Doing our bit for Charadeeee


After a month off gigging we are back and doing our bit for charity this month. Firstly we are performing this Sunday (14th October) at the Dorchester Curiosity Centre. As it’s their 1st anniversary they are going to use their monthly Vintage Market to raise money for the Air Ambulance and Barnardos and have organised a cider bar, children’s entertainment and lots of stalls. We had the pleasure of playing at a Vintage Market here before the summer and had a great time. Do come along and support these two great causes, as well as picking yourself up a vintage bargain or two and enjoying our ukulele sounds.

Our second gig see’s us taking part in Weymouth’s very first Oxjam mini-festival. We were approached by one of the organisers when we were busking this summer and we are delighted to be taking part. The event takes place on the 27th October at the Golden Lion, more details can be found about it here and we will keep you posted with line-up developments:Image!/oxjamweymouth

Although we have been quiet on the gig front this month, behind the scenes we have been wood shedding. We’ve been experimenting with new songs, styles and arrangements and we’re looking forward to trying some of them out in the next few months. The newbies include versions of songs by Tina Turner, The Darkness and Cat Empire to name a few. And we can’t wait to get some Christmas numbers on the go come December!!

If you have any requests of songs you’d like us to cover, do get in touch. We always love to hear new ideas and try things out. We also hope to get some new videos recorded and up on our YouTube channel soon, so keep your eyes and ears peeled friends.

Bye for now,

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.
