‘Ukulele will never be the same’

The Nukes from West Auckland 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.
The innocent little uke is the instrument of choice and audiences will be staggered by what they are able achieve with it. Great song writing, musicianship and 3-part harmony combine to create a truly memorable experience.

Rollicking and rolling out of the woolliest corners of Auckland’s wild west, it’s……. The Nukes, New Zealand’s most feared and revered original ukulele trio.
Comprised of Dave “Fingers of fire” Parker, David “Snapper” Thiele and Benjamin “Country boy” Collier, The Nukes have a reputation for reckless and riveting live shows where a fine blend of folk, bluegrass, reggae and post punk is caressed, coaxed and beaten out of three innocent wee ukuleles.
