Due to the success of our first ukulele night, Surf World Gold Coast is happy to announce a second ukulele night entitled ‘A 100 years of Ukuleles’. Kicking off at 5pm Thursday 4 June, the event will feature live entertainment from the Coolangatta Ukulele Club who will be greeting guests as they arrive, and also a solo performance from one of the leading ukulele players on the Gold Coast, Chad Sheather. Chad was a sensation at our original Ukulele night with his impressive skills, and due to demand he is back again to the delight of guests and will also be accompanied by an electric bass player and a lead vocalist.
The ukulele exhibition that is currently on at Surf World Gold Coast will be on display for guests along with the vast collection of historic boards that feature throughout the museum. The ukulele exhibition consists of early Portuguese and Hawaiian models dating back to 1915, to modern and present day Hawaiian and U.S. models. It is a vast display and consists of rare and wonderful pieces that few would have experienced. The surf film, Hawaiian: The Legend of Eddie Aikau, will also be shown on the evening. This insightful documentary features the life and times of Eddie Aikau, the iconic Hawaiian waterman best known for the namesake big wave event held in his honor at Waimea Bay and the even more iconic bumper sticker ’Eddie Would Go’. It is a must see film for anyone who’s remotely interested in surfing, Hawaiian history, or documentaries in general.
There will also be a BBQ with beer,wine and soft drink available. This is an all ages event, and only a limited number of tickets are available, so get in quick to secure your spot for what is sure to be a terrific evening.
