Simply put, LUKE’S, contributes by way of music to encouraging people out of their normal lifestyle, indeed, sometimes, out of their chairs, playing familiar tunes, & wherever possible seeking audience participation, via singalongs, (if considered appropriate)
- hopefully overall, contributing to enjoyment, and personal wellbeing.
Our group encourage each other to explore this humble yet beautiful musical instrument and share musical knowledge through fun nights singing and playing as we bring our favourite songs to life!
Players of all ages are welcome!
Young or young at heart ......... doesn't matter as long as you love music.
We run beginner’s programs, workshops, programming periodical experienced Ukulele performers to encourage & lecture.
We operate periodical Try Out/Open Mic nights at Carrum for members and also on occasions at the Mentone RSL - any member can rise & sing, recite, play, stand up, etc., regardless of their ability to perform. Non -members can attend if they desire. Prior bookings are required. The essence of these nights is to "Have a go!"
Such an experience is liberating, especially for retired seniors.
We run a series of Theme Nights, where the majority of members really get in to the spirit of the evening, dress up and ham up.
in 2018 we ran an Irish Night, a 60s Night, a Halloween Night, a Remembrance Day Sing-a-long and a special Christmas Carols and Songs Spectacular held at the end of year Christmas Party. So far in 2019 we've had an Australian Theme Night, a Legends of Rock 'n Roll, a Celtic Night, a Country & Western Night and coming up are a Beatles Night and an Elvis Theme Night.
