Townsville Ukes and the UKER-lyptus Strummers participate in many community and cultural events. We welcome inquiries from charitable organizations and other community groups who would like out performance group to play. See contacts page.
We also organize special events from time to time including weekend's away to sing, play perform and get together. These events usually include workshops run by our more experienced players. These are usually very popular.
From time to time the group books musicians who may be on tour to visit and give workshops and performances. For example, last year, Canadian ukulele player and blues singer Manitoba Hal came to Townsville for us. This was very successful.
BIVOUAC: The 2019 Bivouac Ukulele Muster at Bivouac Junction Is done and dusted. There was no event in 2020.
This event was a wonderful success. It included Workshops in music theory and playing/performing techniques. We enjoyed wonderful meals together, many playing and singing sessions and a BIG concert on Saturday night. On Sunday we played a concert at the Eventide Aged Care Home in Charters Towers and finished off with a great lunch and play-along at the Enterprise Hotel. We were joined this year by the Bowen B.U.G.S., thanks guys!!!
