Theme nights (costumes optional)

March 30, 2009

I was thinking it’d be cool to have some sort of theme night every now and then, for a bit of (extra) cohesion. For example an artist (I’m especially keen on Bowie, Rolling Stones and Radiohead nights myself!) or a year perhaps or even a song/song title theme- e.g. songs about, hmm, I dunno, the weather or some other more exotic topic. This could be a cool way of getting people to bring along song suggestions and just add an extra flavour to the occasional ukearist. Not that we’re not already over-flowing with flavour and fun of course! Who’s with me and what would you suggest…?

    What about taking something well known, like Little Brown Jug or Loch Lomond and see if we can put a ukearist stamp on it. Lots of good suggestions.

    If it’s Cohen and ukuleles that you’re after look no further than Ken Middleton’s brilliant youtube: http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=KenMiddletonUkulele&view=videos&query=cohen

    We all know that the music of Leonard Cohen is crying out for some ukulele attention. I also second cheesy pop hits, and folk

    Great plan! Here’s a few off the top of my head:
    60s, 70s, 80s, Beatles, Cheesy pop chart hits (I can see Hero by Enrique Inglesias working well!), Childrens songs (Puff the magic dragon?), heavy rock, folk….

    The list is endless! You can definitely count me in as game for this.
