After Dennis Yamamoto retired, he picked up a ukulele he had gotten in Hawaii, plays a few chords and then was hooked on it. Because the closest ukulele club was in Roseville, he began his own for the Central Valley called the Ukulele Strummers.
On Thursday, the club will mark a full year since its first class. Yamamoto’s latest ukulele adventure is to begin a Ukuleles for Kids Program in the schools. He recently took some time to explain this program as well as talk about the ukulele and his love of the instrument.
