      Hi Wanda - Really pleased you enjoyed the show and now want to share it with your friends. We actually have 3 tours of the US planned for next year so hopefully will make it to a city near you.

    After seeing all your videos that are on the internet, I decided to buy a ukulele and learn to play. You are a fantastic players.
    In Portugal there are many players of "cavaquinho", which was the instrument that gave the ukulele, as you know.
    When are you planning to come to Lisbon, Portugal?
    I have sent some of your Youtube videos to some Show Producers here in Portugal.
    I look forward to see you in Lisbon.
    Best Regards

      Hi Américo - We would love to play in Portugal and have discussed the possibilities with presenters in the past but so far have not been able to make the dates work. Hopefully we will get there one day soon.

    If you are arranging another tour to New Zealand, can you please include more of the South Island!!!
    The Nelson area is lovely with lots of vineyard locations which would suit your ensemble perfectly as destinations to perform.
    The two DVD's I purchased from you years ago are wearing very thin by now.
    Am already looking forward to your visit to NZ again.
    Thank you from another person living in NZ.

      Hi Charlot - A NZ tour is in the works for November 2015, we will see what we can do!

    Fantastic concert in Exeter last night at The Riverside. Especially loved the sea shanty version of Pinball Wizard and the variety of your "genres". Enjoy the rest of your tour and come back soon.

    I belong to the Budleigh Ukulele Strumming Club (88 players) who meet weekly in the local pub and we have a blast. Not up to your standard but we love the energy and fun. A lot of us were there last night so you have given us some ideas. Our speciality is "Hound Dog" with a resident dog who is now well trained to join in.

      Hi Annie - We're pleased you enjoyed the show in Exeter and it's great to hear we have given you some ideas. We're particularly amused that your favourite song had absolutely no ukuleles in it all! Best wishes to all the members of the Budleigh Ukulele Strumming Club - including the hound dog!

  • John Lance

    My Wife and I saw you in Aldershot last year.the concert was just great. Will you be returning or at least somewhere close?

      hi John - No plans for Aldershot at the moment but we will be playing the Wickham Festival in August, details here: http://www.wickhamfestival.co.uk/ We will also be returning to Guildford in 2015. Hope to see you at a show soon.

    It would make my life you you lot came down to brighton! hugs and kisses xo

    URGENT REQUEST! Your presence in your former colonies is immediately demanded. After all, we DO speak a form of the Queen's English here, albeit a bit coarser and earthier.

    You would be required to make arrangements for a concert in Chicago, although, I guess New York, Washington DC (to see how we repaired our nation's capitol after your 1812 trespass! LOL!), St Louis, Los Angeles and San Francisco, as well as some of the higher class back water towns.

    Okay! So much for an attempt at humour! It would truly be an honour to have you folks come and perform in the States. There would be enough interest for several dates in some of the cities. Jsut a wish, I guess. It's gotta cost a whole bunch for travel for you and your required equipment, or rental of same to beat the customs prostitutes!

    I discovered you folks by accident, surfing through YouTube and became INFATUATED! I am a bassist and guitarist, with hands that have these 5 fat sausages attached, so ukes are a bit hard for me to play, although I can. As a folk singer/collector/ interpreter and solo performer, I am totally taken back by your stage presence, your "bits" and, most of all the musical talents and arranging. Would so like to see and hear your concert and meet you all, especially---well, I'll let you folks guess!

    Looking forward to your crossing of the Atlantic pond soon!

      Hi MadDawg - Just for you we have arranged 2 tours of the USA in 2015. So far 3 dates have been announced but another 18 are to follow. Keep an eye on our gigs listing page for details. BTW having sausages for fingers is no excuse for not playing the ukulele, just ask George!

    Please tell me you are coming back to Edinburgh sometime during 2014!!!!!!

    I bought my husband a eukulele as part of his Christmas presents last year since he loved your performances so much. It would give him a lovely boost to see you again.

    Hi, Are you appearing anywhere near Liverpool this year please?
    My dad has been a Ukulele player for many years and I would like to treat him to a good night out (he's 80 this year!)
    Many Thanks, and I hope to see you soon.

      Ukulele Orchestra April 8, 2014 at 5:29 pm

      We were at Liverpool Philharmonic in February so you just missed us there. But we will be back in the North West, the next nearest date is The Lowry, Salford Quays. We are also going to Gawsworth Hall and have a few other dates in the pipeline that are yet to be confirmed. So keep an eye on our gig list.
