A Pensioners Ukulele Band you think?? This mixed group of musicians have been together for over two years, going from strength to strength. Based in the East Riding of Yorkshire, we play all over the area And all for FREE. We are hugely popular, we play at Burton Agnes Jazz and Blues Festival, indeed they want us on two days in 2020.. Who knew Ukes could do Jazz and Blues. Invited back to Sewerby Hall and Gardens for Yorkshire Day. for the 3rd year running Indeed this year 2019, we were filmed by local news programme Look North. This year we have had concerts every month of the year., and invited back in 2020. Plus we play Christmas concerts, in Beverley Minster, and in the Hall at Burton Agnes.
The players and singers are very versatile, not only super singers and harmonisers, but play other instruments too.... Trumpet, Spoons,clarinet, banjo, banjoleles harmonica to name a few.
Another important achievement is that over the past couple of years we have raised over £4000.
What we would like to achieve is to make a CD, at a recording studio in Hull. Because we are not rich, the owner has given us a good deal., full use of studio and all his recording experience for £400, then the sleeve which has been designed by a band member, will cost £100. So in total £500, is the sum we would like to raise.If someone is hugely generous, say donating £100 they can select a song from our repertoire, and have it on the CD, plus getting name on the back sleeve. The CD will be available at our concerts and used as a fund raising tool.
We play all sorts of music, folk, country, old time stuff and pop. Not too much George Formby!.
