An intergenerational group of musicians (currently 35-85 years young) playing all styles and genres of music and encompassing all levels of ability. Some of the musicians in the collective have been playing professionally for a lifetime and some in the collective are only a few years into their musical odyssey. Those more experienced in their musical understanding supporting those in the collective more recently tuning into their craft. As a result, we all benefit emotionally and spiritually. Among the instruments in the collective are vocals, guitar, flute, bass, mandolin, mandola, accordion, drums, keyboards, harmonica and of course soprano, concert, tenor and baritone ukulele.
Ageing affects us all and learning an instrument later in life has benefits for the plasticity and neurogenesis of one’s brain.
Drop a brain bomb. Fire up the synapses. Rewire some neurons and strum into cognition. Why don’t you pick up a uke? We did. We are always open to new members.
