YY is the very first ukulele orchestra established by GBU in March 2015.
Yarra YUkers meet in the dining room at the wonderful YARRA HOTEL, 295 Johnston Street, Abbotsford.
The orchestra is preceded by Beginner sessions from 6-7pm, in case you want to check things out first.
Then, from 7:30 to 9pm+ is the rehearsal of the Yarra YUker’s ukulele orchestra.
COST: $15 casual, or…
buy a ‘UkeTen’: x10 ukulele orchestra sessions in 2015 for $12 (or $12 each). You can use them as you like until the end of the year. If you miss out on a couple of weeks, you don’t lose your money!
For history’s sake, we should note that the Yarra Yuker’s first performance was on Tuesday 2 June at KLUB MUK – Melbourne’s monthly ukulele open mic – at 303 High Street, Northcote. We played a ripper version of Robert Palmer’s ‘Addicted to Love’ and also covered Allan Taylor’s ‘It’s Good To See You’ with harmonies to die for!

And it looks like we’ll step for another visit to KLUB MUK before the end of the year. 🙂
