- [-] Is this the group that Terri Hemmert talks about?
- [-] What is a “Meetup Group?”
- [-] Do I need to be a Meetup.com member?
Strictly speaking, no. However only Meetup.com members who have joined the Oak Park Ukulele Meetup Group (http://tinyurl.com/harstukeplay) will receive e-mail notifications of upcoming theme nights or important news, so becoming a Meetup.com member is highly encouraged. Membership in Meetup.com is free.
- [-] Do I need to call ahead?
No. Just show up and introduce yourself. The Eastgate Cafe is very small and you won't have an any problem finding the group there.
- [-] Do I need a ukulele?
Yes. If you don't own one now, you'll find a nice selection of ukuleles here:
- [-] Are beginners allowed?
Absolutely! The Oak Park Ukulele Meetup Group is open to everyone, beginners as well as experienced players.
- [-] Do I need a songbook?
No. Song-sheet packets are provided. There is a small cover charge donation that defrays the expense of printing them.
By the way, another reason why Meetup.com membership is encouraged is that Meetup.com members are able to RSVP to meetings which helps let the group organizers know how many packets to print.

22-Dec-2011 Article and Video
Wonderwall's Oak Park Ukulele Meetup Group were joined at their holiday party at the Eastgate Cafe on December 22, 2011, by a reporter and a photographer/cameraman from the Chicago Tribune. That resulted in an article which appeared in print (Section 1, page 2) and online on December 26th, and a video which also appeared online on December 26. Chris is quoted twice in the article and is identified at the beginning of the video.
