This is a song from a British Glam Rock band, from 1972 called "Wig Wam Bam".

It's my first ever public performance outside of open mic nights at our local acoustic jam (UnplugTheWood). If anyone had said to me just over a year ago before I'd even held a ukulele that I'd be singing solo, or even playing an instrument - let alone in public, I'd have told them that they were mad!

Huge fun, don't care if anyone thinks I'm mad - I'm happy!

Hey, Phooto! Just commenting here, too (also did on Season 70) -- this performance was TOP NOTCH, hands-down one of the BEST uke videos I've seen and I LOVED it! No pressure or anything, but I can't wait to see what you do next!!!! :-) I'll say it again -- like I did on Season 70 -- BRAVO!!!

Brilliant - chords and lyrics!

I've been working on a few of my own songs recently, but they can now take a back seat whilst I learn this! :D

What a rave from the grave, takes me back to my teenage years. That was a fantastic video, I enjoyed it so much I watched it twice.
