Happy Valentines Day, all! You are our cup of tea, and we want you to be the first to hear the title track for our next CD!
My daughter and I wrote this little ditty one morning over a cup of tea when I was in need of a two-chord song for teaching ukulele. This rough mix will change before the final pressing, but all the zany elements are there. John Bartlit outdid himself on xylophone, bells and whistles and percussion, not to mention bass. Daniel Ward picked up a coronet at a yard sale and blasted a boozy tatoo. At it’s heart it is a very simple song just right for beginning uke players.
Jeff Bogle has posted the song and some kind words on his website OWTK, and there is a YouTube tutorial of how to play the song, there are charts available on GoChords, too. You’ll find an easy and slightly harder version published my group Sukey Jump Songs. Go get your hatchet, learn a few chords and let your sugar know how many lumps you’ll take!
So many exciting things are brewing for the band right now, including a spring tour which will take us to Jiggle Jam in Kansas City for Memorial day. We will be playing nearly every day for three weeks. Be sure to check back for official dates and times if you are anywhere between Los Angeles and Kansas City!
And the CD! We are planning on a late spring release. But we need a little help from our friends. We will be launching a Kichstarter campaign to raise the money to pay for the packaging and duplication. It’s a great way to pre-order a copy, perhaps pick up a special premium and be part of the process, plus earn our eternal gratitude for your love and support.
Until then- Happy Valentine’s Day and chin-chin!
