The KookeeUkies, The Ukulele Club of Southern Connecticut, is a group of ukulele players of all ages . We meet to play the ukulele and sing together, discuss ukulele related topics, share what we know about playing the ukulele, and just have fun.
Our songs range from Tin Pan Alley to present day. Many of our songs have come from Dr. Uke's website: www.doctoruke.com - thank you Jim Rosokoff, Youtube.com - musicteacher2009 - thanks Mike Lynch, also from chordie.com, and other ukulele websites. There's a wealth of information online for ukulele enthusiasts to enjoy.
Lisa Brelsford, George Lewis, and Linda Meisenheimer are organizers of the KookeeUies meetup. The group plays songs by Elvis, Johnny Cash, the Beatles, Arlo Guthrie, Peter, Paul, and Mary, Beach Boys, Iz, Colbie Callait, Jason Mraz, Train, Jimmy Buffet, and a few traditional Hawaiian tunes.
Our KookeeUkies Jam Songbook can be found by clicking on the "More" tab above and then on "Files." Members can bring additional songs to our meetups (bring 15-20 copies) for the group to play. We will also be playing songs from The Daily Ukulele, a song book by Jim & Liz Beloff which can be purchased on Amazon.com for about $22.00.
The KookeeUkies tries to make its' meetings fun and/or educational. We request that members who wish to attend a scheduled meetup RSVP on this site. Check our calendar for our next meetup date and location. So, grab your uke, your songbook, a music stand, and we'll see at the next meetup. Email Lisa for more information about the KookeeUkies.
