UKULELE TUESDAYS - Every Tuesday @ 7pm. 
The Office Bar & Cafe, 124 Riddiford Street, Newtown, Wellington.

Absolute Beginners and all levels welcome.  BYO Ukulele and Koha.  Spare ukes available. 

Come out of the ukulele closet and join the Ukulele Revolution.  Relax and strum along with us for a fun ukulele jam session.  All songs and chord charts provided - just bring you and uke. 

We usually warm up with some 3 chord popular folk/culture songs to encourage our beginners to join in, then we step-up gear as the night ticks on.

We're also dusting off well-loved classic hits and bringing them to life with the Mighty Uke.  Leonard Cohen classics like "Dance Me to the End of Love" Johnny Cash "Ring of Fire" Del Shannon "Runaway" Roy Orbison "Blue Bayou" and many more!

Join us.  Uke & Spread the Love :)
