Hello everyone from Marlow, Bucks, UK
Apologies if you already read about this in the new members section.
===========
I have just joined Ukulele Underground on the advice and recommendation of John Caudrey.
I am fairly new to the ukulele and have been enjoying John's RUG sessions in Reading, UK. I tried, with little success, to find a more local group so being recently retired, I decided to set up my own!
Please look at my new website at
www.marlowuke.co.uk
.. any comments and advice most welcome.
I haven't got a venue or programme yet and only have very few interested people so I need to advertise and recruit (preferably fairly new uke players like me) before kicking off .. a local pub may provide a room but I would like to get a dozen or more players before committing to them.
So onwards and upwards!
Wish me luck and best wishes to you all.
Brian

Website looks good so far!

I've been meaning to get along to a RUG night but so far it's evaded me. Marlow is fairly close to me and there's certainly plenty of great pub locations scattered in or just outside the town.



EDIT: I'll be there!! :)

I am originally from Henley and my dad is still down south. I work for him, so I still get down quite a lot.

I would love to come along depending on when you're playing.

The inaugural meeting on Monday was a brilliant introduction for many of the 30 participants that I counted. It was really great to see the smiles on the faces of so many newbies who obviously didn't anticipate that they would actually be able to play 7 or 8 songs by the end of their first evening.

A terrific first night Brian, very many congratulations on such an auspicious start to what I think is likely to become a very lively group. I'm really looking forward to Monday 27th.

Agreed it was a very enjoyable night -Brian had clearly put a lot if time into making the evening a success.
