‘Worth travelling a thousand miles to hear' Independent

The cult orchestra of all-singing, all-strumming ukulele players returns to Cambridge with their own unique brand of live entertainment!

A concert by the Ukulele Orchestra is guaranteed to be a funny, virtuosic, twanging, awesome, foot-stomping obituary of rock ‘n' roll and melodious light entertainment, featuring only ukuleles - little ones, big ones, high ones, low ones, with not a twang incongruous - alongside a menagerie of voices in a collision of post-punk performance and toe-tapping oldies. No guitars, no drums, no pianos, no backing tracks. And certainly no banjos.

No style is sacred, no genre untouchable - from Tchaikovsky to Nirvana via Otis Reading, the Orchestra take you on a world tour with only hand luggage.

You may never think about music in the same way once you've been exposed to the Ukes' depraved musicology!

‘The best musical entertainment in the country' Independent
