Fourth Anniversary Celebration – 10/11/2016

What an amazing night at Charlie’s Pub and Eatery. There were 50 ukuleles and numerous audience members singing along with us, another standing room only crowd. We sang and played, had an open mic session and played some more. We even had the local TV station, WJET, there to film us.

Thank you Judy Dalaba for the pictures.

October 11 Ukulele Night & 4th Anniversary Celebration


NWPA Ukuleles is celebrating our 4th anniversary on Tuesday, October 11 from 6:30 – 9:00 at Charlie’s Pub and Eatery in Edinboro.

Our first get together was on October 9, 2012. About 15 people showed up and it all began, most of those original 15 are still regular attenders as well as many, many more since then.

Imagine, four years of ukulele fun at no cost to the players, it doesn’t get any better than that.

As usual we will start with some easy two and three chord songs and move on to the following:

The Cat Came Back
Enjoy Yourself, It’s Later Than You Think
King of the Road
Little Brown Jug
People Get Ready
Salty Dog Blues
Twist & Shout
Wagon Wheel
Stand By Me
“A” You’re Adorable
Bring It on Home to Me

We’ll take a litlle break to have refreshments (Ukulele shaped cookies, cupcakes, Marshmallow Hula Bunnies) are acceptable treats if you want to bring them, or not. Up to you.

Have your number ready for OPEN MIC and then we’ll all play some more.

Hope to see you there to help us celebrate, bring a friend, come early and have dinner.

Keep on strumming,

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


April 12 Get Together


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!
