of Great Britain

“Moderation in all things, Including Moderation!” The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain gives you more. They walk on stage and you are in safe hands. Bowie and Eno loved it. The BBC promoted it. The New York Times raved. From Tasmania to Svalbard the crowds become initiates. There’s music, irreverent wit and wicked fun transcending language and nationality; a requiem for rock and popular culture. Rebels: lasting longer than the Beatles and Led Zep, with more gigs than the Rolling Stones, funnier than the Berlin Philharmonic, rocking harder than Dwayne Johnson, the UOGB brings you “One Plucking Thing After Another”.
