The Nukes (NZ) in concert for Metro Social Blue Mountains
Gang Gang Street Corner of Lurline Street, Katoomba, NSW, 2780, Australia
11th November 2017
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. This 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.
