2014 - what a year. From the awful tragedy of suddenly losing our friend Brian, to the exuberant fun of the inaugural Whitstable Ukathon.
We never know what's around the corner, but with a calm sea and a fair wind 2015 will bring us the second Whitstable Ukathon (watch this space ) and, I hope, many more sessions of trial-and-error, seat-of-your-pants musicianship from the 40 or more ukanoobas who get together on an occasional basis at the Golf Club to grab music by the scruff of its neck, and box its ears.
See you in February for the next session!
Hello and welcome!
Hello and welcome to the blog for Bay City Ukers! We are a ukulele club who started meeting in February 2011, and now meet up about once a month at the Golf Club, off Nelson Road, Whitstable. The idea was to create a uke group for people living on the coastal strip of East Kent who found it hard to get to groups in the more central towns.
Playing ukulele has become an extremely popular pastime again over the last few years and uke groups are appearing everywhere. Each is different but ours focuses on simply having fun playing together and doesn't take itself seriously. Beginners are very welcome and we can choose some easy songs to play if you have only just started.
Gordon's email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any further questions this blog doesn't answer. Hope to see you there! The wearing of tartan is neither necessary nor obligatory, and if you have a non-uking partner, feel free to bring them along to shake their maracas and sing along.
