Rex Stokes is now at peace after a six month struggle with cancer. A dozen members represented SPUKES at his funeral by playing and singing ‘You Are My Sunshine’ at the service.
There are only a handful of ukulele luthiers in Australia and they all come from a musical background. Chris Dovey of Rosebud came to music and SPUKES through his skills in fine woodworking.
During the summer season some of our members were looking for colourful clothes for our performances. We’ve had good reports on shirts from Island Style Clothing, an online store based in Twin Waters on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.
There was plenty of colour added to an excellent performance by 38 of our players at Ti Tree Lodge. Nearly everyone followed the dress code and sported Hawaiian or tropical garb along with leis and appropriate hats!
