Bayside Ukes had a fun day on Sunday performing at the Hills Ukulele Festival, held at the Emerald Primary School in Emerald, Victoria. The weather was perfect, with sunshine and a light mountain breeze. It was a pleasant drive through the hills and lots of people had made the trip to attend the event.
Bayside Ukes members enjoyed performing nine songs on the main stage for an appreciative audience. Thank you to everyone for your hard work with the rehearsals and for your good humour.
The festival was very relaxed and it was enjoyable seeing the other groups who were programmed throughout the day. There was great food and coffee and a ukulele market place that was very popular.
Thank you Dan and Emerald Primary School for hosting a wonderful festival. We had a wonderful time and will definitely put it in our calendar for next year.
If the bustle and stress of city life is getting you down there is nothing like a change of scenery to refresh the spirit, especially were there are multitudes of ukuleles. That’s a good reason to head to the Dandenong Ranges for the Hills Ukulele Festival next weekend.
On Sunday May 19 at 11am Bayside Ukes will be playing on the main stage at Emerald Primary School. For more information see the previous post on this website.
Here’s a song to get you in the mood for a trip to the hills.
We’ll be packing our ukes for the misty mountains, up to hills where the ukulele spirit flies! Come and join us.
Only two weeks until the Hills Ukulele Festival in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges. As you can see, Bayside Ukes is amongst some great company on the above poster.
Those of us in Bayside Ukes, who are taking part, have been practicing hard and we will be playing some fun songs to get everyone’s feet tapping. Our set is on Sunday, May 19 at 11 am on the main stage.
