The Next GUS meeting – Open Podium Edition – 16 april

 

Hi folks,

De volgende meeting van de super-gezellige, extra aardige, ukulele club – de Groningen Ukulele Society, zal plaats vinden op dinsdag 16 April in de bovenruimte van o’ceallaigh Irish Pub vanaf 19:00 uur.

Deze is een ‘speciale editie’ meeting. De Ukulele Open Podium editie, dat betekent dat de eerste helft van de avond een GUS singalong is- zoals we gewend zijn-, maar na de pauze is het open podium met een kleine muziekinstallatie boven waarbij iedereen uitgenodigd is om een liedje te spelen, ongeacht  niveau of ervaring. De bedoeling is dat het leuk en gezellig wordt (want dat is Ukulele toch?)

Neem je ukulele, een glimlach en je zin (of gezin) mee en geniet van de wereld van Ukulele.

Vergeet niet om op tijd te zijn als je een mooie zitplaats wil.

the next meeting of that super fun and extra friendly ukulele club – the Groningen Ukulele Society is on tuesday the 16th of april, upstairs at o’ceallaigh Irish Pub from 19:00.

This is a ‘special edition’ meeting. The Ukulele Open Podium‘ edition. That means thatthe first half of the evening is the normal GUS singalong and after the pause the open podium begins.

There will be a small music installation and everyone is invited to get up and play a song, regardless of nuveau  experience. The idea is to have a nice fun evening. (coz that’s ukulele !)

Bring your uke, a smile and your enthusiasm (and maybe a friend) and bathe yourself in the wonderful world of Ukulele.

Don’t forget to be on time if you want to find a good seat.

The 7th Big Ukulele Xmas Singalong – what a ball

What fun.

Back in the beautuful Lola celebrating xmas the ‘ukulele way’ with the GUS and friends.

In a crowded hall deep in the heart of Groningen, ukulele folk from the Netherlands and Germany came together to uke up the night.

And what a  wonderful night of music and friendship it was.  Kicked off with a performance from the GUS Band to wake up the crowd and get the ukulele train a’rollin.

A special treat this year with the wonderful – Professor Peter – wooing us with his performance of 20’s and 30’s classics, great stuff.

And of course a  ‘surprise’ mini concert from the Coconut Knakkers.

Singalongs and  great open podium acts filling the spaces and adding to the fun.

I think we might keep this GUS thing going !!!

Here are a few photo’s of the evening.
