What we're about

The group for Ukulele enthusiasts who live in and around Chatswood.

As at December 2019 we have been going for five years, lots of great meetings, and we have enjoyed performances for community groups in our local area.

2019 was our best year, with a good core group of members, and continued growth.

The group is led by Steve Lockwood, a musician with over 35 years of experience performing in bands, and running community music groups.

Steve's burning desire is to introduce as many people as possible to the joys of playing music with friends and community. So if you have been plunking away at home, come and experience the thrill of playing in a large group of friendly people.

If you have just started uke you are welcome to come along and soak up the atmosphere created by the more advanced players. We welcome players and singers of all levels.

We meet monthly on the 4th Wednesday, in Chatswood, at the Dougherty Centre from 7:00pm to 9:30pm.

Steve will be away at the New Orleans Jazz Festival. So the fabulous Tim Lockwood has agreed to lead the night. Tim, as well as being a professional musician, also has a Bachelor of Music, and is sure to provide a VERY interesting night. Probably a few more modern songs on the night, given Tim is still in his 20's...:)) The Beatles musical is progressing, so we will throw in some Beatles songs, which will most likely be included in our musical.
