UKElele 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 30 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) or Jumpin’ Jim’s  “The Daily Ukulele.” (available for purchase at The Strum Shop)

 Cost: Nothing requred, but we do set out a donation basket...

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...)

Being it is Christmas, we will be doing about 10+ Christmas songs, as well as about 1-12 songs out of the Santa Cruz Songbook. You can download the Christmas Songbook above under the "more" tab, then click on "Files". It is the very first file listed.
