Gig Reminder - this Sunday 1st June - and other news

Hi,

Just a reminder for anybody who, like me, missed Sunday’s Uke-up. We have our gig on Sunday playing at The Levenshulme Square Residents’ Association street party.

The location is Cuthbert Avenue and runs from 1pm-3pm.
Here’s where it is;
Cuthbert Avenue

We’ll play 2 sets of ~20 minutes at about 1.30 and 2.30, all from Greatest Hits.

So arrive at 1pm, dress brightly (think Carnival) and bring music stands if possible and your best singing voices (and ukes).

In other news: Unfortunately we will not be doing the gig at Hennigans on the 20th. But do not be disheartened, there may be something else in the offing - watch this space.

(Oh and don’t forget it’s Manitoba Hal on the 7th! - spaces still available)

Hello!

Don’t forget, it’s Uke Up tomorrow, 7pm at The Kingsway.

We’ll be doing some preparation for our Street Party gig on 1st June. The plan is two twenty minute sets and we’ll base these on selections from the Greatest Hits songbook .

Also bring Songbooks 1,2 and 3.

See you tomorrow.

2 Potential Gigs in June, volunteers required

We have, not one one, but two potential Uke-up gigs in June,

1) Sunday June 1st. Lou, founder of our Uke-up has asked if we want to play at a street party (we would be fed and watered\9

2) Friday 20th June: We have a possible 20 minute slot at Hennigans Sports Bar as part of the Levenshulme Food and Drink Festival. Possibly six-seven songs.

For both we need willing Ukers. Possibly 5-6 for the Hennigans gig, as many as want to for the 1st. We’d also need to work out which songs.

And, both aren’t v. far away.

So anyone who fancies playing, get in youth as soon as possible.

Manitoba Hal Workshop/Gig payment

We need to get all payment for places on the Manitoba Hal workshop in by Friday May 16th at the latest please!

There are three options to pay:

  1. BACS bank transfer - Preferred option as it costs nothing to do and very easy from internet banking, please reply to this email if you’d like to do this and I shall drop you the appropriate bank details by return!
  2. Cash is always good! See Ed at Levy Uke Up (he can drop in to Stockport Ukulele Players  in a couple of weeks if you’d like me to).
  3. Paypal - they do charge a small fee, so this is not the preferred option.

Uke-up Tonight

Don’t forget, it’s Uke Up on Sunday at the Kingsway.

A couple of things in the works for songbooks, they’re not quite ready yet though, so we thought that we’d go for Songbook 1Songbook 2 and the Greatest hits this time.

If you have suggestions for the Favourites book, we’d still love suggestions from all of you, so if you’ve not suggested anything yet, do let us know what you fancy.

See you all on Sunday!

Faves Songbook contributions still welcome

Hi folks. contributions for our Levy Uke-upFaves songbook are still welcome. We have nine or so candidates so far (but some people have made more than one suggestion so they may get more than one song in the book). 

Next Uke-up Tomorrow

Don’t forget, it’s Uke Up tomorrow, 7pm at The Kingsway.
We’ll be working from Songbook 2Songbook 4 and Songbook 6.

Also more suggestions for the Favourites Songbook most welcome.

The time is ripe for a new songbook. We have borrowed the idea of a songbook comprised of songs that are personal favourites of, or have some personal resonance for,  Uke-up members.

So pick a song that means something to you and send it to the usual address (or to the Facebook group). If you have chords or tab all the better.

So it’s up to you.
