I'd like to introduce The Green Parrot Ukulele Association, founded in June 2001 at The Green Parrot Bar in Key West where we typically begin with a Workshop at 8 p.m. for those just starting out on the instrument. Basic instruction and chord and song sheets will be provided. At 9 p.m., there will be featured performers, an open mic and a play-along in no particular order.We meet once a month at the bar.
Our informal credo is:
"In terms of improving one's mood and general outlook, I consider the ukulele to be the big gun", Louden Wainright III
We have a face book page:

And we post events on the Green Parrot blog also:

Wow, looks like If I drive down to Key West, I'll have to pick "uke day" at the Green Parrot. We meet in Brevard on the 2nd Saturday evening in Cocoa Beach....in case you ever get up here.

I have an ex-girlfriend with a friend that used to live in Key West and worked at a bar there. I'm 99% sure it was the Green Parrot. Open air bar?

Her name was Erin. She quit and moved back here (to Michigan) about 6 or 7 years ago, give or take.

Ring any bells?

And congrats on your new Uke club. I would think key west would be among the best places to play the uke!
