Eau Claire is home to a lot of incredible people, where even the most unique talents can be showcased. The Ukulele Klub of Eau Claire provided entertainment during the UW-Extension Annual Showcase.
The Ukulele Klub of Eau Claire is a group of individuals who love playing the ukulele and music
. Around for four years, the Ukulele Klub invites anyone looking to share their love of the ukulele by listening, learning or playing!
What’s the difference between a ukulele and a guitar? The members explained that a ukulele is basically just a guitar on the 5th capo with two less strings. If you know how to play guitar, all you need to do is transpose the chords.
I had the opportunity to talk to Gordy Bischoff, leader of the Ukulele Klub and owner of Bischoff Guitars. Being a professional musician, Gordy understood a players’ needs in an instrument. He creates beautiful, handcrafted guitars and ukuleles, and was inspired to help found the Ukulele Klub of Eau Claire.
We are really a diverse community with many different talents, and we are lucky to have so many outlets for expression. Why not start a new hobby today? The Ukulele Klub meets once a month, every third Tuesday of the month, at Pizza Plus
on South Barstow. They convinced me to try it out, and I hope to see you there!
