“Sheer fun and outright daffiness tied to first-rate musicality and comic timing.” The New York Times
“The sophisticated sound they make – both percussive and melodic – is at once hilarious and heartfelt.” Financial Times
From Sydney Opera House to Carnegie Hall, The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain has enchanted audiences the world over with its irresistible blend of wry humor and awe-inspiring musical prowess. Don’t be fooled by imitators: The all-singing, all-strumming ensemble is the original and best ukulele orchestra on the planet. With ukes small and large, in high and low registers, the group hailed as “wonderfully clever” by David Bowie deftly bounds from Tchaikovsky to Nirvana via Otis Redding with tongue firmly in cheek, raising eyebrows and defying expectations. Get ready for an evening of foot-stomping fun.
