Earth Jam 5000 is a collective music-making experience. Earth Jam is tribal, like a drum circle, fusing instruments, voices, and percussion sounds. We do not have a set list of songs, like a Rock or Jazz jam session. We do play with the rhythm of rock and the improvisation of jazz. We often create “drone sounds,” like in World Music, and jam over that note or chord.
Feel free to bring electricified and amplified equipment, and crank up all you want during your solo, just please remember to turn back down so not to dominate the group sound. Please use your sense of judgement. Also, when at the brewery please try to purchase a beverage (non-alcoholic available). Its not enforced, but its a great establishment and deserves our business. Everybody is welcome. Come listen, come noodle and doodle, or come shred, just remember to turn down after loud solos so everybody can have a good time.
The Offshore Tavern: Bar and Grill, is known for American comfort food, vast beer selection & people-watching on its sizable patio.
The uke club meets on the Patio, Tuesday nights.
Welcome to the Hau`oli Strummers ukulele club of San Diego. Hau’oli is Hawaiian for happy and that’s what we are. We are also a great community of uke players who get together to strum, sing, learn, teach, share, and most of all, have fun. We welcome anyone and everyone to join us.
We welcome everyone at all skill levels from the newest uke noobs to total uke stars. If you’ve never strummed or sung a note in your life or even if you are just shy, our club is a great place to be. The strum along format makes it easy to be as anonymous as you like while you’re learning and you’ll never be thrust into the spotlight when that isn’t your desire. If being in the spotlight is something you seek, there are plenty of opportunities to do just that.
We play a wide variety of music including Rock, Country, Standards, 23 Skidoo, Hawaiian and more. Over the years we have compiled a great songbook containing all the songs we play at the meetings. Songbooks are available as a free PDF and hard copies are available for sale or loan at the meetings.
Our main meetings are on Tuesday nights starting at 6:30 and ending about 8:30. We have all kinds of other events too. Check the event announcements on the Home page for more information on all our events. Come check out a meeting it’s really fun.
Questions or Comments?
There is more information in the “Pages” section of our Meetup site. You can also contact us by joining the Meetup group, sending a message, posting on the group message board or better yet – come to a meeting, we’ll chat and have some fun.
Hope to see you soon! Mahalo!

A core group of musicians (the “Set List” Band) has been working on tunes from a regular monthly song list. Each song practice is about playing and teaching jam session. Here, you can develop the art of soloing, as well as “call and response,” and extended jam improvisation.
Organizer Paul W inspires the creative energies for the group. Mr. Sid is the Song-leader that keeps our songs on track. None of the musicians play solos or vocals louder then anyone one else. We practice each song several times to tighten our group harmony and practice improvisation skills.
NOTE: YOU MUST BE ABLE TO PLAY THE MELODY FOR ALL THE WARM-UP SONGS ON OUR LIST TO ATTEND!
This Jam Session is a good fit for musicians with at least one year of jam session experience (three years experience would make the extended solos easier for you to play). *
Format: We will practice our blues and rock songs at least two times each. We will also work on improvisation techniques… to enhance the ability of each musician to listen to the other players. (1) Nail the melody (2) Tighten up the group sound. (3) Follow the drummer (4) look for signals from other players (5) Singer or Song-leader selects the solos and the call & response (6) add riffs & musical phrases (7) Drummer raises and lowers the volume to highlight each instrument.
