What we're about

Funky Frets (http://www.funkyfrets.com) is the `ukulele home of Curt and Bernadette Sheller and their daughter Kelly. A true Mom and Pop or as our grandson TJ might say "Mom Mom and Pop-o" music store specializing in All Things Ukulele.

Curt has written and published over 30 books for `ukulele. Curt also maintains his personal, very popular web site LearningUkulule.com (http://www.learningukulele.com) with over 600 `ukulele lessons, 100 songs, links and resources to builders, luthiers, festivals, clubs, manufactures, fellow musicians and a lot more. Curt has performed and presented `ukulele workshops at various `ukulele festivals around the USA.

This meetup group will be for `ukulele get togethers, jams, workshops and concert announcements. As well as any great `ukulele related events we can host at the store.

We're looking forward to building a vibrant `ukulele community in this neck of the woods.
