The Nukes - Aotearoa’s/NZ’s most beloved and enduring "original ukulele trio".
On the road again in the topsy-turvy year that is 2020, bringing joy and harmony to all they encounter.
First up, a couple of rare Auckland appearances Saturday October 3rd at Grey Lynn’s gorgeous little wine bar Frieda Margolis.
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.
The Nukes have appeared at Womad NZ , Splore , Auckland and Canterbury Folk Festivals , Oamaru Heritage Festival, New Plymouth Festival Of Light, Wanaka Festival Of Colour, Coastella Festival , The Taranaki, Southland and Hawkes Bay Arts Festivals, Bluff Oyster Festival and a successful nationwide Arts On Tour NZ March 2017, They have also toured extensively in Australia.
"seriously good musicians foot tapping riffsomic and engaging with vocals so clear a deaf man could forget his hearing aids and still have a ball." - Sam Edwards, Waikato Times, February 14th 2020
