Genre: Pop, Orchestral Funk Popssical
Energetic and unabashedly romantic, The Duke of Uke & His Novelty Orchestra enchants audiences with witty lyrics, complex vocal harmonies and funky rhythms. Their infectiously optimistic sound draws from a wide range of influences—classical composers such as Bach, to tin pan alley ragtime tunes, to elements of gospel and Motown, to rock and roll artists of the '60s and 70s. The unique combination of ukulele, violin, tuba, saxophone, bass, rock drums and latin percussion swing from sweet to funky.
