What we're about
We are a Meetup.com group based in Belmont, CA. We meet monthly to play a set of about 20-25 songs over a two-hour session from 6-8 pm on the third Wednesday each month (check our Meetup site for exact dates). Our usual meeting place is the Belmont Public Library, 1110 Alameda de las Pulgas, Belmont, CA. We play a wide range of popular music and welcome players of any level to come to join us. There is no pressure to come every month or for you to feel nervous about playing with our members. We believe that sharing music should be collaborative, fun and instructional. We are a welcoming group and want to share our love of music with all comers. Each month, a group leader selects the songs we play. Those song selections usually are based around a common theme. For each Meetup, a link to the song chord sheets are posted on our Meetup site for you to download to a computer or tablet or just print hard copies. At the meeting our group leader will lead us to play each song and take extra time to look a special riffs, strums and chord changes. We take one break at around 7:00 PM and have some refreshments and have a little time to get to know each other. We then finish our set at around 8:00 PM.
We try to play songs from easy to advanced to give challenges to all players, no matter what level of skill they possess. We use songs from a number of different genres. It’s our goal to help everyone learn to play the ukulele and sing the popular songs from the early 1900’s to the present.
So, please bring your ukulele, tuner, and this month’s music. We also include Spotify links to the music as well as YouTube ukulele tutorials for as many of the songs as we can. PUG takes donations each month to be able support the costs of our Meetup account. You and anyone you want to bring along are welcome. We always have a good time!
Keep on strummin'
