Dulwich Ukulele Club Christmas Ding Dong
Local 12 piece The Dulwich Ukulele Club are holding their annual Xmas knees up this year at the Forest Hill Tavern, 108 Forest Hill Road on Friday Dec 17th. Over past few years these parties have become notorious due to the bands selection of wonderfully eclectic and talented support acts, and this years promises to be no different.
"We played quite a few festivals this summer, and we've dragged along some of the best people we met" said Richard, the lead singer. The night will feature 3 supporting bands : Lewis Floyd Henry, a brilliant singer song writer and one man band with a tiny drum kit and echos of Jimi Hendrix on guitar, The Jolenes, an all girl blue grass band currently touring the women's prisons of Europe (watch out Johnny Cash!), and opening the night, local rock act Green Smoke - we think the youngest rock band in the UK, average age just 9 years old, like Black Sabbath, only really, really heavy.
The big event is of course The Dulwich Ukulele Clubs who are celebrating the release of their long awaited debut album. Recorded in an East Dulwich kitchen in a down-home style in one take, it captures the band at their very best and is a fitting tribute to this local act who have opened for the Beastie Boys, supported The Manic Street Preachers and shock up pop festival up and down the country over the past five years.
Tickets are £10, available from The Forest Hill Tavern, Hope and Greenwood on Northcross Road, or online by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, but hurry, because they sell out fast!
