Hello everyone! mmmmm spring feels likes it’s in the air!

OPEN UKULELE NIGHT JACKS BAR ERINA FREE ENTRY AUGUST 30th 2012. Everyone welcome.

The last open ukulele night was so much fun. The next open ukulele night is August 30th at
Jacks Bar Erina from 6-10pm.
Raffles and a set list competition will be in place for the evening. Jane from Macron Music Tuggerah making us a ukulele cake to celebrate all birthdays in August and for those who we missed out on. Bring along your partners, family and friends, kids welcome. Share your talent with us on the night. We’re hoping the ‘4 strings’ will make another appearance, the ‘Ukcandoit’s’, the ‘Dementia group’, ‘Adam and friends’ , ‘djembe drum’ and our sing and play along all together sessions. The ‘Bar Boys’ from Jacks will be singing ‘I wanna Be Like You’ so practise that song so they can sing along to us. Please let me know if you have a song or three you would like to perform on the night so we can slot you in. This is a fantastic opportunity to experience performing, no pressure, surrounded by friends, or just come on down and have a brilliant night. We could also use this as a rehearsal for up coming festivals.

Hope you are all recovering from all sicknesses and operations and are back on track.
