Full Spoon

Our first BUF was held in 2017. The day was a fun-filled musical event with participation by people of all ages. In the spirit of inclusion, we encourage amateurs to take the stage as well as hosting professional acts who can inspire and encourage others. Our fun and colourful "tropical" them remains but this year we are adding a little extra twist by inviting artists to perform at least one ELVIS tune in their act. Elvis had a connection to the ukulele in his 1961 movie "Blue Hawaii" so why not throw into the BUF mix the most magnificent musician the planet has ever known!
