The Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra, I ♥ you

Filed under "things New Zealand has done to me" part......, is a great love of the ukulele. I'm a proud uke-owner, if not an accomplished player, and one of the great reasons for this was  some Kiwi friends introducing me to the Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra. They are all kinds of awesome. One live gig is all it takes to get you hooked. Check this and this out. Last night we got to see them live again, as their I Love You EP tour hit town and they were as brilliant as ever. It was also fun to see the people next me go from novices to asking when they were playing next. I forgot to take a 'proper' camera, hence the wobbly pictures, but it's the type of gig where you're too busy bopping along to care. Now I just need to practise the uke myself...
