Our 8th Annual Ukulele Festival is just around the corner!

"Signing on LIVE from FFUF Radio in Boyertown, Pennsylvania, its DJ Kook The Uke! Here to tell you where all the COOL CATS will be headed in October. Thats right, Funky Frets Uke Fest. We are cookin' with gas here folks and its going to be a radioactive weekend of ukulele fun! So drop the rag top and get yourselves over to Boyertown!!!"

This Uke fest is a perfect opportunity to play and mingle with like-minded Uke enthusiasts. We have a wide selection of workshops that accommodate every level of playing, from first time picking up a Uke, to advanced players and everyone in between. NO UKER LEFT BEHIND!

The weekend consists of concerts, an open mic, multiple jamming opportunities, vendors, the new this year a uke jam like no other at the beautiful Carousel of Pottstown, and many other fun activities. Things for non-ukulele players too such as a hula workshop and lei-making class. Our performers/workshop teachers are Abe Lagrimas, Jr. Amy Kucharik, Bill Wynne, Pete McCarty, Curt Sheller, The Aloha Boys (Glen, Isaac & Irv), Ray Cygrymus, Debi Velasco, William Ernestburg, Michael August and Kirk Jones.

About the organizer

Organized by
Funky Frets

Curt & Bernadette Sheller and their daughter Kelly Thompson opened Funky Frets on June 30th, 2012. Our showroom includes guitars, ukuleles, banjos, and much more! We carry over 100 ukuleles, electric and acoustic guitars, accessories, drumsticks, violin/viola strings and amps…just to name a few categories. 

Our store and events have uke enthusiasts traveling from all over the East Coast and beyond. We love meeting and chatting with each person that visits our shop. We really appreciate the support and look forward to growing our store, events and Uke Festival. 

Funky Frets of Boyertown is a first class music store and professional one-on-one private lesson studio with a monthly selection of workshops and group instruction options. We also offer lessons via Skype and FaceTime for those of you out of town, but are still looking for the benefits of lesson’s with Curt Sheller.
