Gig Information

The Nukes - Aotearoa’s/NZ’s most beloved and enduring original ukulele trio.

On the road again in the topsy-turvy year that is 2020, bringing joy and harmony to all they encounter.

The Nukes return to Rotorua for one night after a sell out performance in 2017. See their new lineup and enjoy their humour, musicianship and original tunes.

If you play ukulele, sign up for their 4:00pm workshop, learn some new techniques and play some of the Nukes original tunes then come back and relax into an evening show of original ukulele, humour and harmony.

Doors open 7:00pm for 7:30pm show. Supporting act The Thermaleles.

“The Nukes blew the audiences’ socks off with the combination of humour, fantastic song-writing, great musicianship and singing.” - Megan Peacock-Coyle, Oamaru Opera House.

We have another great songwriter in the house, Des Parsons (The Thermaleles). - Dave Parker. The Nukes.

In their show they’ll be playing some old favourites from their back catalogue, such as ‘Lemon-tree’ and ‘Island Queen’ (and perhaps the odd request from the audience), plus a swag of new songs to introduce to fans around the country.

The Nukes are one of Australasia’s most successful ukulele/ folk acts with more than 10 years under their belts and 3 compelling albums as proof of their creative endeavours (and well in excess of 100,000 streams and views). Don’t duck and cover, don’t try and be a hero…just gather all your friends and head for ground zero.

The Nukes have appeared at Womad NZ, Splore, Auckland and Canterbury Folk Festivals, Oamaru Heritage Festival, New Plymouth Festival Of Light, Wanaka Festival Of Colour, Coastella Festival, The Taranaki, Southland and Hawkes Bay Arts Festivals, Bluff Oyster Festival and a successful nationwide Arts On Tour NZ March 2017, They have also toured extensively in Australia.

seriously good musicians foot tapping riffsomic and engaging with vocals so clear a deaf man could forget his hearing aids and still have a ball. - Sam Edwards, Waikato Times, February 14th 2020
