They ensure a hilarious, virtuoso, breathtaking, and foot-stomping meeting of post-punk performance and unforgettable oldies—the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain performs with charm, wit, and ukulele. The London ensemble was founded in 1985 and has since proven with musical perfection that simply every piece of music in the world can be reinterpreted on the ukulele: pop, rock, punk, classical—every genre is represented. The UOGB combines music, British humor, and pop culture. The pompous and the trivial as well as the moving and amusing are satirized. The small instrument with the four strings can actually do everything—and it's particularly good at British, abysmal humor. This ensemble is characterized by fun paired with an almost unbelievable repertoire, an irrepressible joy of playing, and a fascinating range of musical innovations and sparkling humor.
Tickets are € 27-43.
