What is it about the ukulele that has made this instrument so infectious? The ukulele has a care-free sound long associated with hula skirts, coconuts, and a slower-paced life. This charming instrument has enjoyed a few renaissances, and we’re in the middle of one right now. Pop stars such as Eddie Vedder and LP have whole albums dedicated to the “uke,” as many musicians refer to their instrument.

After an hour, you’ll fall in love with playing this happy and cool instrument and will probably want to join a class with your new friends. Later in the night we’ll also jam, so bring your uke and make some music.
