Secret Lives of Ukulele

2 August 2020 $15 Members $20 Non-members $5 Students with ID
From out of the primordial swamps and fault lines of Otautahi-Christchurch The Secret Lives of Ukuleles bring you the future of ukuleles.
Nothing if not eclectic! The Secret Lives of Ukuleles play everything from Hank Williams to Kylie Minogue taking in Herman’s Hermits and The Buzzcocks along the way.
Built on their mix of choice covers mixed with fresh originals they have been spreading the
modern Uke craze from north of Amberley to the Lauder Uke Festival in Central Otago.
Regular busking gigs at the Lyttelton, Opawa, Sumner and Sydenham Markets plus guest spots at Uke and Folk Festivals, have given the band the opportunity to hone their performance skills and build an extensive repertoire of popular and catchy songs.
Yes, they have ukuleles and they’re not afraid to play them!
