Next Meetup

JAM on the GREEN (ongoing - no RSVP) - COME OUT AND PLAY!!!
Every 1st Wednesday we'll meet in the Creamery, as always; but from May through September we'll also meet on the Morristown Green on all the other Wednesdays! There's no agenda, and the only plan is to have fun. Bring a uke (or 3), bring music (or don't), bring friends (or come make some) and possibly a music stand. If you want to lead a song bring a couple of extra copies - or we’ll just crowd tightly around yours. Or choose a jam song you know, where you can just say "it's C, F & G" and we'll all play along while you sing. Chaos and anarchy are possible. Fun is guaranteed. We'll meet on the west side, where there's a semi-circle of benches. We'll play for the homeless, the dog-walkers, the toddler-walkers, the drug dealers and the lovers. And of course, we'll play for each other! So COME OUT AND PLAY! Final note: No RSVPs for these gatherings. They aren't even "events" - we're just jamming on the Green. No need to inform anyone if you're going or not, and certainly no need to apologize or make excuses if you bail at the last minute. This is a "no guilt" activity; just come join us if you want to! Later final note: If it rains we'll be in the Creamery. But it won't. (It doesn't rain on the Green on Wednesday evenings. Trust me.) Absolutely finalest note: While you can think of this as a ukulele gathering (and it certainly is, as there will always be ukes there), this is the GREEN - and everything musical is always welcome on the Green. So if you have friends or partners who play guitar, zither or marimba, feel free to encourage them to come along. One more note (I lied, so sue me): I’ll usually arrive around 6, and others come in dribs as they're available. Usually a few stay until 9 or later.

What we're about

We're a meetup for ukulele players and those who wish to be.

A typical meetup starts with a themed playalong (with aids for beginners), and ends with a jam (with chances to bring your favorites or show what you've been working on). All ages and skill levels welcome and nurtured.

My mother told me to "go out and play!", so that's what we do; generally we'll play in a semi-public place (park or restaurant), adding a unique social aspect not present in home-centered groups.

Take this link to get to our songsheet files:

And this one to our YouTube channel, with tutorial videos for each song:

If you like the online social scene (WARNING, we only post intermittently), you can also find us:

Hope you come out and play with us soon!
