Groningen Ukulele Society play Rumbling Earth Festival

On a sunny saturday in june if you wandered down the high street in Groningen, weaving through the throng, you might have heard a chirpy melody bouncing of the walls of the local shops…   Is that a bird ? is that a bee ?   no no no, that’s the sound of ukuleles !!   You would be forgiven over here in the Netherlands for not recognising that bouncy little sound,  there arn’t many ukuleles to be found…  But here in Grunn,  The ukulele recognition movement has begun..   with that funky little club, the Groningen Ukulele Society,  playing here and there, giving the ukulele some air!!

This time we where elbowing our way into the Rumbling Earth Festival (not really – we where invited)  – a new event in Groningen to promote the idea of a  ‘ free musical city ‘ where performers are not required to buy a licence to play on the streets – ( a strange but normal thing here in the netherlands).

We where there, we where heard, people smiled, people danced, Job Done !!!!

The Groningen Ukulele Society Xmas Party 2015

Again, this Xmas, the GUS where on the loose with our 4th annual Xmas party and singalong..

Due to an ever expanding club and uke-frend group we changed location to the slightly bigger (but not big enough) Rock n Roll Bar – the Crowbar…

The GUS where joined by the Bremen Ukulele Club (Bremer Ukulelenorchester) and Ukulele Club Wolderwijd (formerly the Hardewijkse Ukulele Club).

There where also Punk Rockers in the  building !!!   Therefore, the GUS felt obliged (obliged?? we loved it!!) to do out ‘Rock n Roll set.

Followed by Wolderwijd and then Bremen on the stage…   Wonderbaar…

Fun, fun and more fun for everybody involved…  Even the punks stayed in the building!!

Here is a taste of the evening via the Crowbar you-tube…

And here is the full Groningen Ukulele Society concert

More to come, thanks to everybody who joined in to make this a great evening of ukulele cheer n beer.
