Hey up folks, in the absence of Uketator Mick on Wednesday, he will be attending an Australia Day Awards Dinner, we will muddle on in his absence. We will continue to refine our HONK! set for the Blue Mountains Ukulele Festival on the 8th February. It's not far away.

Just in case you…

My Wonderful Swingaleles 

It’s been a wonderful year musically, and I can only see it getting better and better with all the various splinter groups forming. I wish you all the best for the season, and once a day play Raymondo’s chord book 5 times to keep your fingers nimble.
