The Nukes are far more than a ukulele band. They are high entertainment. Part vaudeville, part rat-pack, part musical car-crash, this talented trio deliver an engaging mix of humour and originality that audiences love.
All three artists are highly experienced musicians and original song-writers, who within a few years ago of being together have toured nationally, performed at A-list NZ festivals and recorded two albums.
The Nukes are:
David Parker – Tenor ukulele & vocals
David Thiele – Banjolele & vocals
Benjamin Collier – Tenor ukulele & vocals humour
“Original' inventive and entertaining. The performance skills, personality and banter between the musicians are excellent. There was overwhelming positive audience feedback from the concert (Spiegeltent-Taranaki Arts Festival ) and was one of the reasons I brought them back for WOMAD 2012.” - Drew James, Artistic Director WOMAD / Taranaki Arts Festival
“The Nukes are a unique, dynamic and inspiring three piece ukulele band that delights diverse audiences of all ages. They are outstanding musicians, great singers and precise harmonisers who add a comedic edge to their shows - the Nukes experience is uplifting, fun and feel.” - Taupo's Erupt Festival
