The Nukes, Aotearoa’s/NZ’s most beloved and enduring ‘original ukulele trio’.
For more than 10 years this unlikely league of musical miscreants has traipsed around Australasia, bringing joy and harmony to all they encounter. With 3 compelling albums of their self-penned tunes as proof of their creative endeavours; and well over 100,000 streams and views.
At the helm is Dave Parker, inveigling with a sparkling voice and a compelling custom uke sound that commands respect.
Swabbing the decks is Curious percussionist ‘mysterious’ Mike Burrows (who also packs a spry falsetto) while the audacious slide ukulele and wry humour of Ben Collier keep the whole shebang on an even keel.
It’s original, quirky and Kiwi.
If you see that The Nukes are coming your way, don’t duck and cover, don’t try and be a hero.. Just gather all your friends and head for ground zero.
“The Nukes blew the audiences’ socks off with the combination of humour, fantastic song-writing, great musicianship and singing” – Oamaru Opera House
