MAY 2, 2024 / 7:30 PM

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain has stumbled upon international and critical acclaim as the most entertaining pluckers. Dancing between sincerity and insanity; punk rock sensibilities and restrained British humor; the not-too-silly and the not-too-serious, a 37-year-long career has taken them to Carnegie Hall, Glastonbury Festival, the North Pole, and from China to Estonia via Japan, Australia and The Isle of Man, garnering hordes of fans and imitators along the way. Born of a rejection of convention and a penchant for reinterpretation, their catalog is a menagerie of rock, pop, jazz, blues, and classical music, performed with humor and a flair for toe-tapping, roof-raising, and often twisted renditions. With fans ranging from British royalty to David Bowie and beyond, the original Ukulele Orchestra are unmissable (and arguably inexcusable).
