SATURDAY NIGHT’S ENTERTAINMENT
The entertainment at the Saturday night banquet will feature the Langley Ukulele Ensemble. The group are currently celebrating their 35th Anniversary. The ensemble is internationally renowned and considered to be one of the top ukulele performing ensembles in the world. They were prominently featured in the 2008 award-winning document film, The Mighty Uke. The group is composed of 20 musicians, aged twelve to eighteen years, who perform 50-80 concerts a year. They have performed in Canada, Florida, Texas, California, Nevada, the Pacific Northwest, Japan and Hawaii. The ensemble was named Langley’s Entertainer of the Year for 2005. The ensemble has performed at many Rotary events including Rotary International Conventions in San Antonio, Los Angeles and New Orleans. If you have never heard the William Tell Overture (think Lone Ranger) or Chuck Berry’s “Jonny B. Goode” played on a ukulele you are in for a treat.
