Performances and Group Play, Make Music NY - Ukulele Mass Appeal, June 21

Come join in the fun this Friday for performances and group play with some great NY ukulele performers as part of Make Music NY - Mass Appeal. Each year, on the Summer Solstice (June 21), MMNY organizes music around the city, and we're helping out with a three-hour ukulele event, after work 5-8pm. 

The fun takes place in Williamsburg, Brooklyn at the  William Sheridan Playground (map), which is near the Bedford L station. 

Come by to hear performers including Sweet Soubrette, Jamie Scandal, John and Ellen Monten, Mark Dutton and Jessica Delfino. There's also open-mic slots for those wishing to perform, as well as opportunities to play in group songs.

Organized by Rick Bruner and Emceed by Roger Greenawalt, host of the Complete Beatles for Ukulele.

RSVP on Facebook.

First UUkulele Strum Circle

Hi. Every other Sunday (more or less), I lead a ukulele strumming group at First Unitarian in Brooklyn. The group are mostly beginners, but more seasoned players are encouraged to come. Everyone is welcome to this group. Although the meetups are held in house of worship, we're just ukulele strummers, so no agenda. I'd love to open this to a broader group of players.

We meet up at 12:15 in the basement of the church, the "Undercroft," during the post-service coffee hour, and then we peel off to some space in the building by 12:30 or so. (If you come late, just ask around for the ukulele group.)

The address is 50 Monroe Pl, Brooklyn, NY. Here's a map.

We're meeting this Sunday, February 17. If you'd like to be on a regular mailing reminder list (as the schedule is a bit changable), email me at rickbruner at gmail.
