"Wonderful band. This has been the best night we've ever had here"

"The band was a tonic for everyone in the hall and watching you all seemed as if you were born for rhythm and music! We cannot thank you enough for adding so much to our night!"
The Porthcawl Ukulele Band started life as a club in 2009 and chose their name because the acronym of PUB seemed so fitting.
The PUB meets each Wednesday from 8 until late to play and sing at the Greenacre public house, North Cornelly. There are currently about 25 active members and new members of all abilities are welcome to join.
They also gig as a band on a regular basis, raising money for charitable causes and playing for functions both public and private, with a special rate for residential homes on a limited budget. As one customer recently said, "You really know how to get a party going".
They have appeared on Bridge FM and twice on the Roy Noble Show, BBC Radio Wales. They opened up for Gino Washington at Port Talbot's Princess Royal Theatre, have accompanied the late Stan Stennet and have played at the Wales Millennium Centre to welcome celebrities that included Rob Brydon, Wynne Evans, Peter Karrie and Boyd Clack.
Although still called the Porthcawl Ukulele Band, the club has attracted talented members from far beyond the bounds of Porthcawl allowing them to play tight arrangements featuring additional instruments and vocal harmonies whilst retaining the ukulele's essential 'fun' element
