Well, Dee Ukes sure know how to party! We had such a great time on Tuesday @ Finmill Centre where Denis started proceedings by singing a specially composed song for Liz who recently had a birthday ( not a special one as had been thought – there’s a clue in the song if you listen carefully ) However, it was still greatly appreciated. Thanks Denis. 🙂
I have had problems with uploading the videos and they won’t play in the normal way, but hopefully by clicking on the link Denis sings a song for Liz you will see and hear his clever words.
As if birthday surprises last week weren’t enough, I was then presented with a whole bag full of goodies.
Each gift came with a clue – see below.
- Some new instruments for you.
2. Hope this is useful in an emergency.
Complete with Chord book, strings, strap, finger pick, tuner and 1 extra little gift – a Winner’s badge. Did I mention we won an Award recently?
3. This will help you get down from the ceiling. (Moi, get high! Never!)
4. Your favourite saying.
5. After a long day.
A lovely bag to keep it all in.
As if all of the above wasn’t enough, I also received a voucher for M & S. Lucky me! Thank you all so much for your generosity, sense of humour and endless fun. 🙂
On with the party pieces. Just click on the names and you should be taken to the videos. We had no shortage of people willing to do a turn. Everyone was fantastic! You will have to click on the back arrow after each video to get back to the Blog.

After we had all tucked into lots of delicious food, the party pieces continued.
Hopefully, you can all see the videos. I’m sure you will agree we have lots of talented people in Dee Ukes. 🙂
Many thanks again to all for a great party and if you are not attending any of the next three gigs, then I look forward to seeing you on Tuesday 15th August.
Glebe House Gig
Dee Ukes managed to fit in another gig this week when we returned to visit Glebe House Day Care Centre in Kirriemuir. Our audience soon settled down with their percussion instruments ready to be our backing group. As well as some regular songs we played a few new songs and I’m pleased to say we literally got the thumbs up from them. Helen was particularly enthusiastic about joining in with the singing and shaking her maracas (which were really plastic bottles filled with rice or peas). Helen took to the dance floor for the very last song and was joined by Willie. It was lovely to see all the smiling faces in front of us throughout our little concert. Great fun as always.
