Members meet in the metro-Grand Rapids and HUG GR stands for Happy Ukulele Group Grand Rapids. There are generally 20-25 ukulele players at each jam. You will find ukes of all kinds including the popular soprano ukes, baritone ukes, soprano and baritone ukulele-banjos, a bass ukulele, and concert ukes. Lots of singing including folk, old gospel, Beatle songs, and of course Hawaiian songs. One of our leaders, born and raised in Hawaii, has been playing ukulele since 1959! New players find they are gently led along. Song lyrics with chords and relevant chord diagrams are on a screen with the use of an overhead projector. There is an open mike time where people can show their stuff! It is a friendly group. People come regularly from all over, from Grand Haven, Lansing and beyond.
