The Buskuleles of Usk Third Birthday

The Buskuleles celebrated their 3rd birthday this month.  John was delighted to cut the ukulele shaped cake, Carol had made for us, in our rehearsal break this evening.  It is amazing to think that most of the band had little or no musical instrument or performance experience before joining the band.  With John's patience and enthusiasm we have all come a long way.

The twice weekly rehearsals are full of fun and friendship and although many of the band still get nervous before a performance watching the audience sing and dance to the music we make is so rewarding the nerves usually disappear after the first couple of songs!
