Drummer / Percussionist wanted

Hi there.

We are a 30-odd piece fun lovin', ukulele group, based in Dublin 12, and we are looking for a drummer/percussionist, (when I say drummer, i don't mean a full kit, maybe a kick/snare/hat scenario or cajon..) or maybe a percussion set up.
It would probably suit someone who ain't on the circuit anymore, but would like to keep playing a bit.
I'll be upfront with you, there's no money in it, but there is tons of joy, satisfaction and genuine pleasure to be had, and we don't take ourselves too seriously.
The average age of the group is on the "mature side" and most of the members, up to a few years ago, never even knew what a ukulele was, much less played one.
We can be quite busy gigging throughout the year, and our gigs are mostly weekends, the majority during the summer.
We rehearse once a week, on Monday nights.
We do a lot of charity gigs (in and out on the streets of Dublin), Various festivals around the country, and we have played festivals in the UK.
Amongst this years gigs we've played, Braveheart 25 at Trim Castle, Daffodil day, Culture Night, and The Olympia Theatre, and we are already taking gigs for 2023, including a return to the Olympia, a spot at a major irish festival, and a weekender at a festival in the UK...
It wouldn't suit a beginner or learner, as we have quite a extensive and varied set ranging from Johnny Cash to Blur and a lot inbetween. We're not looking for a Gene Krupa, Keith Moon, or Taylor Hawkins, but if you're handy enough it would help.

If this sounds interesting to you, give me a shout here or call me at 087 7948712and I can fill you in with further details.
