So I was pleased to get this recent email from Pat Meates that he’s organising a new fortnightly Ukulele Open Mike Night at MB Slattery’s in Rathmines. It kicks off this thursday and I wish Pat all the best. So if you’re looking for another opportunity to show off your singing/uke skills, give it whirl
Just to let you know all the wheels are in motion to launch the Open Uke Night,woo hoo!!
The first night will be on Thursday May 23rd and fortnightly thereafter. The venue is upstairs at MB Slatterys in Rathmines,Dublin 6.
Bus routes from city centre are: 14,15, 65,83,140. There is also free parking in the street beside the venue after 7pm.
I would like to kick things off about 9pm on the night to have enough time to fit in all the uke players who turn up(hopefully lots)
Thanks for your support and I’m sure we’ll all have a great time.
Peter Delaney has been playing the ukulele as his main instrument for longer than anyone I know in Ireland. As anyone who has seen and heard Peter will tell you he’s a fine singer/songwriter and this new album “Witch Bottle” has some beautiful tunes. Check it out.
