Talented musicians with astounding versatility
WHAT a fantastic show! I started smiling when the musicians came on stage and didn't stop until hours after the end.
I couldn't have imagined how the Ukulele's of Dave Suich, Peter Brooke Turner, Hester Goodman, George Hinchliffe, Richie Williams, Kitty Lux, Will Grove-White and Jonty Bankes would fill the hall in such an impressive fashion.
Not just a bunch of uke enthusiasts, these are incredibly talented musicians. Although much of the show is "tongue in cheek" – with plenty of humour thrown in which mostly pokes fun at themselves – their versatility was astounding.
The second song of the night was Hawkwind's Silver Machine, followed by deliciously deadpan deliveries of songs like the Sex Pistol's Anarchy in the UK, Grace Jones's Slave to the Rhythm and Ian Dury's Sex and Drugs and Rock 'n Roll (Cakes and buns and sausage rolls) which came thick and fast. Possibly my favourite was Bowie's Life on Mars, overlaid with My Way, Born Free and For Once In My Life.

Having said that, there were no low points.
The "Uke's" managed to play songs that I have always disliked in such a way that I loved everything they did.
The second half began with The Good The Bad and The Ugly and was followed up with Lady Gaga's Born This Way.
The laughs continued all night.
Teenage Dirtbag (Wheatus) and Kate Bush's Wuthering Heights in a sort of swing/jazz style were both met with huge applause.
And with lots of clever tricks thrown into the mix, no-one wanted the show to end.
But two encore's later it was all over. Saluting the crowd with ukulele's held aloft, the Uke's were gone.
Let's hope they come back soon.
And when they do, make sure you get a ticket.
