BUG Jam Live @ Red Bird! November 15, 2023

Join us for an evening of ukulele songs and revelry! It's FREE and you don’t need to be any good.

WHEN:  Wednesday November 15, 2023
TIME:  7:30 to 10:00 p.m.
WHERE:   Red Bird Live Music, 1165 Bank Street, one block south of Sunnyside Ave., Old Ottawa South. Also, check out their Facebook page: Red Bird Live | Facebook. Red Bird is a new live music listening venue in Ottawa South with a brand new ERV (Energy Recovery Ventilator) HVAC ventilation system installed in November 2021 - ERV improves indoor air quality by providing fresh outside air. The venue is at street level with front and back doors.

SONGS:   The songs chosen by you were put in the PDF songbook that is posted below at the top of the SONG LIST, but no need to print that out! We display the songsheets on a screen at the front of the room. If you're unfamiliar with the chords, you may want to print out the song-specific chord chart that we create for each jam and that will also be posted in the link at the top of the SONG LIST below.

FOOD & DRINK:  We encourage you to support Red Bird when you attend a BUG Jam by purchasing something to eat and/or drink because Geoff Cass, the owner, gives us his beautiful space, wonderful servers, and highly-skilled sound technician to us at no cost - he foots the bill! Red Bird has a delicious selection of pressed sandwiches, sausages, personal pizzas, and other treats, as well as local beers, ciders, non-alcoholic craft sodas, cocktails, wine, and coffee/tea - all locally sourced.

SEATING:  1000 square feet on the main floor with seats for up to 90 people, depending on setup, and the venue capacity is 100. There are some couches with side tables, regular chairs and tables, and high chairs and tables at the back and along the sides.

ACCESSIBILITY: 6 steps up from the Bank St. sidewalk, with handrails

WASHROOMS:  on main floor

PARKING:  street parking and small parking lot at the south end of the building.

COVID precautions: We really want to see you but please don't come if you're not feeling well. We also hope everyone has had all the covid vaccines they're eligible for - Mark and I have each had 6 vaccinations so far. Feel free to wear a mask if you want and carrying along some hand sanitizer with you is always a good idea.

IF YOU CAN'T JOIN US LIVE for whatever reason, no worries! We record the jam, so that you can play along with us anytime. Be sure to plug an external speaker into your computer to listen so that you'll hear the uBass and get the full effect. We'll upload the jam video and the songbook we use for the evening on our BUG Jam Videos page.

If you'd like to help Sue and Mark cover the monthly costs they pay to maintain this website, please consider making a small donation. Thank you for your support.
