Strathroy Home and Leisure Show
Saturday April 29, 2017
9:30am to 11:00am
Location is the Gemini Sportsplex– located behind the high school at 667 Adair Blvd, Strathroy, ON N7G 3H8.
CRackerS has been invited to play at the Strathroy Home and Leisure show. SOUP members are invited to to join us for this event. All uke players are offered free entry to the show with their families.
Bring your SOUP book and music stand.
We will be playing from the SOUP book and plan to do this Jam Style like we did at the LobsterFest – we will sit as a group and play at the entry which is great exposure for us all. Mary-Lou will put together a set list of some of our favourites. People will also be able to call out numbers to play as well just like at a jam.
Suggested Attire - Dress in Layers
We will be in the entry as people come into the show so be sure to dress in layers – if it is a cold day it may be drafty.
Sign-Up Sheets will be available at the Wednesday night SOUP Jams.
About the Strathroy Jam Sessions on Tuesdays
The CRackerS ukulele group started back in October 2015 and is still growing. The SOUP Steering Committee does not run or operate this group, although we do share our Songbook and some of our SOUP members and instructors. SOUP and CRackerS support one another in the joy and appreciation for both the ukulele and jam nights. We've even given them their own section on our website.
Origin of the Name
SOUP appreciates the play on words, (SOUP has a new 'side': CRackerS!) and how the team of ladies (Mary-Lou and Kathy) who run the Tuesday night jam came up with their own unique, complementary name.
CRackerS = Caradoc Region SOUP
CRackerS Jam Nights

We use the SOUP songbook and from time to time allow our members to bring a song they would like us to try. This is a beginner group and so we try to keep it simple. All are welcome.
