Moselele is a ukulele group for people who live in or can be bothered to travel to Moseley in Birmingham.
We meet on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of every month – you can find all the dates on our calendar. We meet at 8:00pm in the shed in the beer garden of The Prince of Wales on Alcester Road, we go on until well past 11 and it’s usually down to when the pub decide to throw us out. If you’re looking for a ukulele group where you get to play all of the ukulele classics like Rawhide or Bring Me Sunshine then we are not the group for you. We’ve got a vast collection of songs that we’ve largely worked out ourselves and we try to keep them as contemporary as possible. What’s the point of playing songs you wouldn’t listen to? So if you want to drink beer and loudly sing songs by Modest Mouse, Chic and The Flaming Lips then we are exactly the sort of group you’ve been looking for.
We’re keen to meet people who’d like to learn the ukulele and want to play along with other people. We like beginners coming along but we do not have a dedicated beginners group and we don’t teach people how to play. We’ve had many people come along over the years who haven’t been able to play a note but with perseverance they’re now core members of the group. It might seem a bit daunting but just play the chords you know when they come round and sing as loud as you can. People who can sing, we always need them.

As a group we make our own range of Ukuleles and Gigbags. We started doing this in order to give people who are just starting out a proper instrument to play. We used to get a bit overwhelmed by people arriving with very cheap ukuleles that wouldn’t stay in tune. Now there is no excuse as we can sell you one at a very reasonable price. If you’re interested in one of our Bambookuleles then please go to this page.
We will consider doing some gigs but are trying to cut down on the number in order to concentrate on running the group on Thursdays, we did a lot last year and it got a bit tiring. Get in touch with us if your gig is interesting or if you’ve got hard cash you want to give us. There’s a contact form below.
