Leader - Jack.  Do you have an interest in the ukulele and have wondered what this little instrument is all about?  Would you like a little encouragement and practice in forming and switching chords? These Meetups are for you!

    Thanks Jack for leading us in this jam. It was fun playing the tunes on this playlist with everyone. More fun than playing alone!

    Thank you, Jack, and everyone. I enjoyed myself and understand the ukelele and its operation better. Plus it is just great to make music.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
