Right now the ukulele seems to be providing a wonderful social outlet for people to get together making music and new friends at the same time. Learning a new instrument is also a great way to excercise your brain and is much easier to play than, say, the harp! There are people all over the greater Bay Area getting together to play and I'm hoping that this meet-up will provide a venue for those people to learn more about some of those groups and learn about other ukulele opportunities.
I started playing the ukulele on a trip to Hawaii in 2002, but didn't get the hang of it until I attended Aloha Music Camp on Moloka'i. I then joined the Napa Valley Flea Jumpers at their monthly flea fests and that has made all the difference.
Have to say, it was a great event!
