The ukulele is truly the people’s instrument, and SF Uke Jam is the Bay Area’s leading force bringing fans of the diminutive instrument together. Whether you play or just enjoy hearing the ukulele being strummed by knowing fingers, come join the SFUJ community for an afternoon uke-splosion in the summer sun with a program showcasing the region’s foremost ukulele talent, a strum-and-sing-along (bring your uke!), and special hula performances.  Hosted by SF Uke Jam leaders and popular YouTubers Ukulenny and Cynthia Lin, this ukulicious celebration creates an island of aloha in the bustling city.
