  • the strumming circle

    Mon, October 22, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

    Aloha friends! Beginning October 8th, the mighty UKE will be taking over Greater Goods! We'll be calling it the "Strumming Circle", because you can bring any instrument of your choice to jam along! Sharpen up your musicianship by joining in the fun. Come sing loud, play loud, and have a blast! The format is going to be somewhat different than what you might have experienced before. No books or binders are required! In the strumming circle, we will learn the basic structure of the songs beforehand and have lyrics/chords available on the screen for everyone to follow. All participants will have the opportunity to step forward and lead a song in an open-mic style jam session near the end of the evening. All you need to bring is your instrument and yourself! (If you want a chance to lead a song, email me the name and chords of the song a few days prior so that I can make it available on the screen.) Strumming circle will be (most) Monday nights from 7-8pm, with a suggested $10 per person hospitality donation for the venue. For sure, count on 10/8, 10/15, & 10/22 145 W El Roblar Dr, Ojai, CA 93023 Can't wait to jam with you! Rachael Lynde 805-200-7229

Greater Goods Relief Fund

the greater goods relief fund is dedicated to those in the ojai area who have significant losses & little support.  we are currently focused on ojai area residents affected by the thomas fire & are prepared to respond to potential winter floods or slides. our template is fairly simple: 100% of donations go to those in serious need of support. 50% is shared as cash aid at the end of each month & 50% is put aside for long term aid.

We continue fundraising and accepting applications to sustain support for victims of the Thomas Fire.
