Bayside Ukes is very busy at the moment getting ready for our spot at the Hills Ukulele Festival on Sunday, May 19. We will be performing on the main stage at 11.00 am and are very excited to have been invited to participate in this wonderful event.
The Hills Ukulele Festival takes place from May 18 & 19 at Emerald, situated in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges which are part of the Greater Melbourne area. For anyone unfamiliar with this precious and scenic area of Victoria the following drone video should give you an idea .

I’m sure many players and fans of the ukulele will greatly enjoy this event and the wonderful setting. Hope to see you there.
On Tuesday, January 29 at 7 pm, Bayside Ukes are back at the Hampton Community Centre.
As we head into our sixth year we plan to include some new and exciting songs that will sound great on the ukulele and will enhance everyone’s playing and singing skills.
This year there will also be plenty of opportunities for those who are raring to get out and perform with the group.
We are lucky enough to have many dedicated members, some of who play more than one instrument and are happy to share their knowledge with newcomers.
To get the most out of our sessions, we recommend that absolute beginners have some lessons before joining the group. Also see our Links page for online lessons. Beginners who can already play some basic ukulele chords will benefit greatly from playing with more experienced players and should improve quickly with our help.
We are a friendly bunch so don’t be afraid to come along and join us. It’s cheaper than a pint of beer or a glass of good wine and much more fun.
For more information on our sessions see the About section in the above menu.
Bayside Ukes will be performing this coming Sunday at the Sandringham Village Festival on the main stage in Melrose Street at 2.00 pm.
This is a great chance for fellow ukers and those planning to take up the ukulele to come and see what we do. It should be great fun and we look forward to meeting other ukulele players.
The festival is run by the Sandy Village Traders to showcase their businesses with stalls, food and entertainment for people of all ages. It is the tenth anniversary of this popular Bayside event and we are glad to be included.
Bayside Ukes is raring to go in 2018. Hope all our members have had a great summer break and are looking forward to some more ukulele fun.
Tomorrow evening (Tuesday, January 30) our sessions will recommence at the Hampton Community Centre from 7.00 pm. New members are very welcome or if you are visiting our town just pop in.
Hope to see you all there.
Kat, Bayside Ukes Member.

Bayside Ukes will return to the Hampton Community Centre next week on Tuesday 12 July at 7pm.
New members are welcome to join our friendly group of ukulele players. Please be on time to register for the evening. The session will begin at 7:15 sharp and remember to bring your copy of The Ukulele Club Songbook and a music stand.
We hope everyone had a fabulous holiday break. If you have not picked up your ukulele because of too much holiday cheer, now is the time to start practising.
We would also like to thank those members of the group who gave up two days of their holiday to perform for two local groups of senior citizens. We all had a great time.

The two ten week term dates for the second half of the year are:
TERM 3: 12th July – 13th September
TERM 4 : 4th October – 13th December
