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.
Adults Only - Join us for an uproarious evening of entertainment as Jack regales us with some well-known favorites as well as some songs from the unplumbed depths of his own twisted mind! This show is intended for adults and will contain adult themes. Donations will be accepted at the door and will benefit Jack's Ukulele In The Classroom program at Juniata Park Academy. For more information about this program, or to donate now, please visit gofundme.com/ukulele-in-the-classroom.
