Children's Day Gig

The annual Children's Day celebration in Marble Falls, TX is dedicated to honoring and supporting children in the Texas Hill Country. It has grown to include opportunities for  learning, activities, food, sports and entertainment. 

Our member William entered the Talent Contest, booked as "A Special Teen and Ukulele Friends". He and his father Mario joined the club about 6 months ago for fun, relaxation and to help with William's progress in his therapy for Autism. It has helped him a great deal and members of our club backed up his presentation. 

We had a wonderful time showcasing the benefits of music for everyone, everywhere!

January 2018 Fourth Thursday Meeting

Another amazing meeting tonight! We started a bit early and managed to play almost the entire songbook, even with all the chit-chat that seems to always happen. A patron of the library stopped in and stayed for the meeting. I must say I can't blame her, we're quite the ensemble. Linda said she had a wonderful time and she'll be back. Then I unlocked the door...

This week's meeting was such fun! Don brought the little purple bass, which at Elizabeth's suggestion I've named Iris. With Bobby's percussion and Don on bass, we sounded better than ever!

We also discussed the healing power of music. It's a real thing. Thanks so much, y'all.
