  • Christmas Gig at Daventry Dementia Cafe

  •  Date Posted: Thu, 30 Nov 2023
    The Danetre Ukulele Orchestra were delighted to perform at an early Christmas Party held by the Daventry Dementia Cafe this week. The Dem Cafe is one of two charities that the Orchestra are raising funds for this year through the donations received for their performances. A good time was had by all with many members of the audience getting up and dancing and singing along to the numbers performed by the Orchestra, who performed one set of usual music and then did a quick gear change into Christmas jumpers and hats for the second set (after mince pies) of Christmas music. 
    The Danetre Ukulele Orchestra were given an open invitation to return again soon and entertain the carers and those they care for. 
    The Chaiman of the Orchestra said "This was a great start to our Christmas gigs schedule.

    Here at Danetre Ukulele Orchestra we are rehearsing for all our Christmas performances as listed in our Events column. Some of these events are open to the public so do come along and see us. 

    We are rehearsing some of our old favourites, some new ones and some familiar ones that you will know too; not all of them perhaps with the tune you are expecting.

    We have just completed a recording to be submitted to a national radio station's Christmas competition. See the link at the end to hear us.
    Composers: Chaz de-Whalley and Andy Piercy

    And we will finish the year wih a Club evening Christmas party.

    Happy Christmas everyone and a peaceful New Year from all of us at Danetre Ukulele Orchestra.
