MARK YOUR CALENDAR for Thursday, Sept 2nd from 5:30pm-6:00pm
Food Truck Thursdays are back at Jens Jensen Park (across the street) and so is live music. I'm putting together a group called the Aloha City Strummers that is going to be the opening act on Thursday 9/2/21. ALL ARE WELCOME and encouraged to join. We are all going to play and sing a bunch of songs with our ukes and it's going to be amazing. The more the merrier so please feel free to join in and help us spread the word about this amazing instrument. We'll be working on the songs that we'll be performing each week in the group lessons.

Contact Louie Z - Instructor
Louie Zagoras is a local legend and one of the best players around. His band Rollover plays all over Chicagoland and beyond. They have been on the road supporting top rock acts like The Allman Brothers Band, Joe Satriani, Sheryl Crow, Blues Traveler, The Neville Brothers, John Hiatt, Hot Tuna, Johnny Winter, Buddy Guy, Robin Trower, Cheap Trick, Eddie Money, and many others. In addition to being a monster guitar and ukulele player he's also one of the nicest people you'll ever meet. I still think of him as "Line 6 Louie" as he was working for Line 6 Amplifiers back when I met him. We are very happy to have him on board as one of our instructors.
