PLAY UKES & SING the world's GREAT SONGS with us

ALL SKILL LEVELS Welcome:
From beginner to intermediate and those with expertise.
We are beginner-friendly. We were all beginners once! -- I (Linda) started coming before I even had a uke. -- But you will have more fun if you know a few basic (and easy!) chords like C, F, G7. And, like the C-chord, Am is onethat needs just one finger on one string. Or play the "Z" chord all evening and get used to strumming in time.

We welcome players of all ages!

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.

BRING:
A Music Stand & all music from the links above

(If you don't have the music 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 that you would love for us to play. (A min. of 15 copies suggested, if we share, 15-20 if we each have a copy to play from. Copies returned to you if you wish.)
Please play the song version through before copying. Does it sound true? Chords are in the right spots? - Or suggest a song and we will try to find the song sheet for you. 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.)

DO YOU PLAY THE BASS, DRUMS, OR GUITAR -- ANY INSTRUMENT? ALL ARE WELOME

WE LOVE TO LEARN!
Share what you know!

WE WILL ALSO BE PLAYING HAWAIIAN MUSIC
We will have 40 - 60 minutes where we play Hawaiian music (Hapa-Haole and traditional)
