Grandpa Uke entertaining "Live" at Nex Serangoon, Sunday 24 April 2011
Unk Dicko and his partner R C will again be entertaining at NTUC Hypermart
at Nex Serangoon on Sunday 24 April 2011 from 2 pm to 5 pm.
Yes...3 solid hours of good ole' ukulele music that is guaranteed to bring back fond memories of the yesteryears.
Grandpa Uke are in reality 2 real grandpas who have been performing publicly and privately for many years since the 90's.
We have a wide repertoire of songs in our extensive collection. We'll be playing and singing a wide cross-section of songs that will include hits of the 50's, 60's, 70's , popular favourites, kiddie songs, funny songs, songs from movies, some jazz pieces, calypso hits, keroncong tunes...and more.
Many members of the public have asked Unk Dicko when and where the next performance is going to be.
Well, if you're free, do come on down to NTUC Hypermart at Level 3 Nex Serangoon.
I understand there is much that is happening there on Sunday being the Easter weekend.
Our last performance there was on the night of Tuesday 29 March as shown in the photos below.
The next day, the store management told me that many of their customers and visitors gave very positive feedback about our stint. They wanted to know if we're coming back!
So...yes, we'll certainly be there again on Sunday !
If you are interested in the ukulele, don't miss this.
If you are a ukulele player and want to pick up some tips for improvement...do come.
If you like those songs of the good ole days...think no more, just come!
