We're friends who discovered one day that we all play ukulele. We love covering all sorts of songs, ranging from old folk tunes to current pop hits. Often we incorporate other small acoustic instruments into our repertoire such as kazoos, melodicas, triangle, glockenspiel and more! We're great at parties.
