UUU Rehearsals – Newkulele 2014 & Central Coast Ukulele Festival
The UUU is the rehearsal name for the Ukastle Ukestra. We have UUU sessions to bring together all of the Lower Hunter Ukestrans who wish to perform at major events together. The Ukastle Ukestra has performed at many ukulele festivals nationally. Our most memorable performance to date was the 2012 Newkulele Festival where we estimate 120 ukestrans performed together as a single unit. It was a very moving and exciting performance.
For the 2014 Newkulele Festival the Ukastle Ukestra is opening the Friday night concert with 3 songs, and closing on Sunday with another 3 or 4.
Newkulele Festival Repertoire – Almost dead certs.
There has been some debate amongst ukestrans as to what songs best represent us. The following are almost certain.
- Way Down in the Hole
- Catch My Disease
- How to make gravy
- Heart and Soul
Only one or two of the following will be chosen. Decision is still in play.
- Somebody that I used to know
- I was made for loving you
- Sunshine of your love
