What we're about

Created in October 2011.

http://www.ukestra.org

As the former "Studio 99 Nashua Ukulele Club", the idea of this group is to create and foster a comfortable environment for exploring the sound this excellent instrument can provide. The Uke is experiencing a huge resurgence in popularity; always a favorite, its low cost in a difficult economy is an additional incentive for music lovers. UKESTRA with Mike Loce™ is open to all ages. Various meeting locales are around the Nashua, NH region. The group can work within your budget for a variety of entertaining functions. We also donate charitable performances around the region. Contact Mike for details.

Topics of interest are basic techniques for beginners, as well as songs and more advanced playing techniques for current players. All are welcome! A goal of the club is to promote the ukulele as a common bond for everyone. Mike facilitates the club's meetings. Since we do not have regular monthly member dues, a sliding scale (starting at $7) "cash in the hat" fee per meetup is required to defer costs.

Group members work to improve their playing via practice at club meetings and by preparing for performance opportunities. Along with ukulele, laughter is a common bond within the group.

Players are encouraged to bring chord charts/sheet music copies to share with others.

For any questions, please email Director Mike Loce.

Since we don't have annual dues, your cash donation is greatly welcomed to defray facilities costs and organizer time. We will be implementing a new method of member contributions in 2019, thank you so much for being part of NH's original uke group!

UKESTRA summer concert at Nashua's Greeley Park, hosted by NCMS!

Ukestra will be playing after the fabulous Trash Talk Percussion Ensemble in a concert Nashua Community Music School presents for the the Nashua Summer Fun series. ... a great mix of music styles for the whole family! To play in the concert, you must attend at least 4 (four) of the summer practices over the summer. Stay posted on Yahoo Group email for rehearsal details and arrival times if you're performing. We are so happy to be playing again at this function. For those who remember the outdoor 2018 show featuring Nature's Fireworks, we will make sure the lightning and thunder stay at a distance this time!
