THE GLASTONBURY UKULELE BAND
The Glastonbury Ukulele Band consists of “ukers” from Glastonbury and surrounding towns. Led by Dr. Jim Rosokoff (AKA "Dr. Uke"), a retired Glastonbury dermatologist, they perform throughout Connecticut. They play popular songs from many eras for parties, fund raisers, retirement communities and basically any place people want to sing those great songs. For several years they have accompanied a monthly community-wide singalong in Glastonbury. Audiences have enjoyed singing along to typical ukulele fare like “You Are My Sunshine” and “Five Foot Two.” Other songs are less readily associated with the ukulele, such as “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes,” “Why Do Fools Fall In Love,” and “Who Put the Bomp (in the Bomp-Ba-Bomp-Ba-Bomp).” Many genres of music are "on the table" for the band, including jazz, folk, rock, Elvis, Beatles, show tunes, and even Yiddish songs.
