Don's and my band, Turnabout, offered to play music for the annual free Thanksgiving meal and party at Fuel Coffeehouse in Llano. As part of the entertainment, the Highland Lakes Ukulele Club appeared at 2pm for a half hour show. It was great fun to be part of the Fuel family and friends and enjoy the day. We know how much we have to be thankful for. For us, it's the music, the community and good friends we've met through music.
Thank you for coming and I hope every one of our members had a loving and peaceful Thanksgiving Day!

Quite the turnout for Highland Lakes Ukulele Club! We did a couple of new songs, Ripple by the Grateful Dead and The Christmas Song in preparation for the holiday season. Link to this month's songbook HERE for Standard tuning and HERE. Thanks, y'all, it was a fun meeting!
Once again we had a nice showing for the meeting, including our percussionist who really fills out the sound. I'm feeling a little nostalgic, we have met so many wonderful people through the club. It's a great opportunity to get together with like-minded folks to sing and play!

This Fourth Thursday, the Marble Falls Library community room was closed for renovations. Virginia was so gracious letting us meet at her house and even provided us (me) with a dish of chocolates. Our group is sometimes small but mighty, changing the world four strings at a time!
Once again, Gateway Villas Assisted Living invited us to their annual Luau. We were privileged to play for the guests. They sang along with nearly every song! P.S. Scroll down for the update.

Update; The photo above was taken moments before showtime while we were looking for Patrick, who I suspect was outside being a Ukulele Star for the guests. Then I got accused of Photoshopping him out. Well, I could, so I can PS him in, now can't I?

This meeting we had many of 'the usual suspects' and a guest who made a significant addition to our little band. Bobby is a drummer and played my new Slaptop Cajon this meeting. It was awesome! He had never attended a Ukulele Club meeting and said it was a great experience.

Once a year, Marble Falls Public Library has a Summer Reading Program in the Community Room, so once again we met at Virginia's house. New members Mira and Steve came and we had a capital time. Thanks to Virginia's grandson for taking our photo!
