World Ukulele Day

Bonus Ukulele Night
at Charlie’s Pub and Eatery in Edinboro,

Yes, a bonus Ukulele night. from 6:30 – 9:00

We will gather as usual but now we are going to add an extra half hour on to the beginning of the evening to help accomodate some of the newer ukulele players and to give our elementary school players a little more playing time before they are forced to go home to bed ‘cause it’s a school night.:-)

We’ll use this half hour to work slowly on some easier warmup songs and to give mentoring help when it is requested. If you think that this is a good idea show up at 6:30 ready to play.

We will try to keep the first 1&1/2 hours on the simpler side of our song list and we will be adding some child oriented songs to our new song list. Please don’t think of this as anything other than more ukulele fun for all of us. The experienced players are asked to mentor.

We are now projecting our song sheet for all to see. Song list, etc. will be sent soon

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

January 13 – What A Good Time

The first jam of the new year was a huge success, we had a bunch of fun!

There are ukulele players pretty much everywhere at Charlie’s Pub and Eatery when we play. If you haven’t been there you owe it to yourself to go, at least to watch. You don’t have to play, you can sing along or just enjoy what’s happening. Who knows, you may have fun too and even play a ukulele.

December 9 – Christmas Sing-along

A large group of players, some regulars and some new to the group and a trio of little girls who can really play made for a great night of strumming and singing Christmas songs. We rather filled up the large room at Charlie’s Pub and Eatery in Edinboro. A good time was had by all as can be seen in the attached pictures.

November 11 – another successful get together.

The crowd was a little smaller, around 20 players, but a lot of fun was had.

Several of the regular players were there and we got some new players.  One new player, an eight year old named Audrey was a an excellent player and didn’t want to leave early when her mom was ready to go.

We are finding that projecting the song sheets on the wall is very helpful to many of our players.  Ain’t technology great.

Our next regular get together is on Tuesday Dec. 9.  Lots of Christmas songs to sing.
