    108 Station Rd, Wayne, PA (map)

    40.045387 -75.386856

  • WE MOVED! 
    ~ Incredibly, we are now in a bldg. on the other side of the same parking lot. 

    ~  PLAY UKES & SING the world's GREAT SONGS with us
        in our new 'home', after hours at the Wayne Senior Center.  

    Same Day & Time:
    Every Thursday, 6:00-8:00 PM (except holidays.)

     ALL SKILL LEVELS Welcome:
       From beginner to intermediate and those with expertise.
       We are beginner-friendly. We were all beginners once.

    JUST LOVE TO SING?  Come sing along

    MUSIC: We play all Genres & Eras 
    (well, not much hip-hop or rap, so far)
    From Pop, Rock, Show Tunes, Classical, Tin Pan Alley, Country, Standards, Irish Songs, Blues, Sea Shanties, Folk, Gospel, Hawaiian, Jazz & Holiday. Traditional to current hits. Variety adds pizzazz!

    FREE:  It's free to play. No fees.

    No more attendance cap for the foreseeable future! We are now free to have more players at a time. We've grown--and our new venue welcomes all of us who love playing together in Wayne --plus the newcomers we look forward to meeting. 

    ~      ~      ~

    BRING:
    A Music Stand & "The Daily Ukulele Leap Year Edition," aka the "blue book" by Jim Beloff; a Ukulele .... & a smile. 

    (If you don't have the book or a music stand yet, we are happy to share. 
    No ukulele? Let us know in advance and we can have one there for you to play.)

    Songs: 
    You are welcome to bring copies of songs (not in the Daily Ukes books) that you enjoy & would love for us to play. (A minimum of eight copies suggested, if we share.)
    Please check out the song version first by playing it through: Does it sound true? Chords are in the right spots? -- Or suggest a song and we will try to find the song w/chords. Melodic or comedic, players have shared many wonderful songs. We've loved the mash-ups that have come our way.

    EVERY TYPE OF UKULELE welcome!
    If playing baritone, you'll need to be able to play along with us in C tuning (GCEA) with capo or a chord conversion chart, (unless you can convert chords on the fly.)

    ~        ~        ~       ~      ~

    WE LOVE TO LEARN!
    Steve, with a few other players, will often suggest a strum to accompany a song,  a single notes intro or have a chord shape alternate fingering suggestion or other playing tip for us. In the Daily Uke books, players gain experience reading music notation and a song's 'road map.' Carissa leads how-to-sing mini lessons. Share what you know!

    A TYPICAL EVENING 
    often goes like this: We'll play approx. 10 songs from the "Blue Book," song by song; then we take turns selecting favorites from blue book. Have a singing mini workshop. Play the songs folks brought in to share. Announce upcoming events. Some 'Open Mic': we love to hear what you've been working on! 

    (If playing for an audience is new to you, practice on us! We are most encouraging, and supportive. If you are a 'pro', we are your captivated audience.)

    We are grateful to The Wayne Senior Center for granting us use of their building  "after hours" --and for this wonderful opportunity to give back to them and to the community! We will be holding a few uke workshops for them, and will perform at some of their events. We look forward to this wonderful new pairing!

    (The Wayne Senior Center is a daytime activities center for seniors in the Radnor community that holds classes such as line dancing, drumming circles, safe driving, gardening, computers -- and so much more.)
