Aloho-ho-ho

Aloha you glorious lot,

Thank you for another absolute gem of an evening last night. It really is a joy to sing, strum & laugh with such lovely people.

First up, a big welcome to our new friend Charlotte – we hope you had a great time & that you’ll come back to join us next time!

We had a good attempt at playing songs from books other than the performance book…book 5 is quite something huh?! We fared better in our enjoyment & playing of the glorious songs in Book 6 & our CHU’s book of the dead (book 7) – we’ve definitely got ourselves some new favourites & potential performance songs there. “The Ballad of Freda & Barry” is pure gold & next time we meet we’re going to speed up “Plastic Jesus” & see how much more we love it.

Our homework for this week is to have a go at writing a verse for a ‘hasn’t 2016 been a strange & bonkers & sad year’ version of “No More Heroes” – when you’ve nailed it send it in to info@coolhandukes.co.uk & we can play it at our Christmas party.

Speaking of which an important change of date for everyone. We agreed, as our new home was now available, to move our Christmas Party back to our proper Wednesday…so it is now on 14 December from 7.00pm!! Jason has finished collating some brilliant song suggestions & had made our Christmas book – attached here. Please print & bring along. Thanks to everyone who committed to bring stuff on the food list. If you didn’t write something down, please do bring something along to our communal feast!

Finally, for those of us making props for “Dedicated Follower” we agreed to try to have them ready to bring along to the Christmas party for the first run through in all it’s glory!

Enough from me…have a fantastic fortnight & see you for some Christmas cheer.

X Abi
