Richie from UOGB with a Ukearist t-shirt!

February 1, 2010

Fame at last for the humble Monday Ukearist!  Here’s a pic of Richie from the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain proudly wearing one of our very own Monday Ukearist t-shirts, taken last week in Belgium:

He explains:

“All I can remember is being strangely drawn to the light, after imbibing a small glass of Trappiste beer.
No wonder. The bulb had a filament in it.
Quite a rare sight nowadays!”
He also let me know that they are playing up in Perth on May 25th.  I am almost definitely going, anyone else fancy it?

    great photo
    I’m definitely up for seeing them in May, a reminder nearer the time might be helpful

    Yes, I (the person, who runs the http://uogbfans.de site) went to Belgium and took that picture. You wouldn’t believe, how long Richie stood there with his arms raised like that just to give us a chance to get a good photo. I was deeply impressed.

    I can also confirm, that he is wearing his new t-shirt with great pride.

    By the way, the blurry leather jacket on the right is Jonty hurrying out of the photo…

    He contacted me through the website, saying he liked the t-shirt so I said I’d send him one! The picture was taken by the person who runs the http://uogbfans.de/ site apparently.

    OK, come on. Stop teasing! Details, I demand details!

    How did he get the shirt? Who was in Belgium to take the photo?

    Do tell or … well, I don’t know what to threaten …

    Tell anyway!!
