Once again we had gangs of fun at our monthly Get Together and we have the pictures to prove it! Take a look:
Just a reminder of our Bonus Ukulele Night on March 31 at Charlie’s Pub and Eatery in Edinboro from 6:30 – 9:00.
I have chosen this playlist because most of the songs are pretty easy 2 & 3 chord songs that will give everyone a chance. The more accomplished players can be working on improving their rhythm while the rest of us work on improving chord changes. And all of us work at having fun!
The last four are songs that I’d like to have the group use for performances pieces if and when we have performances.
Looking forward to seeing everyone on March 31 at Charlie’s from 6:30 – 9:00

Dense fog couldn’t keep everyone away, we still had about twenty strummers even though warmer weather brought foggy condititions to our area.
We played a bunch of Irish songs and other tunes from our song list to get everyone warmed up for St. Patrick’s Day. Lots of fun and laughter and a bunch of great pictures from Judy Dalaba and Cal Robinson.
This group of players is the best, always enthusiastic, grinning and playing away. We do have us some fun on Ukulele Night!
Our regularly scheduled Get Together for March will be at Charlie’s Pub and Eatery in Edinboro, PA from 6:30 to 9:00 PM. We’ll start as usual with some easier songs and then move on.
In preparation for St. Patrick’s Day, an early “wearin’ of the green” as it were, we will play many of the Irish songs from our Songbook Vol. 1 and we’ll throw in a few of the newer songs from the new songs list.
Looking forward to another great gathering of ukulele players to sing and strum and just have a bunch of fun. We’d like to hear what you are working on for your own enjoyment, so practice up for and open mic time.
Here is a list of songs to get us started for the evening and we’ll go with player choices after that. These are in no particular order.

Once again, a great time was had by all in attendance at our regular get together on February 10. There were a few new players, a lot of smiling faces and lots hooting and hollering. It doesn’t get any better than this.
There were some more children to help this group stay young and challenged and there was lots of mentoring going on. Paul and Mike did their rendition of “Mac the Knife” for the group, it was excellent.
