Get yr Ukes tuned up and join us tonite for some strum along fun.

7:30pm at the Coventry Library in Cleveland Heights.

Be there on time so we can play more than just 2 or 3 songs.

"I'm terrible, I am just learning to play. Should I still come to the Jumping Flea?"


"I'm amazing on the ukulele, I am the Yo-Yo Ma, Jimmy Hendrix, Wanda Jackson of the Ukulele world. Should I still come to the Jumping Flea?"


"I hate ukuleles and ukulele music but I would love to show off my mad skills on the accordion. Should I come to the Jumping Flea."

Ummm. No.
