For the past decade, Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra has been getting concertgoers off their feet and dancing the night away to its eclectic mix of ukulele-driven tunes. The New Zealand-based group’s repertoire is comprised of classic ukulele standards and pop hits reworked into upbeat singalongs. They’ve covered everything from Outkast’s “Hey Ya” and Pharrell’s “Happy” to Toto’s “Africa”and Cream’s “Sunshine Of Your Love”. Each song boasts beautifully layered vocal harmonies and toe tapping melodies, capped off by comical banter between them which reveals a contagious enthusiasm for music.
The Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra is the best at what they do, and now you can see them live on their Be Mine Tonight Album Release Tour! They will pay tribute to some of New Zealand’s finest artists in a way only this group knows how. From Dunedin starting November 8th all the way up north ending December 5th with two very special nights for those who are able to make it out there!
