Ukulele Society of America (USA)
The group of 50+ ukulele players regularly meets on Thursday evenings in Carlsbad, CA (North San Diego County and South Orange County) to play ukulele, sing, and hula. Conducted by professional entertainer Pat 'Palika' Enos and often aided by the 101 year old, Duke of Uke, Bill Tapia. The nightly format includes instructions and sing-along with Pat and Bill, Guest Conductors leading the group in song, a Kokua Team to help newcomers jam along on their first night, and an Open Mike to encourage advancing members to showcase their stuff. In addition to Pat's ukulele, the lead ensemble includes a stand-up bass player and is sometimes supplemented by slack key guitar. This is a learning and sharing atmosphere where the sound level is soft enough to hear yourself play your ukulele. Our goals are to become a fun learning center for aspiring group leaders to learn from the pros and then move on to start and nurture their own groups across the country and to train our group members to lead small groups in outreach performances to the community (Children's hospital and Senior Centers). We are the fastest growing ukulele group (arguably) in the country with over 250 Yahoo! group website members in our first year. All levels of ukulele players welcome. For further information, visit our group website http://launch.groups.yahoo.com/group/Ukulele_Society_of_America/ and ask Captain Mike to join.
