For our second Mullum Music Festival, The Northern Rivers Uke Orchestra performed a 45 minute set at the Civic Hall at 1:15 on the Saturday 23rd November with special guests The Mana Aloha Hula Dancers + Miss Amber and Parissa Bouass (who did an amazing job of learning two Hawaiian Songs – ‘Green Rose Hula’ and ‘Puamana’.) The set was received well by the crowd of 60 – 70 or so folk who braved the heat inside the hall. The civic hall is a tough gig in that it is acoustically quite hard to pull a good sound, (though by all reports Adam Biggs did a great job). The Dance Troupe overcame some internal friction and performed 4 lovely hulas to the delight of the audience.
Thanks to all for your efforts including all members of the Bangalow Chapter; Bettina, Terry, Peter, Alex, Alan, Jeanti, Patsy and Val. Thanks to guest musicians, Dave Sanders on Drums and none other than Azo Bell on Lap Steel with and a special mention for Rod Coe on Double Bass who also showed up for the first Pop Up Spot on Friday Night.
