Our pipeline is looking mighty exciting!

Hey TTWUkers!

We are pleased to announce that the TTWUke bug seems to be catching! Thank you to you lovely blog followers for spreading the word!

We have had an exciting week here, the postman has been VERY generous!!

We have purchased a couple of these super cute mini busking amps so we can take full advantage of the Olympics coming to town and entertain the masses as best we can!

We have always had a bit of an issue with mic-ing up our range of acoustic Ukuleles and so we have bought an array of different mics to try out, one of which we used at our gig at The Lazy Lizard last night and it made such a huge difference (more on that later!). There is no point obtaining all this fancy equipment without anything to play it though and so we invested in (treated ourselves to) a fantastic portable PA system so we can play our way through the summer! Below is  pic of a standard afternoon in TTWUke Headquaters….oh such fun!

Sexy Stuff hey?!

So as I mentioned we played a 2 hour gig down on Weymouth beach front yesterday evening. The Lazy Lizard are holding ‘The Sunday Sessions’ every Sunday from 3pm where 3 separate Acoustic acts entertain all the sore-headed locals as they enjoy their last few hours of weekend revelry!

 

We played from 7pm and I have to say it was one of our fave gigs to date! The sun has been shining for well over a week now and the punters were all over the pavement, relaxed, smiling and lounging while taking in the stunning view across Weymouth bay. We are super fortunate to live in such a beautiful, music-filled town!

The title of this post is due to the fact that our name seems to be spreading and new opportunities are popping up all over the place! If you want to see us play our next appearance will be at The Dorchester Curiosity Centre’s Vintage Market on Sunday 10th June at 12.30. Should be a fun-filled day! See the flyer below for more details….

Until next time you beauties! S xx

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.

  1. Does this little beauty take uke and mic??? I’ll probably die if it’s a no, this is just what I’ve been looking for!

    • Do you mean the little amp?! I’m afraid not. We have one for uke and one for mic but they aren’t particularly powerful. Only run off a small 9v battery. Pretty inexpensive though so we bought 3!! 🙂 we got them from the Southern Ukulele Store website if that helps 🙂 xx
