Welcome to the Delta Strummers
Welcome to the Delta Strummers, an amateur group of ukulele players based in and around Discovery Bay and the Brentwood, California area. We are the East County’s one and only ukulele band. We frequently play for senior residences, assisted-living homes, elementary schools, and clubs in the area, in addition to our public concerts.
Under the leadership of Music Director, Ernie Macintyre, the group has grown to almost 60 members in the first half of 2015, adding depth and breadth to our music and singing. We welcome newcomers to the group, so consider playing the ukulele and joining the Delta Strummers.

Ukulele Uprising Concert
An enthusiastic audience joined us as we shared our joy of music and demonstrated the versatility of the ukulele at the Delta Strummers’ Ukulele Uprising concert on Saturday, May 2, 2015 at El Campanil Theatre in Antioch. Our program included numbers from various genres, including ragtime, folk, blues, Hawaiian, rock and roll, and old time foot stompers .
Our Spring/Summer season is winding down, with our last rehearsal on June 22, 2015. Rehearsals for our Fall/Winter season will begin on Tuesday, September 1.
Our weekly group practices are held on Tuesday evenings at Summerset IV in Brentwood.
We offer beginning ukulele lessons, led by our Music Director, assisted by a few of our experienced players. Classes are well attended, and participants are able to transition to our main playing group as they achieve some basic skills. The next class begins late August.
