Join Stukulele and Miss Amber for Uke Mullum's Uke Night, one of Mullumbimby's most consistently well attended and cherished monthly community events.

Uke Mullum's Uke Night is extra special because on the last Thursday of each month we present a songbook of 20 new songs, usually with a fun theme, which is free to download and print out so you can practice before the event.

On the Night, the songs are projected onto screens and are lead by some of the areas amazingly talented special guest artists and backed by equally acclaimed musicians. This is quality entertainment for next to nothing in a wonderful family environment.

A great excuse to get together for a knees up. If you can play the uke its definitely a plus though more and more patrons come along for the fun atmosphere and a sing-a-long. Some play other instruments... come and join in the fun!

Questions and Answers:

DO I NEED TO BE ABLE TO PLAY THE UKULELE WELL?

Doesn't matter. This is an informal get together of ukulele enthusiasts. Although some tips and pointers may be shared, it is not a formal lesson. How well you play is up to you. The objective is fun... a community sing along. I suggest giving the tunes a run through for sure... though don't feel self-conscious about your ability... just get amongst it and don't forget, you can always play the Z-chord. (The Z chord is the revered chord of the beginner uke player... To execute the chord use the fingers of your left hand (assuming you are strumming with your right) and deaden the strings by lightly placing them on the strings. The result is you are using your Uke as a percussion instrument and everyone thinks you are a remarkably good player. Play the chords you can and 'Z' the rest.

CAN I BRING THE KIDS?

Yes. Kids of any age are welcome, especially to play along and Kids under 15 are FREE. (for the consideration of your fellow patrons please handle any disruptive behavior if the need arises. Like all licensed premises, the bar area is off limits to young-uns.)

IF I DON'T BRING A UKULELE DO I HAVE TO PAY?

Yes please. You are welcome to join in the singing or just watch, though you will still need to pay. This is a great community night of entertainment for ukesters or otherwise. If you are just there for dinner and or drinks that's different, so please let us know at the door... though if you hang around to watch please do the right thing and pay the measly $10. The entry fee helps cover overheads and special guests. Hope to see you there!!

CAN I BUY A UKE AND/OR ACCESSORIES ON THE NIGHT?

You may be in luck. Michael of Gold Coast Ukuleles has been great supporter of Uke Mullum. Most months Michael will bring a selection of ukes and accessories for sale. He does special prices for Uke nights, be sure to tell 'em Stukulele sent ya! And... if we are really lucky Michael will lead a tune.
