Head to our new website!

Thanks for visiting our blogspot site. However, this is yesterday's news! We have a new site with updated information that is easier to navigate. Please head straight to www.lascrucesukes.com. We'll be waiting for you there!

New practice location

The Las Cruces Ukes have a new home! We now practice at Good Samaritan - Las Cruces Village, 3011 Buena Vida Circle in the Creative Arts Room (upstairs in the Social Center). Buena Vida Circle is just off Telshor. There is a convenient parking lot just past the social center.

On a few dates throughout the year, we'll be downstairs in the conference room. So, if you don't find us in the Creative Arts room, head downstairs next to the auditorium.

Thanks to Good Samaritan for being our new hosts!

Plan now for UkeFest 2017!

Join the Las Cruces Ukes!

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

Teen club meetings:
Wednesdays, 3:15 – 4 p.m.
Arrowhead Park Early College High School, Building 4

Teens and ukuleles are a great combination! In March 2016 we kicked off the Las Cruces Ukes Teen Club, hosted at Arrowhead Park Early College High School on Arrowhead Drive south of the NMSU campus and football field (its the building with lots of colored rectangles!). While the club is hosted at APECHS, we invite other teens (or near teens) who have a flexible schedule to join us. If you are home-schooled or don't have a class that precludes you from attending, come on out!

We have LOTS of loaner Kala Waterman ukuleles, thanks to our friends at Kala! And thanks to our friends at Ohana, we have ukuleles that Teen Club members can earn to take home as their very own! One ukulele has been awarded to Josh the first semester and five more ukuleles await their new home in the future.
