Who’s Hosting This Sunday’s Virtual Jam?
This week’s jam is hosted by Angel Ocasio from the Rose Festival Uke Jam. Angel Ocasio is the Artistic Director and the official mascot, the Clown Prince, of the Portland Rose Festival since 2007. In 2018, Angel became the project director for the first Rose Festival Ukulele Jam and hopes to present another Ukulele Jam at CityFair this summer as part of a smaller version of the Portland Rose Festival. Angel also performs nationally and internationally as a physical comedian. He is a writer and an instructor in the art of comedy and clowning. A lover of the ukulele and classic songs, Angel occasionally performs at local pubs singing and strumming to a variety of his favorite tunes. For more information on Angel you can check out his website at www.ocomedy.com or at Facebook.com/ocomedy.
This week Angel will pay tribute to the songs of the 1920s, still awesome in the 2020s!

Helpful Zoom Tips
- Zoom is like a video chat with multiple people. Just click the link, and then it will prompt you to download the software. You can run it on your computer, but you can use it on your phone too. It will be difficult to have everyone playing altogether because of latency, so the leader will mute everyone during the song so you’ll hear just the leader singing and playing, and then we’ll unmute between songs so that we can chat.
- Have your music book available on a different device than you’re using for the Zoom (for example, Zoom on your computer or phone, and music on your tablet).”See” you Sunday!
We can only have 100 people on at a time, first come first served.
