hello lovers of ukulele
I’m starting this letter a little late in the month due to so many things going on around me, so please excuse me.
Our night with Matt Dahlberg was fantastic and very inspiring and a great turn out. Plenty of food, champagne and good company, such a top night.
We performed at Woy Woy markets last Sunday 8th July to a great crowd and also had the pleasure of our local independent member and environmentalist Jake Cassar join us for a song. What a great voice that man has. Beautiful day, again, great company and what a troupe, you all played so well!
Next on the agenda is a few community performances for our local hostels and nursing homes next week. Nareen gardens Bateau Bay, Woy Woy, Point Clare and Henry Kendal Village Wyoming. If you are interested in performing these nursing homes please contact Heather at Woy Woy.
We hope you can make it to our Big night out and open mic night at Jacks bar Thursday 26th July and every last Thursday of the month.
Free entry, bring along your voice, your smile and your ukulele, your friends I will have a spare if you forget.
We’ll set up the PA, Jacks will provide discount supper and the venue and we’ll do the rest!!! Family, friends, kids, all welcome to our super uke night at Jacks Bar Karalta Road Erina. Come and see what the fuss is all about and I promise you will be hooked!
I have a meeting next week re next our next ukulele festival so watch this space.
All classes back to normal and the fun and work begins again for the following dates.
Dates to keep in your diary

I am also adding a new page on our website to advertise the trades our members have. We have some very talented folk amoungst us who are hard working and dedicated ukulele players. I thought it may be a good idea to advertise their services and trades and in return they will offer our members discounts for those services and trades so check it out!!
have a great day
