Once again it’s time to get out your ukulele or other acoustic instrument and dust it off. Bring it along with you to Charlie’s Pub and Eatery in Edinboro and have some fun. We’ll play some songs, have an open mic session and play some more songs.

It’s always a bunch of fun with laughter and silliness & some really great open mic presentations. Hope to see you there!

I have been negligent in updating this blog page, oops! It’s been a busy couple of weeks. So, here it is:

May 11 Ukulele Night at Charlie’s Pub and Eatery

May 15 – Duran’s Down Home Days at the Waterford Fair Grounds.
Cold is the first word that come to mind. In spite of 30 degree temperatures, rain & sleet we played in the Dairy 1 Barn at the fair grounds. We were all freezing but played on , the ukulele seems to make it’s own heat and we had lots of laughs. It was a relaxed, fun gig with a small audience.  There’s video evidence of the whole fozen performance here  https://www.facebook.com/NW-PA-Ukulele-Pictures-and-Videos-1572152813115560/

April 12 Get Together

10443240_869931183070545_3287808224064466047_o

Hoping that every had a happy Easter and that you are enjoying the spring-like weather when we have it.

Our April Get Together is scheduled for Tuesday, April 12 from 6:30 – 9:30 at Charlie’s Pub and Eatery in Edinboro.

As usual we will spend the first 45 min. or so playing some of the easier songs from our list then we will break for our “open mic” session and finish up the evening with your song choices from our list.

Open mic has become one of the highlights of the evening, anyone or group of players is welcome to get up and do a song. Everyone will appreciate whatever you do. So, don’t be shy!

It’s not too late to sign up for the May 15 gig in Waterford. We currently have 10 or so players but could use more. Let me know if you want the song list for that.

Looking forward to seeing you on the 12th!

February Ukulele Night – Feb. 9

Unknown copy

Hi all, We have added 4 new songs to the new song list for February Ukulele NIght. One for “Fat Tuesday”, one player request, one is my choice and one Stephen Foster song just because. There are YouTube videos for each of these, maybe not the same key, but you can at least get the idea of the melody in your head.

Still no requets for Valentine type wongs but it’s not too late.

See you on Feb. 9 at Charlie’s Pub and Eatery,
Drew

January 2016 – Ukulele night

ukulele_snow_bobHAPPY NEW YEAR!

Yes, winter has arrived but that will not chill the spirits of the NWPA Ukuleles.

We will be getting together for the first jam of the year on Tuesday, January 12 from 6:30 – 9:00 at Charlie’s Pub & Eatery in Edinboro. All of the usual stuff: strumming and singing for about and hour, open mic (get your song ready) and then more strumming and singing. What could be more fun than that?

So, “button up your overcoat when the wind blows free” and get on out to UKULELE NIGHT.

Hope to see you there,
Drew
