What a great night! So nice to have a bunch of kids in the room again. A lot of people thought this was going to be a boring school event… everyone who attended were blown away by the talented kids who performed this evening. This was easily in the top 3 best ever Mullum uke nights, many patrons stating it was the best yet.
Major thanks to Mullum Public for such a great turnout and for hosting the rehearsal on the Monday Night, Kylie Martin for pulling the choir together and choosing the songs, Lorraine Marshall for your unstoppable enthusiasm for live performance…. Margaret Brandolini from Shearwater for presenting her two excellent groups and with Dad – Phillip, for birthing three amazing young ladies, Cecelia, Bridget and Monica (Three Little Sisters)… Heather McKeown for support and allowing the her daughter the beautiful Misty Henderson to appear on ABC radio to promote the night. (Misty.. you stole the sh0w with you wonderful original song ‘Lost At Sea’) Mullum high’s school captain Max Foggon who tore the place up… (what a show man)… Thierry Fossemalle for awesomeness on the double bass and bringing his beautiful daughter Tilka from Byron Community School along to sing, Matt Ogle for introducing us to his gorgeous daughters Isis and Azura from Byron Public who were wonderful. Each and everyone of the performances were top notch. Truly a cut above!! Big ups to all the parents who dropped off kids to rehearsals and attended on the night.
More thanks to Brendan Drinkwater for very tasty drumming, Joel Salom for his impromptu shaker ball accompaniment, Luis for excellent sound, Deb and Miss Amber on the door, Molly and Clare for photos and barrel girl duties and a big, big… major thanks, love and kisses to Val for excellent screen scrolling (sorry I left you out on the night… can you ever forgive me?) Of course, as always… many, many thanks to The Courthouse Hotel and Restaurant for their support and greatness. Stu ‘n Amber are re-invigorated and gearing up for next month.
