The epitome of all the K’s- Kooky, Kitsch and being a total katch (yes that was slightly adapted) , The Kooky Ukes are Ireland’s only drinks reception band that play solely on the ukuleles, utterly turning genres upside down. They are Music Angel’s answer to “unique” entertainment or as one couple stated – “They are something I’ve never seen before”. The trio play will welcome guests to your reception with a collage of covers, offering a twist on classic and contemporary records as diverse from “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” to A-HA’s “Take On Me”.

Check out this video trailer here, it’s a little glimpse into what The Kooky Ukes are all about.
