In West Philadelphia, born and raised, on a playground is where they spent most of their days...Ok, so that’s not really our story as such. From humble beginnings playing in bars and backrooms in the picturesque town of Alresford the AUJ formed in 2014 when some likeminded individuals picked up some ukulele’s in the mistaken belief, they were small guitars.
From there, through the great support of the Alresford community, and those beyond, the AUJ have grown in number and volume bringing an eclectic mix of covers to music lovers everywhere. AUJ are a non-profit group proud to support several local charities and to prove there is no song which cannot benefit from a little ukulele makeover.
