We love local bands whose music features the ukulele, all ukulele music nights and ukulele-friendly open mic nights – and we also enjoy opportunities beyond the monthly Austin Ukulele Society meetings to jam with other ukulele players. Below are the names of some bands who play in and around Austin regularly, as well as some upcoming shows (and jams and open mic nights) – so go check them out and get your ukulele fix! 🙂
