The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain
Deadpan musical humor and spot-on interpretations of film scores, pop classics and more.
“Unabashed genre crashing antics. Nothing is spoof proof.” —Sunday Times, London
What began 30 years ago as “a bit of fun” has since kept this “plucky” orchestra entertaining audiences worldwide. Enjoying outsized success playing pint-sized instruments, the “Ukes” cross genres and upend expectations with toe-tapping disarm. You’ll want to be in the audience when they come marching in, sporting their deadpan British humor and spot-on musical interpretations of film scores and avant pop classics from Ennio Morricone to Nirvana.
Strum along with The Ukes!
