We love performing at the Cairns Ukulele Festival, so thanks to Gaby Thomasz and her team for once again organizing this amazing event and inviting us in.
Some of us went cruising (on boats), others threw themselves into workshops and we all met up at Fogarty Park to perform and to enjoy all the many fantastic players. Catching up with other ukers from all over the place is always a plus as was seeing Richard again with OUR “Big Red Couch”.
O.K. we didn’t quite strum into the Guinness World Record Book (and probably never will), however standing with 1100 players, singing to The Mavericks’ hit “Dance the night Away”, was an awesome thing to do in anybody’s language.
We kept tight and together on Saturday night, meeting at the Courthouse Hotel for dinner and let loose with the laughter, music and the naughtiness we are capable of dishing out.
The Sunday arvo concert, as usual electric, showcased the best of the Pacific and Asia and ofcourse our own NQ favs Ryo and his “Montgomery Brothers”.
Thanks to Cam, Sue and Rhonda for our happy snap album. We held great restraint in not publishing the untidy bits, you can find them in our Dropbox. Bribes to be paid at our next meeting.
