The Nukes NZ Ukulele Trio -Album Release Tour with support from Melbourne's own Thin White Ukes
Showtime 8pm

Kiwi Chart Topping Originality – ‘ Ukulele will never be the same again ‘

The Nukes from West Auckland, NZ are far more than a ukulele band. Part vaudeville, part rat-pack, part musical car crash, this talented trio deliver an engaging mix of humour and originality in equal measure. Great song writing, three-part harmony and blistering riffs create a riveting audience experience loved by all ages.

The innocent little uke is the instrument of choice and folk will be staggered by what they are able achieve with it. Originally formed at the 2008 Titirangi Festival of Music, the band – Dave Parker, David ‘Snapper’ Thiele and Ben Collier – love to share their quirky brand of musical brilliance, coaxing a fine blend of folk, bluegrass, reggae and post punk out of their innocent little ukuleles.

The Nukes III album recently spent six weeks on the NZ album chart top ten as well as being in the overall top 40 album chart for two weeks peaking at number 31. It topped the Independent NZ music charts for two weeks and has since seen the band tour all over NZ from Kaitaia in the Far North to Rakiura ( Stewart Island ) in the deep South and so much in between – over sixty shows, many sell outs, and attendance records broken around NZ.

This November 2017 visit to Australia will be the band’s fourth visit in the last five years having headlined and performed at a number of ukulele festivals from Melbourne to Newcastle, Central Coast to Brisbane

The Thin White Ukes have forged a unique path through the labyrinth of the David Bowie songbook since 2014, armed with just 12 small strings, a wall of heart-stopping harmony and eye-watering attention to detail. From Space Oddity to Blackstar, big hits and deep cuts, the glamorously attired acoustic trio has coaxed tears and laughter from spellbound crowds from the Melbourne Recital Centre to the Brisbane Powerhouse. Put on your red shoes. They’ll be floating in a most peculiar way
