Las Cruces Ukes Kids Club
Kids Club schedule:
2nd & 4th Saturday monthly @ 10:30 a.m.
El Calvario Church, 300 Campo Street
Playing the ukulele is so much fun, we have formed the Las Cruces Ukes Kids Club! The club meets the second and fourth Saturdays from 10:30 – 11:15 a.m. each month at El Calvario United Methodist Church at 300 Campo Street in downtown Las Cruces.
If you have your own ukulele, bring it with you. We will have a few loaner ukes, but you will not be able to take them home, and you need to practice. Check with Hubbard’s Music 'n' More, 108 Wyatt Drive; they have a really good selection of ukuleles and will help you find the right size just for you. Tell them you are with the Las Cruces Ukes.
All of us are excited to see more folks, especially younger ones, learn to love the ukulele like we do.
Las Cruces Ukes Teen Club

Our special guest instructor is Jim D'Ville, who is on a mission, he says, to get ukulele players away from their dependence on sheet music and play by ear. He has traveled to many places in this quest and now he is adding Las Cruces to the list. He will teach two workshops, levels one and two, and he encourages even brand-new ukulele players to jump into his first workshop. We don't know when he'll be coming this way again, so don't miss this opportunity!
New players will also want to take Bob Hull's Ukulele Basics class. Bob is our very own Chief Musical Officer and will give a one-hour crash course on what new players need to know. We hope they will then want to attend our Thursday evening practices from 5:15 to 6:16 p.m. at Golden Mesa on Roadrunner Pkwy.
Hubbard's Music will be on hand during the day offering a wide range of ukuleles and other essentials. Get your first ukulele or add to your collection!
Then from 4:30 to 6 p.m., The Backyard food truck will provide a pre-concert dinner with items such as a green chile and cheese stuffed burger, Southwestern Philly, shrimp and avocado salad, and fried catfish. Meals come with a drink and choice of regular or sweet potato fries.
The day ends with a concert featuring Jim D'Ville after a set played by the Las Cruces Ukes. So, even if you aren't ready to learn to play the ukulele, you can come out and enjoy some fun music!
