Re: Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra

I sure am, and yes I will be at the gig on Sunday! I imagine it's gonna be a good night, lots of people and dancing. FUN.

Re: Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra

Sorry, a little unrelated, but funny you should post David St George pics, as one of his latest updates is of a wedding shoot he did here in Wellington. Cassandra Snow, an old WTFer got married and he was the wedding photographer. I was lucky enough to go along, and the pictures are beautiful. He is...

Re: Age Pryor

Yep, you got it! She contributed a few songs to WS album...'Only Your Arms' is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. Argh, just gorgeous. I've been to many of their shows, and a couple of times the guys are like "Yeah, Jess sings that song, and we all stand here, playing our instrume...

Re: Age Pryor

Haha I thought so too, Ali! I quite enjoy the foreground and background subjects ;) But yes, Alison's right...since discovering them, I've become enamoured with Justin Firefly and Jess Chambers. They are both SO incredibly talented, and when they harmonise together it makes me want to cry! Her album...

Re: Age Pryor

So, I'm back again for another sporadic visit!! Yeeeeah! Nice one, Alison. You're right this thread is way overdue! Age's newest project The Woolshed Sessions is one of my faves at the moment. They're pretty awesome! Have any of you guys heard of them? http://i593.photobucket.com/albums/tt15/the7mus...

Re: Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra

Sorry, it's been ages. The shows were both fantastic. I was lucky enough to be front row centre with Katie (yeah, it was very surreal...there were times when we were both like "What the s***!? When did this become my life, seeing the WIUO with KATIE?!"). I don't really know what else to sa...

Re: Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra

Hey, Beck. Lucky you who get to see them live :D You play the uke, right? What kind would you recommend for a beginner? Most people start out with a Mahalo/Makala. They're cheap (and also not thaaaat great in general), but they serve their purpose well - acting as somewhat of a musical stepping sto...

Re: Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra

Popping back AGAIN! My visits are becoming rather random, aren't they. As some of you may know, the Orchestra are playing at the end of this month, like...a mid-winter sort of giggity-goo. Anyway, I managed to get tickets to the show, pretty good seats. It was announced the other day that there has ...

Re: Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra

There are pictures on her Facebook page of her playing on stage with Age. I am still in awe of those pictures! Aren't they so great? I love how Beck is just beaming away in all of them. Beck, you are ridiculously cute, do you know that? In my next life, I'm coming back as you. No joke. I'm assuming...

Re: Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra

Lovely uke! Gorgeous. He's a bit naughty. Does he have a name yet? I love your sexy-scale question. The answer....he's off the freakin' charts. Seriously. This one time at (band camp) the WIUO Winter Workshop, he sat next to me, and made a point of saying hello....to ME! Like, he said a general hell...

Re: Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra

Oh my god. BECK! Want to hear something massively creepy? You don't know me, but I'm, like, your biggest fan, maaaaan . Ooooh, I feel all bashful and shy now! I've only started commenting recently, but I've been reading the board for yonks and having totally odd, one-sided friendships with you and ...
