The Nukes - Aotearoa’s/NZ’s most beloved and enduring ‘original ukulele trio’.
On the road again for Labour Weekend on the Coromandel in the topsy-turvy year that is 2020, bringing joy and harmony to all they encounter.
Friday October 23rd returning to Thames for a special workshop session from 6.15 pm followed by a full concert show from 8 pm. Ltd tickets from the venue and here on Eventfinda.
Workshop: informative and practical with something for everyone as participants learn how to play and perform some of the new songs in the band’s repertoire. A little bit of experience will be of value, though even beginners should have some tips to take away with them.
Nuke’s workshops are always fun, inclusive and engaging- (just like their shows) and participants will be taking away with them workshop resources to help them apply their new knowledge to their playing. Great value we say!
In their show they’ll be playing some old favourites from their back catalogue, such as ‘Lemon-tree’ and ‘Island Queen’ (and perhaps the odd request from the audience), plus a swag of new songs to introduce to fans around the country.
The Nukes are one of Australasia’s most successful ukulele/ folk acts with more than 10 years under their belts and 3 compelling albums as proof of their creative endeavours (and well in excess of 100,000 streams and views). Don’t duck and cover, don’t try and be a hero…just gather all your friends and head for ground zero.
