Brockley Ukulele Group 100th Gig

Brockley Ukulele Group are playing their 100th gig tonight, at the Amersham Arms in New Cross. The SE London strummers started out early in 2008 with a drop-in session at Broca cafe, and played their first gig at the Telegraph Hill Centre in June 2008. I played with them for the first couple of years and had a lot of fun playing out at the Montague Arms, Hobgoblin, Jam Circus, Rivoli Ballroom, Shunt, and other venues. Ukeists have come and gone from the shifting collective that is BUG but one constant since late 2008 has been a monthly session at the Amersham Arms.
