The Mullum Uke Club
You are here
Held upstairs at the Mullumbimby Ex-Services Club, the Mullum Uke Club sees enthusiasts from around the region get together and celebrate the ukulele.
Mullumbimby resident Stu, known as Stukulele, formed the club back in 2011. Along with his passion for all things music, Stu has extensive experience teaching children and adults ukulele. He wanted a place for his students to play together, and the Mullum Uke Club was born. The monthly meet-ups proved to be incredibly popular, with a regular attendance of between 70 and 200 people.
Meetings take place on the last Thursday of each month. Ukulele players of all levels and ages come together to sing and play songs from a themed monthly songbook, which can be downloaded from the Mullum Uke Club’s newsletter. The songbook contains 20 well-known songs suitable for beginners and seasoned players alike. Players are welcomed to suggest songs, too.
Those who intend to play will need to bring their own ukulele, and if possible, a tuner. If you don’t have one, you’re welcome to come along, watch, and sing. Kids of all ages and adults just starting out are encouraged to play – the number one objective of the Mullum Uke Club is to have fun.
This month, the Mullum Uke Club is turning 5! Players will celebrate with the Songs of the Silver Screen songbook. Plus, singer-songwriter Leigh Carriage will be attending the birthday meet-up on July 28 at 6:30pm. Entry is $12.50 for adults, and $2.50 for children under 10.
