Get our uke on for the first time! Let's all meet and jam!

This is the first of many, many uke meetups and jam sessions at BridgeSet Sound. We have the space and convenient location and look forward to starting the revolution here on the legendary South Street. 

Uketeers of all ages and skill levels are encouraged. Don't have a uke? We can rent you one! Please let us know in advance so we can plan accordingly. 

We are planning to do this once a month but if the interest is there, why not more often?!

    Great time tonight. I will announce the next meetup soon so people can pick and practice the songs they want to play with everyone. Send me your links, and I'll have the chord charts ready. Should we do Tuesday, 9/10 @ 7pm? If we have enough interest, we can do it twice a month on different days. Have a great rest of the week. If any of you are coming to South Street for the Night Market, come say hi! We will be open throughout.

    I had a great time last night. I think it went really well for our first get together. I think it will be great if we can get the music/song list out ahead of time so this way we will have a base to work off of. As of right now, I don't have a preference as to which night to meet. I'll have a better idea once we get into fall. Nice to meet all of you...and nice shop Steve!

    I would be up for every two weeks! My goal is to learn to play and sing with others- more times I do it- closer I get.

    I don't have a ukulele so I'd like to rent one if possible. I don't know how to play either, but I'm excited to learn!!

    • Steven H.

      Hi Kona! We have a choice of ukes for you to rent. The rental is $10 but can be applied as store credit :) so you're basically putting a $10 deposit down on a uke you want to buy. You're going to have a blast. Learning ukulele might even be more fun than knowing how to play. See ya!

    Hi all. I just joined. I won't be able to make any Meetups until after Sept. 1. I'm looking forward to getting together after the 1st!

    Hi Steven,

    Thanks for putting this all together. I look forward to meeting you and other uke addicts. I am also interested in learning more about the work you are doing for kids through BridgeSet Sound.

    Is there anything we attendees need to do in advance of the 14 August meetup?

    Do you have an overall structure or concept in mind to keep a bunch of people from running amok (although joyfully so)?

    - Clark

    • Steven H.

      Clark! My pleasure! We are so excited to get this going. We are coming up with a loose structure for this first meet up. We will run through a few songs and hope some people can sing (I can't, I'm awful). We will feel it out and just nerdy! Eventually we will have themed nights, etc

      I have spent the past 4 years implementing music technology in schools across the country and have recently been working to utilize the uke in camps, pre and elementary schools. I can give you the full rundown at the meetup!

    I've been looking for a uke club in Center City for a while. I'm excited about this!
