Christmas Party 2016

Hello friends!

Please come to party with us on 18th December at The Fleece on Westgate, Otley from 8:30pm!

Expect some fun tunes (some with a Christmas theme!) and good times with friends. All welcome – if you play a little bit and have only been coming for a short while… join in the songs you know! The party is also for our non-playing friends to have a good sing song and dance (it has been known!)

Hope to see you thereπŸ™‚

Spookulele 2016 in Photos!

Thank you to everyone who came out on Saturday to Korks! We had such a great time. Players and audience members made such an effort with fancy dress and it looked and (in the case of the band!) sounded brilliant! We got the audience dancing and singing along, which is always fantastic.

Tim H (OUO) won first prize for best dressed ukulele player. His gruesome costume make up (and zombie walk) was spectacular!
Jenny S won first prize for best dressed audience member

Here are some photos taken by Simon C – thank you!πŸ™‚

Have a look at some more photos John H – thank you!πŸ™‚

Autumn/Winter 2016

I hope you will be able to join us for our first session back after the summer break – this Monday 5th September 7pm-9pm.

We’ll be learning lots of new songs together and continuing to develop our ukulele skills! The sessions are open to players of all abilities – some will be 4-chord fun songs and some will have more challenging parts – but there will always be something for everyone!

We’ve got Otley Folk Festival, Otley Beer Festival and Spookulele to look forward to all before December… so I hope you can come and be a part of the funnest and friendliest band in town!

Looking forward to seeing you all soon

Jen
