April @ The Gov


April at the Gov will offer us plenty of opportunities to share and try out some of our newly gathered tips & tricks, with the usual Tuesday night sessions starting from 7pm. Please note that due to the Easter holidays, the official Saturday session for this month will be held on 14 April from 2pm, although there are plans afoot via the AUAS Facebook group to meet on the first Saturday of April for some informal jamming…check in on our Facebook page for more info. You can keep up via our calendar on the AUAS website too.

After tonight’s beginners session with Richard T, the rest of the month looks like this:
Tuesday 10 April from 7pm: AUAS Night — songs to workshop and perform.
Saturday 14 April from 2pm: April Saturday session.
Tuesday 17 April from 7pm: Strumming workshop with Richard T.
Tuesday 24 April from 7pm: AUAS Night — songs to workshop and perform.

Everyone is welcome to these sessions, whether just starting on the uke or even thinking about playing, and if you’ve got an idea for a song you’d like to work on, bring it along. If you’re new, please say hello so we can help you get settled in and strumming straight away!

Don’t forget that uke players down south can also catch up on 1st and 3rd Tuesdays from 7pm to 9pm at Christies Beach Hotel, 12-13 Gulfview Road, Christies Beach.

Other events coming up:

Following on from last winter’s super-successful Uke Muster in Port Lincoln, the AUAS heads to the Port Augusta Uke Extravaganza on 2nd June. There will be workshops by Leslie Gentilin (Port Lincoln) and Richard Gibson (AUAS), with assistance from any AUAS ukers who can make the trip, plus a uke concert on the Saturday night. For details of costs, program etc, please email Richard Gibson at rgibson@scorpex.net.

Looking ahead we find the fledgling Goolwa uke gang organising a workshop day and gig on 25 August, as part of the Just Add Water 2012 festival. More details on this one as plans gel.

If you have any news or info you’d like to pass along to the group, drop Barb or Rosalie an email so we can spread the word. Happy uke-ing!
