We are a sing-along, strum-along group of ukulele players with members from Somerville and all over the Greater Boston Area. We pretty much just like to have fun playing music and don't take ourselves too seriously... after all, we are playing ukuleles! Stop by to listen or have some fun with us by singing along... or if you've got a ukulele, bring it with you and jump right in!
Whiskey River is a group of Harvard Divinity School students who share a love for jamming, folk music, and cold beer.

You can often hear them playing on Somerville street corners in the early evenings.
