Just a quick reminder that it’s Uke Up this Sunday, 7pm at the Kingsway. It’s another free-for-all session, so bring your favourites from the songbooks along to play.
We’ve also finalised the details for the Levy Uke Up Christmas Bash! This will take place on Sunday 8th December, 7pm at the Kingsway. The event will be an unplugged ukulele cabaret followed by a big old sing song from our Christmas songbook. Mulled wine, mulled cider and mince pies will be available from the bar. If you would like to do a turn in the cabaret, make yourself known. Collaborations are positively encouraged :)
If you missed it, there’s some photos from the Supper Club gig up on the website. The MEN also ran a piece on it. The event raised £1000 for the Solomon Project which is fantastic!
See you Sunday!

Well, we had a BLAST at last night’s Supper Club! Everyone got into the Blitz spirit and we loved playing for such an up-for-it crowd who sang and clapped along. We’ll be posting some photos in the coming days. Well done to everyone involved in organising the event - head over to the Supper Club Facebook page, give them a like and stay up to date with their future events.
So, after two months of playing songs from 1940’s, Levy Uke Up will now be getting back to normal, meeting every second and last Sunday of the month at The Kingsway pub from 7pm. Which means it’s Uke Up tonight! Bring your favourites down (a few people have suggested the Greatest Hits songbook) and we can have a good old wig out without any gig pressures. Oh and we’ll be discussing our Christmas plans too (well, it is nearly November…).
See you later!
Just a quick reminder that Uke Up is now weekly until after our Supper Club gig on Saturday 26th October. This should give us plenty of time to prepare. We’ve already started to whittle down the set and have decided to drop Don’t Sit Under The Apple Tree, so that’s one less song to practise!
The next Uke Up is this Sunday 29th September, 7pm at The Kingsway.
Here is the link again for the 1940’s songbook and here is the Youtube playlist for all the songs. Ed also very kindly recorded the songs at our last Uke Up which you can listen to or even download. These are a bit rough and ready but it should give you an idea.
Look forward to seeing you on Sunday!
The next Uke Up is on Sunday 22nd September, 7pm at the Kingsway.
We will continue working from the 1940’s songbook in preparation for our gig on Saturday 26th October.
Check out the Youtube playlist for any songs you’re not sure off. We’re going to have our work cut out so it’s time to get practicing!
