At You Ukes we believe that everyone can experience the joy of playing music. We know that the Ukulele is the perfect 'entry-level' instrument, it’s accessible, fun and perfect for anyone who wishes to explore their musical potential.

 

The Ukulele is the ideal community instrument, coming into its own when played 'en-masse', bringing enjoyment and smiles to everyone within earshot. We want everyone who wants to, to have the opportunity to enjoy and play this fun and engaging instrument.

Our Origins


You Ukes was founded in 2014 as a Birthday present for Shirley Wardell from her husband David Faraday. Shirley had recently started to learn the ukulele and she wanted to be in a band. The first step was to find some more uke-players, so the You Ukes Club was founded (See Get Surrey). In spring 2014, Shirley played her first gig with her husband and her new found 'ukulele-friends' from the You Ukes Club at the Bull's Head Cider Festival in Rake. More gigs followed: the Godalming Borough Hall, the Normandy Scouts, by early 2015 Shirley was ready. She approached the White Hart Pub in Farncombe and our regular Jamming Sessions started giving Shirley the chance to peform with her band on a regular basis.
