The Ukes of Hazard palyed at Amy and Max's wedding on Saturday. It was on the deck of a place called the Boatshed, in Nelson, which juts out over the water in the harbour.
Sun, happy people, lots of pretty girls in nice dresses.
They had asked us to play My girl for them as she walked down the aisle and then I walk the Line while they signed the register. We had a week to learn I walk the line as it's not on our set list.Then we were to play for an hour befor they gathered to eat.

Well it was lovely. Sun, lapping waves, happy people, lots of pretty girls in nice dresses.
Bride arrived on time and we pulled of My Girl ok.
Then powered into Johnny Cash....in the wrong key! Smiled, faked it and kept going and no-one noticed a thing. It wasn't as good as we'd hoped but they loved it so they'll never know!

It was an honour really to be asked (and PAID) to be part of the ceremony.
