New COVID venues of concern Lismore and Coraki

Following a second case being identified in Lismore, that is no longer in the area, several more COVID contact venues have been identified.

Now hailing from Mullumbimby, ex-Sydney drummer Stu Eadie (Karma County, Whitlams, Clouds) was converted to the uke when given a half-decent Samich Concert for Fathers Day a few years back.

After teaching for a time, the need for a monthly uke night became apparent. The first Uke Mullum meet back in July 2011 attracted around 130 people and Stukulele was born.

Miss Amber (Amber Weedon) was created to help lead the female tunes at Uke Night and is now very popular for her sweet tones and humble and honest delivery.

Uke Night at Mullum is now in its third year and has had an amazing run with people visiting from near and far.

Stukulele and Miss Amber have been finessing their act for festivals with some originals and sweet ol’ classics.

Stukulele-'n'-MissAmber_2014Now the pair are planning to record their work and they need a helping hand. Enter stage left – Pozible crowdfunding.

The plan is to crowdfund to get five tracks recorded and packaged as an EP in order to take it to the Melbourne Ukulele Festival in March this year.

‘This approach is good for 2 reason,’ says Stukulele.

‘Firstly, we will have a calling card to help us with further live engagements, and secondly, to give us the confidence and experience to complete phase two: the other six tracks.

‘We have three strong originals ready and two tasty covers that we intend to record with our co-hort Rod Coe on double bass with minimal overdubs. Keeping it simple and real.’

To this end they have been crowdfunding for a target of $3,000.

‘Every little bit helps and it’s not a charity,’ says Stu. ‘You can be one of the first to own our limited-edition debut EP, or there’re lessons, or you can hire us for you own private uke party.’

The deadline is Monday 3 February 2014 at 8.06am EST. This is where you go for more info and to pledge your support: http://pozible.com/stuamber.
