What we're about

Welcome!
Welcome to the Hau`oli Strummers ukulele club of San Diego. Hau’oli is Hawaiian for happy and that’s what we are. We are also a great community of uke players who get together to strum, sing, learn, teach, share, and most of all, have fun. We welcome anyone and everyone to join us.

Skill Level
We welcome everyone at all skill levels from the newest uke noobs to total uke stars. If you’ve never strummed or sung a note in your life or even if you are just shy, our club is a great place to be. The strum along format makes it easy to be as anonymous as you like while you’re learning and you’ll never be thrust into the spotlight when that isn’t your desire. If being in the spotlight is something you seek, there are plenty of opportunities to do just that.

Music
We play a wide variety of music including Rock, Country, Standards, 23 Skidoo, Hawaiian and more. Over the years we have compiled a great songbook containing all the songs we play at the meetings. Songbooks are available as a free PDF and hard copies are available for sale or loan at the meetings.

When
Our main meetings are on Tuesday nights starting at 6:30 and ending about 8:30. We have all kinds of other events too. Check the event announcements on the Home page for more information on all our events. Come check out a meeting it's really fun.

Questions or Comments?
There is more information in the "Pages" section of our Meetup site. You can also contact us by joining the Meetup group, sending a message, posting on the group message board or better yet - come to a meeting, we'll chat and have some fun.

Hope to see you soon! Mahalo!

Thursday at Vacation Island Now at 4:00pm (Not an online event)

Needs a location

Please come join us at Vacation Island every Thursday at 4:00pm, (now at 4:00pm because of the start of Daylight Savings Time on Sunday March 13 at 2:00am). We'll be doing a sing-a-long much like the other Strummers events. All skill levels are welcome and encouraged. Directions: Head west into Paradise Point and take the immediate left. Head south and stay left along Ingraham Street to near the next bridge. It winds to the right just before the water. We'll be somewhere in that area. (Look for the crazy ukulele players) Bring a chair, a music stand, the books, a fleece and/or some kind of warm jacket as it can get breezy, your uke and a smile!
(This is an in-person event - not online).
Oh and we try to have a fire in one of the fire rings every week now. Bring some marshmallows!
