It's now one of the "coolest and trendiest" instruments
Hi, we are a duo called The Ukaye Ukes.
We have been performing at various functions, venues and events around the country including
a theatre tour supporting UK Soul Legend Geno Washington.
We released our first CD “BlueSkies” on Zango Records in March 2011
And supported the reformed Dire Straits (The Straits) at the Royal Albert Hall.
We've enjoyed a great reaction while playing Social Clubs, Pubs, Private parties, Golf Club functions, Theatres and Charity Events.
We play music from all eras, (see Song List page) from contemporary artists like, Elbow, Oasis, Sting, Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell etc., some Motown and great 50's and 60's Classic Rock and Roll, the great standards of yesteryear and even some of our own compositions.
As multi instrumentalists we have recorded our own backing tracks and with our electric/acoustic ukes we can achieve a
"full band" live sound.
“Those guys were the perfect opening act on my tour. They smashed it every night with their sing along, good time music” ..............Geno Washington (UK Soul Legend)
“What a fantastic act! You've bought a new dimension to the Ukulele, love your unique and clever song choices” ..........Brian May (Queen legend)
“The Ukaye Ukes debuted at Morts and proved to everybody beyond doubt that the ukulele is a formidable instrument
– a full dance floor and everyone singing along – they will definitely be coming back soon”.
..........Nigel Mort (Morts Wine Bar, Walton-on-Thames)
