Bring your ax to the monthly UKULELE LOVE-IN at Oakland's Actual Cafe, hosted by Mana Maddy (

We shall gather in the friendly neighbourhood cafe setting of Oakleyville's ACTUAL CAFE on the 2nd SATURDAY of every month to...

(7-8) Learn more about this fantastic little instrument with a group lesson (from Mana Maddy or guest teachers);
(8-9) Rejoice in group ukuleling with a big ol uke play and singalong and grow an Actual Ukulele Songbook.

**We'll also often have a guest performer along to play a uke-centric set. This used to happen each month, but it seems to work well to have it as a more occasional thing. Feedback (and performer suggestions) very welcome! [masked]


~~Your heart
~~Extra ukuleles if you got em, to share with new players
~~$5-10 contribution
~~Songs to add to the songbook - please keep songs to 2 single-sided pages maximum and be sure to include both lyrics & chords. Bring 5-10 copies to share around.

NOTE: You do NOT need to be a ukulele player or even a ukulele enthusiast. But you may be when you leave the Ukulele Love-In. Come one, come all, have a beverage, enjoy the happiest sounding instrument to be made from some hardwood and nylon strings, and be merry!
