E komo Mai (welcome) and thanks for stopping by!
Our aim is to provide an opportunity for people from different playing backgrounds, different levels of ability, and different ukulele clubs - or no playing background at all, no great musical ability, and no club or group affiliation - to come together in a friendly, no-pressure setting to talk-story, share songs and playing tips, and meet new friends.
By bringing together people from different clubs and also people who aren't in any club, we'll learn to play new songs and to play familiar songs in different styles and in different keys. It'll be great fun - and we'll all become better, more versatile players in the process. Pat Enos, a well-known ukulele performer and teacher, will be here from time to time to provide tips and tricks, along with regulars Ric, Harry, Roddy, Joice, Glenn, Horacio and many other generous teachers and performers. If you have a song you'd like to teach us or lead us all in, we'd love to learn it. Song books are available at our meet-ups if you need them - or bring your own music - or no music. Actually, that's the most fun of all - playing and singing songs by heart or following along on new songs by watching and listening.
If you're a beginner - or if you don't even own an ukulele yet - you're more than welcome. This is a great place to learn. We usually have a spare ukulele around so that you can borrow one for the evening and also a complimentary little beginner's learning packet which you can take home with you. Ukulele players are a generous bunch and we love to welcome and teach newcomers.
Hula dancers - and those who would like to learn to do a step or two are also invited! We don't do formal hula instruction here but there is almost always someone at our meet-ups who would be happy to share some tips to get you started.
We meet every Sunday, from 5 PM to 7 PM at Molly Bloom's, 2391 South El Camino Real, San Clemente, CA, (949) 218-0120. Here's the website: http://www.mollybloom...
