Thursday June 13th:
The wedding next week. Let’s knock ‘em dead with lots more Ukeaholics Showstoppers. See you all Thursday.
The set list will be THE WEDDING SONGS IN A SERIOUS MODE.
Looking forward to the gig on Saturday but as Stan has mentioned in his email, on Thursday at the Wheatsheaf we should
focus on the wedding set list to ensure our performance is spot on.
Thursday 2nd May:
After a familiar song to warm up, it will be helpful if we practise some of the songs listed in my email, in particular, the Cockney medley. Steve and I will bring folders to both the gig and the Thursday night
Thursday 25th April:
Any suggestions for a setlist for tonight?
See set list sent by Chris in preparation for our surprise birthday 'girl'!
Thursday 21st March:
from Stan's list last week, to go towards a sing along set to be used at Windmill House and similar venues, I have been thinking along the same lines for a while and have gathered seven more songs of the same era to have a go at this week. (see below).
A few more songs needed from our repertoire, (not necessarily oldies like these) to complete the evening. Suggestions please, or perhaps practice again some of the new ones from last week.
- If You Were The Only Girl In The World
- By the Light of the Silvery Moon
- Cockney Melody
- Singing In The Rain
- Moonlight Bay
- Bye Bye Blackbird-Side by Side
Thursday 14th March:
the list of songs for Thursday, a good few oldies that I thought could be used to make up our own 'Oldie Medley'.

Here is a setlist for Thursday’s session at the wheatsheaf, a few new ones, some old ones and some recent ones that others have suggested.
Hope its okay. The music is emailed.
Thursday 28th February:
A song to try on Thursday:
'Hold on Tight' by ELO
...along with the extended version of 'Picture of You' prepared by Richard, and emailed by Joe.
My suggestion is to steer clear of anything we have practiced to death recently or played in the gigs, apart from the extended version of 'Picture of You', and to have a complete change of music this
week. Old favourites or new suggestions 'a-la' Chris B. Good tune Chris, I take it that as a seasoned European traveller, you will be singing the French verse solo!
Matt's suggestions are:
Meet me at the Station (Rev ‘Blind’ Gary Davies/ arr The Waterboys)
Adventures of a Lifetime (Coldplay)
Thursday 21st February:
A request from Chris to run through a few intros and endings
ready for the next gig, and to practice 'Happy Birthday', 'Bill Bailey' and 'Combine Harvester'.
