Pig’s Can’t Fly, Pigs Can’t Swim, Wild Boar, Little Piggies and much, much more………………
What a great night at the Queens. Piggy themed songs, toy boars and little honking toys (or was that just Ken?) we turned the pub into pig paradise. Thanks to Jon and his staff for the baby Boar burgers and other tasty treats too.
It was good to get all the newer members along to join in, sorry you got sat at the back guys. Good too to give the various offshoots of the Rye Ukulele Experiment an opportunity to perform their specialities.
Ali Catt performed some superb solos, the Ukulele Ladies – with Justine, Pam and Heidi harmonised perfectly.
Mrs Hall’s Boys thrashed out some joyful jazz and Bob and the Good Old boys – featuring Bob Page finished off the evening with their own style of rock.
And last but not least we raised a lovely sum of money for the St Michael’s Hospice fund – so massive thanks to all.

We are all geared up for a great Piggy Performance on Tuesday 27th October at the Queens Head, Landgate, Rye. We’ll be kicking off at 7.30pm and the really exciting thing is that we have a number of new members looking forward to performing for the first time. Come along and support them please.
Our set will include all the usual favourites sprinkled with some Piggy themed songs and we will, of course, include our famous ‘Wild Boar’ number. Look out for specials from Mrs Hall’s Boys, The Ukulele Ladies, Ali Catt and not forgetting Bob’s good old boys.
It should be a good night.
Have the Rye Ukulele Orchestra invented a new pastime?
Following the Camber Fun Day we decided to unwind with a glass of wine or two at the farm and try out a possible sound system in the garden (where no-one could hear us). Well it seems the microphone is a bit addictive and certain people (they know who they are) were very keen and had a fine time playing and singing the rest of the afternoon away.

THANKS GUYS FOR A GREAT AFTERNOON.
This year’s Maritime Festival was a perfect afternoon. Bright blue skies, hot sunshine, a waterside venue and our own little camp where we set up a bar and picnic to keep us going through the afternoon.
The Orchestra played their usual toe-tapping sets but, for the first time, we were pleased to introduce three new feature sections from the Ukuladies, Ali Catt & Co and Mrs Hall’s Buoys.

Our thanks go to all who supported us by throwing money in the St Michael’s Hospice bucket. We raised a considerable sum of money – yet to be confirmed. We’re also grateful to all those who stopped to listen and gave us such great rounds of applause. Lastly thanks to the organisers for such a wonderful event.
