Ver Players wish everyone a Happy Christmas and New Year!
We’ve had a lot of fun in the last few weeks playing the festive favourites along with less familiar songs and carols, accompanied by a host of ukulele players.
Here’s a flavour of what we’ve been up to from our final sing-along at the lovely Courtyard Café.
10th December – 7pm at the Hare & Hounds
14th December – 5.15pm in the Tipi at the Christmas Market next to the Abbey
23rd December – Noon at the Courtyard Café
Our impromptu version of ‘Kiss’ by Prince, at our April practise session. We’ll do a few more of his songs at our regular get-together at the Hare & Hounds on 8th May (see events top right).
Ver Players is open to all ukulele players, from beginners to expert!
Have a look at the events calendar on the right to find out when our next get together is…
We meet 7pm on the Second Sunday every month at
The Hare & Hounds in St Albans.
We also have informal practise sessions normally in the back-room at
The Courtyard Cafe on Hatfield Road. To join us, take a look at the membership page.
Both events are free, though we will be collecting money for Open Door – St Albans Homeless Night Shelter

Singing “Calm after the storm” by The Common Linnets, in the Courtyard Cafe. Good practise – two songs in two hours!
Practise at the Courtyard Café, August 2014
‘She’s not there’ is 50! The song was first played by Rod Argent to the rest of The Zombies on 29th April 1964 at the Market Hall, St Albans. It went on to reach No 12 in the UK singles charts, and became their biggest hit.
On Saturday 3rd May 2014, we marked this anniversary by playing the song, on around 20 ukuleles at the Courtyard Café on Hatfield Road, just a stones throw from The Blacksmith’s Arms where the The Zombies first met.
