What we're about

Beginner, Intermediate and Advance Players - ALL ARE WELCOME!

The club was founded in 1998 by Mark Levine, the group has grown leaps and bounds since we added this meetup site in 2007. Come and have fun with us!

We meet several times a month. Locations vary but it is always a restaurant with a time provided for a meal, for those who want to eat. We jam for about two hours or more depending on the venue.

Come and meet other local Ukulele players for our "themed" jam sessions! It's always a BLAST! Should you like to perform, we also have opportunities for our players to come and perform for childrens, seniors, churches, temples and other appreciative groups!

Guests and spouses are always WELCOME to all our meetups! Come one, come ALL but remember without "U" it's just "kulele" .
