The ukulele orchestra of great britain - the secret of life


A concert by the Ukulele Orchestra is a funny, virtuosic, twanging, awesome, foot-stomping obituary of rock-n-roll and melodious light entertainment featuring only the “bonsai guitar” and a menagerie of voices in a collision of post-punk performance and toe-tapping oldies. There are no drums, pianos, backing tracks or banjos, no pitch shifters or electronic trickery. Only an astonishing revelation of the rich palette of orchestration afforded by ukuleles and singing (and a bit of whistling). Audiences have a good time with the Ukulele Orchestra. Going from Tchaikovsky to Nirvana via Otis Redding and Spaghetti Western soundtracks, the Orchestra takes us on “a world tour with only hand luggage” and gives the listener “One Plucking Thing After Another”.

“It all amounted to superbly tuneful fun. Performing on ukuleles ranging in size from a conventional soprano instrument to a tubby electric-bass model, the seven orchestra members on hand mixed instrumental panache and affable singing with no small amount of inimitably British drollery.” - The New York Times
