The Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra are awful. Playing twee covers with masses of ukuleles is getting old.

The Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra is one of the greatest ukulele ensmebles in the world. Anyone who thinks their music isn't good is either deaf, hates music, or is a nazi.

Disliking the Wellington Ukulele Orchestra doesn't not make a person a music hater or nazi. I just hate twee butchery of good songs. 10 ukuleles does not sound good. It's not like a string ensemble where the combination of instruments (violins, cellos etc)changes the tone colour in interesting ways. Liking ukulele orchestras shows severe lack of imagination. As does calling people nazis.

The kiwiana schtick of the Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra is very nationalistic. The Nazi Party was a very nationalistic organisation so I can imagine them enjoying the Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra very much. It'd be nice if people moved beyond hipster cover bands like the Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra. Check out some actual New Zealand orchestral music like the symphonies of Douglas Lilburn. Or why not actually listen to The Bats. They're a great band. And their original version of 'Boogey Man' is really good.
