Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2005
A funny, virtuosic, singing, twanging, awesome, foot-stomping obituary of rock-n-roll and melodious light entertainment.
Just seen them and they blew the whole family away. My 8 and 11 year old kids were speechless and bounced all the way home. The best thing I've seen on the fringe and a witty, surprising and heart warming experience. It's not like anything you'll have seen before and you'll be evangelical once you've seen them. Simply genius
They received a deserved standing ovation at the end of this imaginative and inspiring show. My friends thanked me for getting them to go and see the show (and they had Pleasance passes, so it was free anyway!). The Ukulele Orchestra can play, but they're also smart enough to surprise you. "Leaning on a Lampost" has never sounded so good, and their encore piece - 7-songs-in-one is a classic musical trick, but was pulled off with skill and class
You'll never believe it unless you see it. Ukulele's played by a bunch of bizarrely talented folk, playing tunes you think you've heard before, but never like this! You'll laugh and you'll wonder what life was like before you saw them
