Weekly informal gathering of up to 55 folks who have a great time making music together. We love all kinds of instruments—guitars, mandolins, fiddles, ukuleles, harmonicas, washboards, keyboards, etc. You name it, we like it and we love all kinds of music! Each week we take turns picking tunes from a big songbook that we made, and when it’s your turn, you can lead the group or pass. No pressure. If you haven’t played in a long time or you’ve never played before and want to start, this group is for you. We don’t teach you how to play, but we have an excellent list of instructors. Come every week or just drop in when you can and be sure to bring your instrument and a music stand. Welcome home to Fun Band!
