UKE University Sing & Strum-A-Long

Come one, come all, to musically celebrate all things ukulele!

Bring your love of music, your sense of humor, and a song or two and join us for lots of fun! Playing songs from all eras and genres. Just want to sing along or listen? Great! All are welcome!

Here is what we do: Dedicate the first 20 minutes to beginners (basic chords, etc.) and then play songs from the “Ukulele Club of Santa Cruz Songbook", (which we project on to a big screen for all to see) and Roseville Acoustic Guitar Club Songbook written for Ukulele (available at The Strum Shop)

Cost: Nothing required, but we do set out a donation basket... chip in a couple of bucks if you can.

Check out our websites for lots more information here:

And remember: we are an equal opportunity musical group. We welcome and enjoy everybody without regard to experience, talent, or singing ability. (after, we even let Stu sing...)

    After a long absence I was happy to be back, sitting in the back. I am rusty, had to leave early as I didn't have the new Roseville book and could not read the chords on the big screen. Hope to start going to the Open Mic nights.

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.
