Location Change: October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and in support of this cause, the Austin Ukulele Society is sponsoring “Ukes for the Cure,” a uke-centric benefit concert. It’ll take place Tuesday, October 23rd, from 7:00pm – 9:00pm at Threadgill’s north location, 6416 North Lamar. Voluntary donations will be accepted and will go to Breast Cancer Resource Centers of Texas.
Several fantastic ukulele-focused bands are lined up for this event and the Austin Ukulele Society is performing a set as well! This is a friendly reminder to RSVP if you’d like to participate in the AUS ensemble portion. We’re planning to play about six songs – they are “Three Little Birds,” “Runaway,” “Stand By Me,” “Love Potion #9,” “Eight Days a Week,” and “On the Road Again.” You can find the song charts here:
Quite a few of you have already RSVP’d and we’ve got you down, no worries. We are planning to get together for a brief rehearsal on Wednesday, October 17th, at 7pm, in south central Austin. and we’ll also informally practice songs for the performance during our monthly meeting on October 11th.
Those who’ve participated in our previous public appearances can attest to how much fun we have, so please consider joining the show. Just respond to this message by October 11th – we’ll add you to a separate distribution list for the participants in this event.
Even if you can’t participate in the AUS part of the performance, we’d love for everyone to attend and invite their friends to enjoy some great ukulele music and donate what they can to a very worthy cause! We’ll share a flyer in the next few days.

I would like to join AUS and receive newsletters. I would also like to participate in the “Ukes for the Cure” concert if I can learn the music in time and if it is ok with you! Tonight was my first meeting with AUS and I enjoyed it so much. I look forward to coming again! Playing the ukulele for the 1st time this year has really helped me. The past few years, I have been through some of the toughest moments of my life and found peace through the uke. Thank you for what you do!
I’d like to attend and I know the songs (was at the meeting on Thurs). Is it too late? –Thayer
