Spring Break and the wonders of a long weekend…

Hello Friends,

After a rather busy and stressful week, including a nasty cold and lost voice for poor Stacey- we finally made it in one piece to Sunday where we played a cracking set at the Lazy Lizard’s Spring Break Festival. Stacey’s voice held out beautifully and there wasn’t even a sneeze down the microphone as we whizzed through a selection of old favourites and plenty of new ones. These included ‘Survivor’ by Destiny’s Child, ‘Disco 2000’ by Pulp and ‘When September Ends’ by Greenday. The latter we really had a good play with and inserted a few time signature changes, creating a gorgeous toy-box sounding waltz section in the middle.

Being a bank holiday weekend there was a great crowd and a happy relaxed atmosphere. It also coincided with the Weymouth Kite Festival so the views outside the window of kites being flown on the beach in the sun really added to the day.

It has made us very excitied for the summer!  Roll on the gigs.

With Love L x




About tiltherewasuke

Take two music loving ladies. Brew a friendship for twelve years. Add a quirky instrument. Stir in an idea. Leave to stand for a couple of months. You should be left with a duo who call themselves 'Til There Was Uke. A Vocal/Ukulele duo featuring Lucy Broddle on Ukulele and Stacey Rae Hobday on Lead Vocals. With our blend of original arrangements, whistle solos, creatively inspired looks and attention to detail we hope to entertain our audience with a mixture of well know and long forgotten classic tunes that have been administered with the TTWUke treatment! That treatment takes many guises and ranges from an old school Greenday standard with a time signiature change twist to an Amy Winehouse number sprinkled with a latin feel.
