What a fun session we had yesterday?! And our new logo t-shirts look fantastic! Thank you to The Fancy Dress Experience http://www.thefancydressexperience.co.uk/ in Headingley – if you didn’t get one you can drop in a purple top or t-shirt to them and they will logo it up for £6.50!

I really enjoyed myself as always… it’s always good fun to prepare for gigs and events.

9th April 2014

Howdy Ukulele buddies!

I love our Wednesday evenings learning songs on the ukulele! I always have such a great time with you all!

We have put a lot of time and effort into learning our songs over the last few months and it really shows. We now have a great repertoire under our belts and hopefully your confidence in performing them soon is growing. Keep up the practise you guys!

Here is what we did last night

WALKING ON SUNSHINE
