MELBOURNE UKULELE KOLLECTIVE
ABOUT THE BAND
Let There Be Uke!
Australia's 1st Uke Group est. 2004
M.U.K. is an open-armed gaggle of ukers of all ages and persuasions, each equipped with only four strings and the truth! With small egos and big dreams, they are on a crusade to bring the greatest glory to the humblest of instruments and put music back into the hands and hearts of the people!
What the MUK?
Since crashing through the tv screens of the nation in 2006 (Spicks and Specks: ABC TV) the Melbourne Ukulele Kollective is still boldly going where no ukuleles have gone before. The “MUK” is open to all who wish to join her, regardless of experience, and they delight in crossing borders, smashing boundaries and raising the humble ukulele to new and outlandish heights! They perform in art and music festivals, pubs, race courses, parks, theatres, schools and on the streets.
In 2004 they proclaimed that the Ukulele Revolution had arrived.
They now proclaim its glorious victory!
