The Kansas City Ukesters
We love playing ukuleles, singing songs with ukes, yacking about ukes, and making ukulele friends along the way. The Kansas City Ukesters meet from 6:30 to 8:30pm on the second Monday of each month. The meeting place is St Pius Church, 55th & Woodson, in Mission, Kansas. The Ukesters welcome all levels of playing skill, sexes and ages. Our meetings always begin with focus on beginner basics.

The Kansas City Ukesters came into existence at Chuck Wilson's home one snowy evening in January of 2007. Since that first meeting the group has grown to include approximately 300 members and have met consistently once a month since that first meeting.
The Ukesters have performed at numerous venues throughout the Kansas City area including the National World War l Museum, Community America Ballpark, Scott Joplin Festival and The Folly Theater to name a few. They have also performed on TV stations KCTV 5 and KSHD 13 as well as radio stations KCUR and KKFI.
The Ukesters can often be found performing in retirement communities and for various charitable events.
