Blue Smoke family arvo show kicks of at 4 pm. Door sales from 3.30 pm or pre sale at Eventfinda with kids invited for a koha. The afternoons show will feature local school ukulele players in on a few tunes that were part of the weeks schools workshop and show visits about Canterbury.

The Nukes from West Auckland are far more than a ukulele band. Part vaudeville, part rat-pack, part musical car crash, this talented trio deliver an engaging mix of humour and originality that audiences of all ages will love. The innocent little uke is the instrument of choice and people will be staggered by what the Nukes are able to achieve with it.

Great song-writing, musicianship and 3-part harmony combine to create a truly memorable, entertaining experience. Aotearoa’s favourite original ukulele trio began life in a humble but spectacular fashion way back in the heady days of 2008.

Founded by Dave Parker, Ben Collier and Dave ‘Snapper’ Thiele, The Nukes promptly set about carving themselves a cozy niche in the cutthroat world of the New Zealand ukulele scene. Many roads have been travelled in the decade since many songs have been sung and many challenges overcome.

Now, with the soul wrenching retirement of the inimitable Snapper Thiele, The Nukes face a turn in the road and a fresh set of possibilities.

Dave and Ben have recruited multi-instrumentalist Mike Burrows to help ease their aching hearts, kiss their boo boos and make it all better. What will this mysterious stranger bring to the party? Only time will tell.

Luckily you won’t have to wait too long because the lads are coming back down to Canterbury with Public shows and workshops at Balcairn, Lincoln, Lyttleton, Timaru and Christchurch

It’s the new Nukes. Do try it.
