Would you like an eclectic cast of characters to play uke at your next engagement or soiree? Do you need some light-hearted music in the background of your next event? Would you like to have a ukulele workshop? Do you really just want to spend time with some cool cats?
You're in luck! As schedules permit, we can play for you and your friends. We can even bring ukes with us to share the fun with YOU! Our workshops can accomodate 5-20 people.
Send an email to AlleghenyUkes@gmail.com and we'll get back to you ASAP. We love to share the uke with people of all ages!
The Allegheny Ukulele Kollective was fantastic from the start. Less than 24-hours of my first inquiring email, all of my questions were answered and we were set up with an instructor.
Our instructor Louise was great! Her workshop exceeded all of my expectations. Not only did we learn enough chords to play some familiar songs, but Louise taught us about the history of the ukulele and introduced us to some of the more notable ukulele players. By the end of the session, we were making music, which was really neat for all of us.
The teens and I all loved the workshop. Several of the group really took to the instrument and are looking into getting ukulele’s of their own. Others have told me that they have even done more research into ukulele players after the workshop and have been listening to ukulele music online.
I haven’t met all of the members of the Allegheny Ukulele Kollective, but I can tell they are all wonderful people. Our group has 18 teenagers, and because of the members loaning their personal ukes, we had more than enough for everybody. Thank you all for such a wonderful experience!
