We went to the BUMS Ukulele Cabaret last Friday at the Coorparoo Bowls Club, dragged along as friends of the organiser.

What a complete surprise! I expected an evening of amateurs strumming away but was blown away by the high quality, variety and professionalism of the evening’s performances.

The evening started off with a few drinks in the downstairs bar where we were serenaded by Donna and Derek playing catchy jazz numbers as a welcoming appetiser for the evening. Then it was upstairs to the festively decorated Tiki Bar for the main course. A basic supper of nibbles, burgers and quiche helped to wash down the wine and beer from the bar.
