Uke do something to me

The Sextet DukesTHE Sextet Dukes is putting the cool back into the ukelele, an instrument invented by Portuguese labourers slaving on the plantations of Hawaii in the 1880s.

Relegated for years to child’s toy status they’ve been enjoying a resurgence of credibility thanks in part to Paul McCartney playing one at a George Harrison memorial concert.

The Sextet Dukes go one further—their ukes are electric and they take it to a whole new level of awesome. Check them out for yourself at Clancy’s in Fremantle on Thursday May 29. Entry is a modest $5.
