Here at Uke-topia we have a wonderful core group of Uke-topians who have been playing together for about a year, with other members popping in now and again to inspire us with their songs, hearts and enthusiasm for the ukulele.
Our goals and dreams are:
*To learn a number of songs by heart
*To increase our skills by practicing during the week - and together on Tuesdays
*To enjoy each other's company
*To share what we know and learn from each other
We are currently using Jumpin' Jim's Ukulele Songbook THE DAILY UKULELE, By Liz and Jim Beloff. So if you get a chance pick up a copy. Great book filled with super easy - and more challenging - songs for every occasion. Also feel free to bring copies of your favorites or ones you would like us all to learn.
Some famous Uke Players: George Harrison (never left home without two Ukes - one for himself and one in case someone else wanted to play); Elvis (of course); Doris Day; Steve Martin; Pierce Brosnan; Cybil Shepard; Lightspeed Champion. Of course there are more, but this gives you an idea of the diversity of possibilities.
We are an informal group - with the desire to have fun together! Come join us.
