West Auckland ukulele band The Nukes will play at the Warkworth RSA on Sunday, April 8.
The Nukes describe themselves as “part vaudeville, part rat-pack and part musical car crash”.
They deliver all-original songs with plenty of three-part harmonies.
Their music ranges from folk and bluegrass to reggae and post-punk.
The band promises blistering riffs, riotous rhythms and questionable dance moves at the family-friendly Warkworth show.
The RSA concert will help promote the band’s Nukes III album, which spent six weeks in the NZ album chart top 10.
The band has performed more than 70 shows to sell-out crowds since the album’s release in February, 2017, including major festival show appearances, such as the Wanaka Festival of Colour, Coastella on the Kapiti Coast, Kokomai festival in Masterton and the Southland Festival of Arts.
Last November, The Nukes completed a successful three-week tour of Australia – the group’s fourth visit across the ditch.
Band manager Simon Vare says The Nukes have not been back to Warkworth for several years and the group are looking forward to this long overdue return.
Prior the show at 5pm, The Nukes will hold a workshop session on the ukulele, open to all ages, at 3.30pm.
Pre-sale show tickets $20 plus booking fee online at eventfinda. Alternatively, for workshop and show tickets, email email@example.com. Limited door sales $25.
