TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED. We want all our members to be safe so we are cooperating with attempts to flatten the curve. Please stay home, wash your hands, and practice that dreaded E chord until your neighbours yell at you to shut up.
Every Monday evening from 7pm to 9:30pm, the UkeZac ukulele community gathers in the main hall of the TranZac Club, 292 Brunswick Ave, downtown Toronto, at Spadina and Bloor, for workshops, open stage performances, and group jams.
If you know at least two chords, bring your soprano, concert, or tenor ukulele plus $10 (we gotta pay the rent!) and have some fun with us. Ubass players are welcome too! We tune to G/C/E/A. And naturally, you might need to also bring your kazoo, harmonica, or shakers. (And we always welcome snacks!)

Ukulele Workshops: Our ukulele workshops are geared for both beginners and and experienced players. We include easier components for people just starting out, and trickier parts for people who need a challenge. There’s something for everyone!
Ukulele Open Stage: Every skill level is welcome on our open stage. If you just started playing the ukulele two weeks ago or if you started twenty years ago, we love celebrating everyone’s progress. Be brave and take the stage!
Ukulele Group Jam: We use large font PowerPoint/PDFs projected on a large screen so that even people at the back of the room can easily see. You don’t need to know all the songs or even all the chords. Just play what you can and New York strum the rest! (NYS means touch the strings but don’t press the strings while you strum. It will sound like percussion instead of notes.)
Schedule: We are on nearly every week. Exceptions are some holidays, when the weather is deadly, or other rare circumstances.
We are ON throughout the 2019 holiday season.
Travel: There is street and lot parking nearby. It’s also an easy trip on the TTC to Spadina station!
