Musicians from all backgrounds are invited to join in the festivities and share their ukulele knowledge as Lakelele returns to Lake Monduran.
Lakelele is now in its fourth year and continues to grow, attracting more than one hundred ukulele players from clubs all over Queensland to the Bundaberg Region.
Lakelele Inc secretary Janise Warner said ukuleles had become popular recently, not only because of their size, but also because musicians of any skill level could play them.
“Lakelele 22 welcomes musicians of all levels to participate in ukulele-based activities whilst showcasing beautiful Lake Monduran and the surrounding Bundaberg Region,” Janise said.
“Music will be celebrated in various ways, from skill-building, projector singalongs, solo performances and a fun rock and pop dress up night.
“We’re expecting Lakelele 2022 to be our best ever.”
Lakelele Inc continues to grow with support
Janise said to accommodate the growth of the past four years, the group decided to formalise the organisation.
“The committee members are passionate players coming from various ukulele clubs and get together regularly to help share the considerable workload involved in organising such an event,” she said.
“Becoming incorporated has had the added benefit of allowing us to seek financial assistance from Bundaberg Regional Council through the Community Services Program, for which we are humbly grateful.
“Our biggest expense presently is equipment hire costs and the Bundaberg Regional Council grant will go a long way towards alleviating that financial burden.”
Janise thanked Council for the assistance of $3,866 through the community grant program.
Council’s Community Services portfolio spokesperson Cr Tracey McPhee said Council was able to support local organisations and groups such as Lakelele Inc through the community grants program.
“Community grants provide support to local not-for-profit organisations to help them gain assistance in showcasing their events,” Cr McPhee said.
“Not-for-profit organisations and community groups do fantastic work in the Bundaberg Region.
“The community grants help to connect local residents with each other and their passions through these community groups.”
Lakelele 22 will be held at Lake Monduran on 2 to 4 September.
