On Saturday afternoon Coorparoo Bowls Club came to life with the sounds of the Ukulele Death Squad. Reuben, Julian, Eamon and Ben, the four members of the South Australian band, sang and played original and cover songs with their own unique style and shared their skills with percussive rhythms.

The band led two workshops. Skills taught were likened to tools that can be used to build variety and dynamics within a song. Everyone was involved immediately and enjoyed playing the different parts. Participants left equipped with new skills, some good ideas and with homework to practise. What a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon – well done, Ukulele Death Squad!
