It was another great time playing ukulele with friends. Kid’s songs for the kids, Elvis songs for everyone & some amazing open mic performances. If this was any more fun it would be illegal. Bunches of picture thanks to Judy Dalaba.
May Ukulele Night will be on Tuesday, May 9 from 6:30 – 9:00 at Charlie’s Pub and Eatery IN Edinboro.
Our theme for this month will be songs from ELVIS!
The following songs are on our song lists at nwpaukuleles.com:
Love Me Tender
Hawaiian Wedding Song
In addition we will play the following which will soon be available on the website:

We always start with a few easy 2 or 3 chord songs before moving on to the more difficult tunes. Open mic time give players a chance to show new tunes that they have learned and we usually finish with player choice songs from the list.
Come out early and have dinner, the place fills up quickly.

Mark Pacileo asked me to let you know about a “Ukulele Church Service” that you can participate in (just like we did at Christmas). May 7 at the Crossroads Church in McLane Please email Mark if you are interested in participating, it’ll be fun and God’ll love you more for doing it. 🙂 There’ll probably be a rehearsal prior the the date.
You just can’t keep some ukulele players down! Amazingly enough fourteen players and a few others showed up to play some Irish tunes in spite of temperatures in the teens and the major snow storm that we are currently experiencing. We did quit early so that those who had a long distance to travel wouldn’t be on the road too late at night. We did get three or four inches of new snow in the two hours that we played.
NWPA UKULELE PLAYERS ARE JUST A FAITHFUL & HARDY GROUP!

Our usual night for ukuleles is the second Tuesday. However, we have decided that February’s Ukulele night should not be on Valentine’s Day.
So mark your calendar for Wednesday, February 15 from 6:30 – 9:00 because that’s when February Ukulele Night will happen!
Well, I seem to have missed December all together but we did have a Ukulele Night. Oh well, December is too hectic anyway.
January Ukulele Night was was a hoot. There were fewer players than usual due to an ugly weather forecast but those of us that made it had a lot of fun. New songs, new players, great open mic session all work together to make a successful evening as can be seen in the following pictures.
