May 12, 2016: Rock ‘n’ Roll All Nite!

KISSNearly 120 members of the Austin Ukulele Society had a blast rocking out to the classic KISS hit, “Rock ‘n’ Roll All Nite” at the May meeting. Bob took the group through several drills to get everyone comfortable with the chord transitions, muted chord progressions and syncopation with the lyrics. By the time we were through practicing the new song we’d learned, not only were we sounding great, but the energy in the room was extremely high. In fact, the energy was so high that member Vince demonstrated our collective enthusiasm by (almost) smashing his ukulele! Later in the evening, we filmed “Rock ‘n’ Roll All Nite” for our growing worldwide fanbase. 🙂

You can download the lyrics and chords for “Rock ‘n’ Roll All Nite” or download a copy of the presentation (what we project up on the wall for all to follow along).

Before the rocking and rolling got too out of control, we took a break to hear some wonderful music from open mic participants. With solo, group and duet efforts by Jack, Kevin Carroll’s Ukestra, John and Anna, Laura and David, and Helen who shared their talent with our very appreciative audience.
