
