“Pop hits reworked into thrilling ukulele singalongs with comedic banter.” - New Zealand Herald
The wildly popular Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra is renowned for its winning combination of charming Kiwi humor, disarmingly small instruments, and sublime musicality—a joyful formula that’s in hot demand worldwide. Featuring 10 performers, the band’s onstage antics are legendary. Their comedic banter is spontaneous, and when they burst into song, the sweet sounds can silence a room in a nanosecond, or bring a crowd of thousands to its feet. The musical choices themselves—a canny selection of modern and traditional tunes—highlight the technical excellence and comic brilliance of the group. Expect to hear their take on Hall and Oates, Justin Timberlake, and Dolly Parton alongside tunes from the South Pacific and indie music legends like David Kilgour!Artist Website Video Photos
