New York, NYUSA
July 31, 2007
When I first joined this group I had been playing for about two weeks. Now I'm a member of the New York Ukulele Ensemble and more uke-obsessed than ever! My musical taste is all over the map, and in the best of all worlds I'll be playing everything.
It's a tight ship -- the leader knows what people are there for, and is able to keep it all on track. It was pretty clear that there were a variety of styles, personalities, etc. attending, but none of that mattered. The goal was to play music, and that is what we did. I was there with two other players there for the first time, and we are not only looking forward to returning, we're going to be bringing friends and colleagues with us.
