Full house tonight… great to have every one aboard… we began the rehearsal with the five tunes selected for this Friday’s appearance at the South Lismore Bowlo in support of the stem cell research fundraiser. We also began work on two new songs for a performance at the next Uke Night in Mullumbimby. Unfortunately there will be too many absent to follow through. Not to worry. We definitely gave our brains a work out..
It was a small group of die hards who came just before Easter to run a few tunes. We also worked on two tunes from A Keim’s book briefly.
We played around with arranging a ‘polite’ version of ‘You Gotta Fight For Your Right To Party’ and ran Georgia Brown with a little bit of MOM…. Irena came along last night. She didn’t seem to be scared off by our profficiency… hope we get to keep her.
3 peeps away tonight. We tried a new ragtime number and explored the sing the strings method for creating harmonies. Then we focused on the 2 new pieces: MOM and 60 Secs. good fun, thanks all.
Great night tonight working on the Bleach Set for this Sunday afternoons set. We also ran some of the new tunes we have been working on as well as a tribute to Mick Jagger who must be in a lot of pain right now. Thank you for you continued efforts and we hope Val gets well soon. Details about the show on Sunday coming in an email…

Last night present was: Jeanti, Terry, Peter, Alex, Margot, Betina (welcome back) Patsy, Melissa (hullo and welcome) and Val. We sang a bunch of tunes from the set and worked on 2 new tunes; Terry’s suggestion of ’60 seconds’ and Peter’s suggestion of Man Of Mystery.
Alex would like to do a blues tune and also pulled out a few tunes from the Australia day Big Breakfast book. The music for Paul Kelly’s ‘One For The Ages’ was taken along, though we didn’t run it as Al was absent. We are working towards our performance at The Bleach Festival on Sunday 23 March.
