Aloha and Mahalo!
I’m a simple player who loves to sing songs that people love to hear, and I can’t think of a more perfect instrument to accompany me than the uke. Today the ukulele is enjoying an unbelievable renaissance at every age level and skill. Whether you’re playing one, or just listening to one, the ukulele makes you feel good. The world is a much better place with lots of ukes in it. You just can’t help smiling when you hear one.
The next meeting of "The Ukuleles of Southern Connecticut" will take place on Tuesday, 21st July at Smokey Joe's BBQ restaurant on the Darien/Stamford line.
The program will be:
7:00pm - 7:30pm Meet and greet - Show us your Ukes!
7:30pm - 8:15pm Playing from the Jim and Liz Beloff "Daily Ukulele" songbooks - led by UncleZac. Select a few tunes from either volume for the group to play. If you do not have the songbooks, not to worry, copies will be available for sharing and purchase.
