The Nukes. Aotearoa’s/NZ’s most beloved and enduring "original ukulele trio".
For more than 10 years this unlikely league of musical miscreants has traipsed around Australasia, bringing joy and harmony to all they encounter.
At the helm is Dave Parker, inveigling with a sparkling voice and a compelling custom uke sound that commands respect.
Swabbing the decks is new recruit ‘ The Curious’ percussionist ‘mysterious’ Mike Burrows (who also packs a spry falsetto) while the audacious slide ukulele and wry humour of Ben Collier keep the whole shebang on an even keel.
It’s original, inventive , quirky and Kiwi.

The Nukes the tightest trio with the loosest sound – because they are seriously good musicians – know exactly what three ukuleles can do. Vocals so clear a deaf man could forget his hearing aids and still have a ball , the four tiny strings on the ukes producing the familiar strum before morphing into foot tapping riffs and accompanying moody, comic , engaging vocals .This full house of listeners was as engaged and enthusiastic as it gets .Mike Burrows percussion, vocals , uke even turned up with a pate – that wee island foot long canoe that one beats with a stick , to come up with the unique performance of the night . This was a night to savour
