Yay!!! There were at least the same numbers as last time with quite a few new faces. We played all the new tunes including Dancing Queen. (Amber apologises for getting the verses out of order… she made up for it with many other beautiful renditions of our playlist). Yet again My Island Home raised the hairs on my neck… what a magical song. When You’re Smiling was a much more popular closer for the night than We’ll Meet Again.
Matt Bone on bass was rock solid and once again held us all together. Big thanks to Byron Music who showed up with the newly imported Japanese Koyama Ukes and the very desirable banjolele. I appreciate the time and effort they take to present us with some truly inspiring instruments and accessories. Thanks to Luis Christa for his much improved projection and clear sound. (We are still working out some bugs with the 2 page tunes. (Luis is the man).
Big thanks to all who came tonight, particularly those who traveled from afar to be a part of the fun… Lismore Uke Club Pres Jeanti, Chad and the Murwillumbah crew and the rest of you lovely locals with a special hello to my BBCC & Uke Mullum students. (really nice to see you there).
Next month (WED 28 SEPT) we have a very special guest. Ukulele Master – A J Leonard from Melbourne will pop in to dazzle us prior to his presentation at the Mullum Bowlo on the following Sunday (OCT 2). A 1 hour workshop followed by a concert with his partner Jenny Rowlands on Cello. This will be an unmissable event for any lover of the uke… seriously, don’t miss it!!! I will post more as the time gets closer to see what we are in for. Keep your flyer from tonight for a $2 concession at the door. Contact me if you would like one… (There’s no ‘N’ in uke… So let us Uke the world!) LOT’S OF LOVE!!! STU!
