Playing for scallops

rye-bay-scallop-week

Tuesday night at the Queens took on a distinctly fishy feeling this week.  We were delighted to be able to join in with the Rye Scallop Festival and added to our usual repertoire a dozen or so sea-themed songs in keeping with the evening.

Amongst the players were the full Ukulele Orchestra and several first time performers.  During the evening there were also special spots from the ‘Au Reservoir’ Jazz trio, The Ukulele Ladies, Ali Catt and Bob and the Good Ole Boys.  See pics below courtesy of Geoff Kempson and Kevin Hall.

Thanks to Jon and his team at the Queens Head for the yummy scallops and thanks also to the brilliant support from our audience and their generosity towards St Michael’s Hospice when the hat went round.

Rye Bay Scallop Week 20th – 28th February

rye-bay-scallop-weekAnother load of scallops rolls around again.  It doesn’t seem a year!

To celebrate 2016 the Rye Ukulele Experiment will be performing their famous fish themed set list (well fish, beach, seaside, water – anything we can think of really) at the Queens Head in Rye on Tuesday 23rd February 2016.   There will also be special ‘spots’ throughout the evening for Ali Catt & Co, Bob and the good old boys, Au Reservoir and the Ukulele Ladies.

We will kick off at 7.30pm with all welcome to pop in and listen.  Jonathan will also be serving some scallop/fishy themed nibbles during the evening to get us in the mood.  As the local saying goes – It’s shucking time again!
