The Hull Ukulele Group came about as an excuse to go to the pub, but the plan backfired when 15 people turned up at the first meeting. Over a few beers, some crisps, and a Johnny Cash song, the Hull Ukulele Group was born. They regularly perform around Hull & East Yorkshire, where we have become a popular fixture at local events and festivals, including the Clipper Race, Ella Street Festival etc.
Just a quick reminder that the next meeting at OEG will be 8pm on Monday 4th March.
I realise that 10 of us went to see Ukebox at Adelphi and I know you are all keen to play new music – so can I ask that people only bring 3 or 4 new songs to the next meeting.
Last Monday we had a look at “The Final Countdown” and “Holding Out for a Hero” and frankly, I think they are “non starters”.
Also – New players.
If you are a “Lurker” (someone who reads the webpage or get the email but doesn’t want to get involved) – HELLO!.
We are always looking for new members who want to learn, want to play but are a little frightened that we’ll take your dinner money and beat you up at “play time”
We are a friendly bunch and welcome new people.
If you have a ukulele and simple don’t know where to start or if you are a maestro and are willing to put up with us – come along!
I’ve been busy organising a different practice space. This one is better for learning and practicing together. The pub is great for a social night, but if we need to go over a song several times and actually hear ourselves the “other Monday” night is at a much better venue. It has various facilities that can help us.
The question I get asked a lot is when is the next meeting in the pub – check out here : CALENDAR
New players are always welcome and we love to have new faces around. We are a friendly, non-judgemental group of people who simply like the Uke.
Next meeting is (in the calendar link above) and Monday 18th February 2019
