Welcome to the Delta Strummers
We are an amateur group of ukulele and guitar players fostering the playing of the ukulele in an ensemble. We plan two performances a year at a local senior living community. Smaller groups of members play at assisted living communities and for local elementary schools.
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.

Videos of a number of our performances can be viewed by clicking the Videos link in the menu above.
Our weekly group practices are held on Tuesday evenings at Summerset IV in Brentwood. Members pay a nominal practice fee each session.
Our performances feature several ‘breakout groups’, or ensembles of musicians/singers performing one or more songs. Several band members are also featured in solo renditions of some songs (playing &/or singing), with the backing of the band. Another featured ensemble, ‘The Banjoukers’, is a subset of the band playing banjo ukuleles (banjoukes) on appropriate numbers.
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.
