What we're about

The Philadelphia Main Line Ukulele Group is one of the largest and most active ukulele groups in the country. Established in 2011 we have grown to over 800 members strong and have provided our members with, on average 20 opportunities per month to play ukulele in a group setting.

We have weekly jam sessions at multiple locations in the tri-state area and monthly jam sessions at our flagship locations, Steel City Coffee House, Green Fork Restaurant and Main Stage Center for the Arts. We also offer other opportunities each and every week to get together and jam with fellow ukulele players. The Philadelphia Main Line Ukulele Group also holds four "Premier Events" each year. Our Premier Events give members the opportunity to play in a festival like setting with, on average over 50 players all sharing the love that only the ukulele can bring!

Our group caters to beginners so if you're new to the uke please come to one of our events and let us help you start your journey. We play a wide variety of music from old standards from the 20's and 30's, Hawaiian Music, Classic Rock, Folk, Modern Pop, Country, Punk, Reggae and anything and everything else!

Hope to see you soon!

West Chester Ukulele Jam (Theme: For & Against)

Online event

We're having another Online West Chester Uke Jam on Wed from 6-7pm!

RSVP by clicking on "Attend online" in advance so then you'll be able to see the link on the day of the jam. Once the jam starts, Meetup doesn't allow someone to RSVP and get the link immediately.

Once you've chosen to "Attend online" you'll be able to see the link to the right --------->

We'll use music from our online WC Uke Jam Songbook and music collection. In our Google Drive you'll see our songbook, folders for other songs folks have shared & instructions on how to start using our online tools. Send any additional songs in advance to me

West Chester Uke Jam Songbook and music collection: https://tinyurl.com/yxzgo9b3

We'll show the music when we're online and you can look at your computer or tablet to play along so there's no need to print it out. We're asking volunteers to lead a song & we take turns. The audio doesn't work when we all play & sing together so everyone but the leader will be muted as you sing & play along at home. Nobody has to be a perfect singer and it takes a bit of courage to try, so your job is to sing loudly at home!

**You're very much encouraged to lead a song.** Anyone leading MUST have made the "Settings to Improve Music Audio" (see document in the songbook link above) and have "Preserve Original Sound" on. Questions? Ask me (Charlot) ahead of time and I'll assist.

*******************************************************************************
Age range is adult: high school onward. We welcome all levels of ability in playing and singing. If you're just starting and have played 3 chords, you'll fit right in. If you're more advanced, you'll fit in too.

We may take a screenshot of our group in Zoom to share with others about the fun we have. We'll never record video except on the rarest of occasions to say a special 'hello' to someone and even then with warning.
