D’Ukes 9:30pm

There are not many bands that feature musicians all playing the same instruments. But D’Ukes manage to sing and play music by artistes as diverse as Amy Winehouse, Johnny Cash, Elbow, Beatles, Disney and Led Zeppelin on different types of ukulele with a hint of percussion! As D’Ukes say “If it’s a good song we will take it apart, rebuild it and uke it up”.

Formed out of a regular ukulele pub jam session in Chelmsford in 2009, D’Ukes draw on the diverse experience of enthusiastic ukulele players from across the Essex region including Chelmsford, Romford, Hornchurch and Colchester. They are now a highly sought after ukulele band specialising in electric, danceable music with great vocals, slick solos, tight harmonies, excellent song arrangements and a repertoire that keeps the audience wondering what’s coming next!
