You decided to buy a ukulele, and now you want to find some other ukulele players in Perth?
As George Harrison said, "Everyone should have and play a uke..." and with over 70,000 ukueles sold in Australia in 2010, it seems like the fun of the ukulele has become contagious. It's easy to learn to play, and really quite a sociable little instrument as you get to strum and sing along.
