The Twin Cities Ukulele Club is an adult and teen group devoted to playing and singing ukulele songs and tunes at BUZZ, UkeAmericana, Friday Morning and BUG jams, or sing-alongs, each month. We also perform for fun at Twin Cities locations, including festivals.

Need help playing the uke? Twin Cities Ukulele Club jams will start with a half hour basic workshop 30 miniutes before the scheduled jam, except for the BUZZ sessions. This is for those who are new uke players or who haven’t played uke much or recently. The whole idea is to introduce and practice chords, chord changes, 1 4 5, and other concepts to new or less experienced uke players before the jam. Then, we will start playing songs right at the scheduled jam time.
