Olympic Enjoyment

Trolleys at the ready…All set for our first eve of Busking!

Four days of busking in and we are sleeeepy! Having a well earned day off! We have been so lucky with the beautiful sunshine which has certainly shown Weymouth off to it’s absolute best! We have loved meandering around our home town which is literally buzzing. Full to the brim of people enjoying themselves, tanning, munching fish and chips, enjoying a few beers by the harbour and generally having a fantastic time!

Specially designed and commissioned. Cute!

We have made a few friends and fans along the way and made it into the local paper and even onto the national news!! We are making a video blog of our adventures to be posted once edited at the end of the 2 weeks. I hope everyone is enjoying the Olympic hype as much as we are. I would definitely recommend a trip down to Weymouth, host of the Sailing events. There are numerous festivals, street entertainment huge screens on the beach (we watched the opening ceremony on these! Amazing!) and just a great atmosphere in the whole town.

Fun at the Fair – B.side Festival Weymouth.

This evening we have the exciting task of performing at the iCCi Dome situated outside Weymouth Pavillion.

“The ICCI360 Arena is set to ‘WOW!’ audiences with a truly amazing 360° panoramic experience. There will be an exciting series of live performances, festivals, interactive events for all ages and an array of specially commissioned 360° film screenings. The immersive ICCI360 Arena will form a central element in the Maritime Mix – London 2012 Cultural Olympiad by the Sea programme.”

We are opening the evening as a support act to Rhyme Futur. Tickets are £8 for the evening. Eeeeeeek!

Hope you are lucky enough to get chance to visit Weymouth over the next few weeks and hopefully pop by to see us performing!!

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.
