Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain

One of the musical highlights of the year has to be the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain. Walking into a gig with the band members is a little different and so the tone of the whole event is set. Serious and gifted musicians all these performers approach it with fun and enthusiasm in abundance.

Their take on rock, punk, pop classics is captivating and invigorating. Their version of Lady Gagas "Born This Way" was just absolutely brilliant. Coupled with their versions of Born To Be Wild , Anarchy in The UK (with all the wrinklies joining in the chorus !!!), Smells Like a teenager, Good The Bad and The Ugly...... it made for a fanatstic evening. We look forward to the opportunity of seeing them again in the future.
