September 9, 2015 – Another great ukulele night!

It just keeps getting better & better. There were 30+ in attendance at Charlie’s Pub and Eatery in Edinboro on Wed., Sept. 10. Our player’s choice format for choosing our songs was a hit, lots of requests and a few new songs.

September Get Together

Hi all,

The NWPA Ukuleles will be gathering on Wednesday, September 9 at Charlie’s Pub and Eatery in Edinboro from 6:30 to 9:00

This jam is going to be a player’s choice jam where players pick any song form our song list and by golly, we’ll play it!

There are a some new songs on the song list that I would like to go over too, all three are player choices: “Wagon Wheel”, “Waltzing Matilda” and if Don Olah is with us maybe he will teach us to play “Someone to Lava”

Looking forward to seeing all of you.

Come early, have dinner, bring a friend,
