Long Overdue Update

I have pretty much ignored this page since the whole Covid19 pandemic started, so here is an update.

– We started doing Zoom get togethers in April and continued weekly through June. There was only one Zoom gathering in July and then we took a break until last week (August 25).

We will continue with Zoom gatherings until such time that we can meet in person again.

The next scheduled Zoom Meeting is on Tuesday Sept. 1

April Update


We cancelled Ukulele Night on April 14 but instead had a Zoom Meeting on that date .

We will be doing another Zoom gathering tomorrow, April 28. Email Drew – if you are interested. Please put Zoom in the subject line and your name and email address in the body .

December Ukulele Night 2019

Well, the holiday season is upon us so I thought that maybe you needed some ukulele Holiday songs to get you going.

On our website you will find two Christmas song books: one from the River City Ulkulele Society in Richmond VA and another from the Phoenix Ukulele Club in Wigan, UK. There is some duplication of songs as you might expect.

I also have found a great ukulele “cheat sheet” to help with chords used in different keys. This will also be available on the website.

Our DECEMBER UKULELE NIGHT WILL BE ON TUESDAY, DECEMBER 12 from 6:30 -9:00 at Charlie’s Pub and Eatery. Hope to see you there for an early Christmas celebration.

Enjoy the books,
