Grab your uke and bring your friends and have a fun night. Our set-leaders for July are Peter Grace, Coady Brule and Max Borchardt. Songs range from simple chords for beginners (and to limber up!) to more challenging chords and strumming for the more experienced.
Beginners and new players come for the introductory class at 6:30 pm before the Big Jam starts. You’ll learn some jam survival tips and useful chords. Please arrive early to tune up.
