The spirit of Open Mike nights past

Last week was open mike night at the club.  Open mike night is at the heart of the Ukulele club.  One can participate in one or three categories: as a Rookie, ‘been there-done that’, or Pro.  All get up in front of their ‘ukulele friends’ and give it there best.  Rookies are almost always the ones who receive a standing ovation.

Club members are quite eclectic often playing more than one instrument and teaming up to play together in different combinations.

In the clip below, shot on an open mike night in 2005, Topher Gayle (who plays bass in the band Uke Be A Lady with Jayme Kelly Curtis and Autumn Hancock) teams up here with Lisa Burns. Lisa is on bass and Topher on uke.
