FROM THE TOP (TE ANAU)
We are a group of thirteen extremely varied talented enthusiastic ukulele lovers.
Brought together by Te Anau’s TVNZ1 Good Sorts Jackie Knowles (July 2020),
following a workshop at our local Redcliff Cafe by the Nukes in February 2016
Initially performing only at our Annual Christmas Party in the Park and now sharing our
Uke love at Fundraisers, Waitangi Celebrations,
Birthdays, Schools, Variety Shows, Pop up Cafe Strums and Christmas Parties. We are of varied ages and stages from 16 to 85 years.
Jackie and husband Jeremy (now bass player of 1 year), and Daughter Maggie host
uke jams, initially in their lounge but now in a music studio converted in their shed.
The band is highlighted by Sandy on Violin, Jim on Cajon/Percussion and lead vocalists
Jackie, Jan, Kirsty and Mike on the
washboard. Backing Biatches are Sherron, Bernie, Mihoko, accompanied by Donna and Helen.
Music is magic and the key to survival and sanity. We love how we continue to grow and
strive off each other
and especially the laughs and making new memories.
We are always mindful….”we could be better,” but you get what you pay for lol.
We can’t wait to get over the hill for our first out of town
experience and meet more like minded ukulele lovers.
BRING ON LAUDER UKULELE FESTIVAL 2021!
