The Rev Hank Trio will be playing Sat, Mar. 23 at the Trellis Cafe in Hubbards, NS from 7:70-9:30PM. This is a great little restaurant with a cool vibe, and the show is FREE. Here’s a bit about the trio:
And now for something completely different! You’ve never heard the ukelele played to such swinging effect.
The Rev Hank Trio transports the diminutive ukelele from its home waters of Tahiti to the speak-easies of Storyville, Harlem and South Chicago, turning the once again popular ukulele into a 4-string swing machine.
The Rev Hank Trio features Andrew Beazley on Ukulele Bass, Frank den Haan on suitcase, and ukelele master Mike Diabo on lead “Uke”. The band’s repertoire includes standards & not so standards from Jerome Kearns & Duke Ellington to Thelonius Monk & Ornette Coleman.

OK, here’s the 40 Scorned Uke idea. We meet at the intersection of Barrington & Blowers at 8PM on Sat, Oct 13, and play Rock Me Gently in the middle of the intersection (the cars can wait for 2 minutes). I’ll start the strumming and we all join in coming from different corners. This won’t work without a bunch of us. Who’s in for real?
Due to the first Monday of the month being Labour Day, we will instead be meeting on Monday, September 10 – usual time, usual place
7-9 pm at the Celtic Corner
Hope to see you there!
