Bremer Ukulelenorchester Visitors With PLUC Jan 2014

Bremer Ukulelenorchester Visitors With PLUC Jan 2014

This week we had another email from a potential international uke-player who might pop into our club when travelling through London over the summer, which reminded me of the two fun visits we had earlier this year to our club.

Jean & Kugel, from the Bremer Ukulelenorchester arrived to brighten up one cold January night & were a delight to have join us. Both excellent musicians, they played mainly by ear & Jean even played bass for some of the evening (an instrument he said he’s never played before!). They joined some of us down the pub afterwards & have written up their London ukeing trip adventures on their club website under the title London – capital of uke !!!! (scroll down for the article – Google Translate is your friend if you don’t speak German). Do sign their Guestbook to say hello if you visit their site. Read the rest of this entry »

So, if you’ve just received a new ukulele for Christmas, check out last year’s tips for handy resources, beginners’ sites & local groups (or come & join our free weekly sessions if you’re in London, Kent or Surrey).

If you’re looking to buy a uke, see our guide to good starter instruments. And do check round this site for plenty of articles on playing tips and other useful free websites.

And if you just want to enjoy a bit of uke fun, try out the Ukulele Hunt’s annual Xmas Quiz.

We’re back strumming at the Lewis Club on Tue 7 Jan 2014.

Please note the following arrangements for our club nights around Christmas:

Tue 10 Dec Lewis Club. Please bring Xmas Songbooks, as we’ll be playing some numbers from those in addition to our regular PLUC repertoire. (Songs are up in the PLUC Box – in the Xmas Songsheets and New & Try-out Songs. Look out for a new version of Mele Kalikimaka containing extra tinsel in the next day or two.)

Tue 17 Dec Jolly Farmers pub. Again, we’ll play some Christmas numbers as well as our standard tunes.

Tue 24 Dec Xmas Eve & Tue 31 Dec New Year’s Eve – XMAS BREAK.

We return to the Lewis Club on Tue 7 Jan 2014.

For recent members, do make sure you’re up-to-date with printing out our songs, as we’re likely to be joined by a fresh batch of folk in the New Year. It’s easier for sharing music if most of us have copies handy. Thanks.

Christmas Strumalong 2

The final club night of the year was our annual Christmas Strumalong at the Jolly Farmers pub, attended by Andrew, Brendan, Chris, Colin, Daniel, James, Jeanette, Mary, Ron, Rufus & Simon.

We played a selection of our current songllist, raced through Sing-A-Long-A-PLUC & finished with a number of seasonal tunes from popular sources such as Doctor Uke’s Christmas Medleys 1 & 2; Ukuke’s Christmas Ukulele Songbook & some PLUC Xmas arrangements.

And we left with our traditional Hawaiian farewell – this time, the festive Mele Kalikimaka.
