Derby Ukulele Club Next meeting Wednesday 25 September
Bandstand Room, Brewery Tap, 7–9 pm
A while ago we were invited to play at Derbyshire Day. It's on at Keddleston Hall from 11am on Sunday 22 September.
It would be a bit like the Bike ride to Elvaston Castle. We would turn up at an arranged time play for a bit wander about and maybe play again. We wouldn't be on the official programme. It would be informal. Bernie Webster, one of the organisers from Radio Derby, says she wants "A roving minstrel feel throughout the day" from musicians. If anyone would like to be a roving (or stationary) minstrel for a while on Sunday, how about meeting up at about 1 pm outside the entrance to the main house? Let me know if you are interested: firstname.lastname@example.org
The gig at the Quad last Wednesday, went swimmingly. :- a) we didn't get booed off, b) we've been asked back on Oct 9th for a repeat performance!
Turnout was good with 15 players, a combination of old regulars and new members. Also we were photographed and appeared in the Derby Evening Telegraph (Sat, 14/09/13 edition). A web version of the article can be found here. The publicity also seems to be benefiting the club as we had a number of new faces at the regular session that followed.
Derby Ukulele Club Next meeting Wednesday 11 September
Bandstand Room, Brewery Tap, 7–9 pm. Please note that, this will follow our public appearance in the Cafe at Quad from 6:30-7:00, so the usual meeting may be a bit late starting. If playing at the Quad please try to get there a bit early (about 6) so we can get ourselves organised. See you there!
