As quoted ” The Ukulele”

Newsletter July

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.

All Welcome

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!

Our fundraiser at Jacks Bar  raising money for MS and the ‘gongride’ …was a brilliant day and very successful we raised nearly $1000 for charity and had a good time . Thanks to The Central Coast Ukulele Club and families, Jake Cassar, Slightly Off, JenoelanDan and all who turned up to support such a worthy charity. Also a big thanks to Jacks Bar , especially Jack for looking after us all!!!
