We caught up with the boys before their various sets to see what one earth they're all about...
Who are you?
We are The Grand Old Ukes of Yorkshire. Sheffield's second favourite Ukulele band.
OK. So what do you actually do?
We play all your guilty pleasures, think TLC, Celine Dion, B*Witched, now think Ukulele, and
finally think Yorkshire and you'll be pretty near! We also run Team Building days which are great
fun! You can find out more about those at our website which is hidden within this sentence.
Why Ukuleles of all the instruments in all the world?
Why Ukuleles? It was all we could afford! Plus, Bassy has gout so any instrument where you
need to use your feet is out.
We will probably be wearing our self promotional band tour t-shirts. The tour dates only go up to
May 2012, so that counts as retro right? Aside from finding clean trousers/sarongs we will
DEFINITELY be wearing Marks and Spencer underwear. There is no alternative for comfort,
support and style.
Here are the boys in action...are you quite ready?
You can find out more by following the boys on Facebook and chatting to them on twitter @Grandoldukes1
