Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra

Last season, their onstage energy nearly tore the roof off of The American Theatre. This season, they’ll return to finish the job! Hailing from the home of The Hobbit movies and sharing DNA with Flight of the Conchords, New Zealand entertainment powerhouse The Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra are in hot demand worldwide for their winning combination of charming humour, disarmingly small ukuleles, and sublime musicality.

The band’s repertoire is a superbly eclectic curation of songs appropriated from many genres alongside tunes from the South Pacific, all packaged into a spectacular, unmissable funfest. Expect to hear fantastic “ukulelefied” versions of rock and pop classics by the likes of Justin Timberlake, Dolly Parton, Cyndi Lauper, Blondie, Salt n Pepa and much, much more.

The band’s number one rule is: “If you know the words, sing along. If you don’t know the words, sing along!”
