The Ukeaholics visited the Phoenix Cultural Centre in Woking, where we played for much of the evening!
We had a great night at the George Abbot – we were asked to play our entire set, and then we were asked for more… Good fun, although a punter did fall on the hosts guitar, much to his consternation.
All seven Ukeaholics crammed into an area of the King’s head normally occupied by a guitarist. We played three numbers – a Queen cover, a Kinks cover and a Madness cover.

Time for some ukuleles for Gavin and his open mic, it’s been too long. Two or three of us will be putting that right.
