Perks of the job….

Hello again you beautiful ukulele fans,

The sunshine has been out and we have been making the most of our new gaff on the beach! It is also the perfect weather to enjoy the joyful sounds of the uke, hailing from sunny Hawaii it is meant to be enjoyed in the sun, near the beach which is EXACTLY what we have been doing although I think we generally look a bit happier about it than these gals…..


Our job takes us to all sorts of weird and wonderful places and this month we had the pleasure of playing at a beautiful wedding at Bristol Zoo. As well as having the honour of being part of so many stunning, special days we often end up with all sorts of other perks, our most recent one being “out of hours” access to the Zoo! We got to wonder around a closed, crowd-less zoo and see the animal’s in a more relaxed state…..a lovely day out as well as a fab gig!

 If you are a regular visitor you may notice our new & improved swanky header at the top of this page. It has been designed by a fan of ours who took it upon himself to update our previous picture and make it more inkeeping with our style & we think he has done a bloomin’ marvelous job and couldn’t be happier 🙂 Cheers Kev!!

Our next outing is another fab opportunity to spread our music far and wide at the Portland Port….we will be playing for cruise-liner passengers as they board the boat ready to hit the high seas….we’ll let you know how our sea-legs fair 😉

So long me hearties….until next time,

Stacey 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.
