Anarchic, funny, and mind bogglingly versatile, this virtuosic “orchestra” has sixteen-handedly changed the face of the ukulele world, taking on and transforming iconic works from Beethoven to The Who to Isaac Hayes. As the players themselves put it: “You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll never think about music in the same way… it’s just one plucking thing after another.” But don’t take their word for it; The New York Times says “there are lots of yuks in ukes: physical comedy, pun-filled banter between songs and stacks of fleeting musical allusions within each piece keep the orchestra’s show lively.”
Bring a uke and join the Orchestra for a song! Details to come.
