December 2016 Club Nights

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

Tue 13 Dec & Tue 20 Dec – We’re at the Lewes Club, as usual. We’ll be playing our regular numbers & adding Mele Kalikimaka as our traditional Hawaiian festive number (in the 2016 Xmas Songs folder in Box). All past & present PLUC members are welcome to join us!

Tue 27 Dec Boxing Day Bank Holiday – XMAS BREAK.

We return to the Lewis Club on Tue 3 Jan 2017.

As ever, please check through the PLUC Song List to ensure you’ve printed all the songs in it. We’re often joined by fresh batches of folk in the New Year and it’s easier for sharing music if the rest of us have copies handy. Thanks.

Here’s UkeFoote playing a wintery uke & theremin version of Once Upon A December, from Anastasia:

Sheila’s Birthday Bash 1

We were delighted to be asked to play at Sheila’s birthday party – a joint do for her fiftieth & her cousin Jenny’s fortieth – down in Horn Park, Lee. It was the first time the entire group of us has performed a public gig & went absolutely splendidly.

We played two sets of our favourite numbers – twenty songs in total. There are some videos on the way of a few of the tunes and here are a few photos of the event.

Playing on the day were:

Back Row (L – R): Ed, Eddie, Steve, Anya, Jos, Tina, Kev, Emma & Maria

Front Row (L – R): Andrew, Rufus, Chris, Jeanette, Bob, Simon, Sheila & Colin

PLUC 2015 Top Ten – February – The Winner

Voting for our new February song took place at this week’s club night. We were originally going to have an on-line vote afterwards but, once we heard Colin’s McCartney bass line & Chris’s soloing, Something was the clear winner. So we’ll be rehearsing it for the rest of the month to ensure it’s in our repertoire. Very fitting, as George Harrison’s birthday is this month. Read the rest of this entry »
