Welcome to the Delta Strummers

We are an amateur group of ukulele players based in and around Brentwood and Discovery Bay, California. We are the East County’s leading ukulele band. The Band and ensembles 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 around 60 members, 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.

Group practice

Our weekly group practices, held on Tuesday evenings at Summerset IV in Brentwood, recently resumed following full Covid protocols.

Breakout Groups

Our performances feature several ‘breakout groups’, or small groups of musicians/singers performing one or more songs. These groups include ‘The Garage Band’, ‘No Strings Attached’, and ‘The Office’. Several band members are also featured in solo renditions of some songs (playing &/or singing), with the backing of the band. Another featured breakout group, ‘The Banjoukers’, is a subset of the band playing banjo ukuleles (banjoukes) on appropriate numbers.

Ukulele Lessons

We offer beginning ukulele lessons, led by our Music Director. Classes are well attended, and participants are able to transition to our main playing group as they achieve some basic skills.
