Long time no see! I didn’t see many of you Pluckin’ Strummers at the “LA International Ukulele Festival” last Saturday. Thanks to all that attended though, you made it worthwhile. We had a fantastic meet up breakfast at King’s Hawaiian Bakery in Torrance before the event. Yum! We enjoyed a couple great workshops and escaped a couple disastrous ones. All in all I think it was a great event especially for its first year. Next year will be even better. Don’t miss it! Next year we’ll perform as a group and we will strive to be completely off book. It’ll be awesome! We can do it!
So, back to our regularly scheduled meetings on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month. Glad to be back at it.

While we are getting ready to begin at 10:00 please have your questions, comment or suggestions ready to go. Maybe you have an announcement of an event or a song you need help with. I’ll do my best to help.
