The Uke Joint Jumpers got together in July 12. A group made up of parents, offspring, Aussies, Scots, New Zealanders, singers, potential singers, lovers but mostly friends that have an absolute hoot together. Many of the group have never played an instrument before this time.
We belt out the Blues with vigor and excitement and as a result we experience extreme fun.
