COVID-19 NOTICE BELOW
Welcome to the official web site of the Tuggeranong Ukulele Group (Inc)
(TUGs for short).
TUGs is a family friendly club that meets to play, sing, socialise and have fun at our uke sessions, group events and performances throughout the Canberra region. Uniquely, we play in a Stage Band setting, with our ukuleles being complemented with Bass Guitar, mixed Percussion and Harmonica and Tin Whistle.
We play many genres of music, ranging from 50’s and 60’s Rock and Roll through to Pop and Blues. We hope all TUGs members will contribute to the enjoyment of all, and will be able to join in our activities as their time permits. We play, sing and enjoy ourselves.
COVID-19 – Please note that all regular Sunday rehearsals and additional meetings for 24 March and 7 April have been cancelled until further notice. The committee is exploring creative alternative activities to stay in touch with members. Ukulelemail, the club’s communication email, will be used to do this. Keep your ukulele handy and play often.
Becoming a member of TUGs is easy. Interested persons should attend one of our regular sessions which are held at the Rainbow Room at the Canberra Southern Cross Club, Corinna Street, Woden. See our ‘Events’ page for details of our 2020 session dates.
Then, all you need to do is see our friendly Doorperson to join TUGS and to then start receiving our regular Ukulelemails in which all club news including upcoming performance gigs and playlists, songs for rehearsals, and social events etc. are advised.
We will have singing classes and ukulele classes in 2020. Our contact for registrations and/or questions is Doreen on firstname.lastname@example.org. The dates for the singing lessons in 2020 have been set as follows – 2 and 16 February; 1 and 15 March; 5 and 19 April.
We extend an invitation to all visiting ukesters to visit us if you are in Canberra. You can be assured of a warm welcome and we’ll loan you our music so you can fully join in our sessions.
Our rehearsals are the first and third Sunday of each month. Where a month contains five Sundays we still only meet on the first and third Sunday of each month. Our rehearsals for 2020 will begin on 2 February.
Following singing or beginner ukulele classes our First Session is usually a Group Strum-A-Long 1.30pm to 2.15pm (Easy 1, 2, 3, 4 chord songs); Afternoon Tea 2.15pm to 2.45pm and our Second Session – Group Strum-A-Long or Performance Practice 2.45pm to 3.25pm. All our rehearsals and known events for 2020 are on the website at Local Uke Events. Come and check us out!
