World Record Ukulele Attempt (With a Difference)

Now before you click away from this post. I KNOW that ukulele world record attempts are nothing new. In fact it seemed for some time recently they happened somewhere each year without fail....


STOP PRESS!!! ROBIN MADE IT - IN FACT HE SMASHED THE WORLD RECORD AND SET A NEW ONE AT OVER 30 HOURS!


But as I say in the title - this one is a quite different, and really caught my eye. Top ukulele performer and friend over on the UK circuit, Robin (he, the lover of Earl Grey Tea, lover of rap, lover of the bow tie and occasionally the the lover of a sweary tune) is having a go at one himself. And no, this isn't just another 'how many ukulele players can we get at the same time' attempt. This one is SOLO. And looking at it, it's also rather scary. (Click the image below for a bigger version with all the details!)

On 26 November, Robin will be attempting to play a continuous ukulele set for 30 HOURS (yes 30!) at the famous Duke Of Uke store in London. I don't even know how that is possible, but then, that's World Records for you! The current record is 25 hours, and Robin hopes to smash it. And I thought gigging for a couple of hours was tough!

The event is being produced by Team #GNUF (Grand Northern Ukulele Festival) and sponsored by KoAloha Ukuleles. I also understand that there will be some KoAloha goodies to win if you attend.

See the pic for details, or head to his Facebook event page to show your support. Added to which it's FREE to attend. Go give him your support (or strong coffee!)

Pop along to Duke Of Uke at 88 Cheshire Street, London, E2 6EH from 11am on 26 November right through to 5pm on the 27th. This should be fun!
