1st Wednesday of Month - Regent Square Area

Bi-Monthly Uke Sessions: 1st and 3rd Wednesday evenings of each month. Come at 6:45 pm to tune-up and talk. We play from 7 to 9 pm. During the winter season we meet at Wilkins School Community Center, 7604 Charlston Ave., Regent Square, PA 15218. During the summer we meet at Biddle's Escape, 401 Biddle Ave., Regent Square, PA 15221.

Format: Moderator leads each session, warming up with old favorite tunes. A suggested playlist with old and new tunes is posted prior to each session. After we play and make announcements, we jam "song-circle" style. The setting is friendly and informal with no commitment required - just bring your uke and join us. We encourage solo play for advanced players.

Music: Our text is "The Daily Ukulele, 365 Tunes." We also use tunes from websites, such as Dr. Uke. If you would like to introduce a new song to the group, please bring a minimum of 20 copies to pass out.

Experience: None required! All levels are welcome, from beginners to professionals. If you don't know the chords... just sing louder.

    Drew introduced two new songs: "You Belong To Me" and "Have I Told You Lately." I introduced "I'm Looking Over A Four Leaf Clover." This music is posted on the Meetup Site "Files" page (under "More.")

    There were 17 Ukkulele players + one supporter. We played and sang much more than the official play list. Everybody had lots of fun; and everybody learned something new. There were several new participants, who all said they had a great time. Special thanks to Chris for sharing some wonderful macaroons at the close of this session.
