The Tucson Ukulele Meetup is a member run, non-profit music club whose goal is playing and singing for personal enjoyment. All ukes are welcome; soprano, concert, tenor, baritone, guitarlele, banjolele, etc… We share our ukulele knowledge and have fun playing and singing all kinds of music (folk, pop, bluegrass, country, spiritual, rock, soul).
We are not a song circle and we don't limit the songs we play to specific ukulele songbooks. We follow a process whereby members nominate songs for new songbooks and we play those songs several times over the course of 3-4 meetups. We don't just play the songs. We work on them until we are satisfied. Then, by member vote, we select which songs go into our new songbook. If the timing works out, we are able to perform these songs in front of an audience. For example, we recently played at Cyclovia Tucson 2014 in early April and will be performing again at the SAACA Park Place Guitar Festival in June.
Never played a uke before? No problem! Annual membership dues of only $15 includes learning how to do basic chords & strums at our meetup. We'll help to get you started, then it's up to you.
