Fun page for our Ukulele jam…our aim is to have ukulele fun, playing popular songs badly and singing loudly, with a pint, or two, close to hand… and the occasional pizza from the kitchen of that smashing pub behind the Empire Theatre. Packed with fun, good beer, Ma’s pizza, the occasional visit from cast members of the latest Empire show, lots of audience participation – what’s not to like?
In 2018 the D’ukes organised the second ukulele festival in the world famous Cavern Club! (the first year in 2017 has two hour queues to gain access) It was a roaring success and we can expect more of the same in the future. You can see the performances on our You Tube Channel – Cavern Ukulele Festival 2018 Playlist
They have also played the Waterloo Ukulele Fun Festival, Mossley Hill Beer Festival Ukulele Takeover, Liverpool’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon, Transgender Awareness, Liverpool Pride, Liverpool Loves, Weddings, Kids Fest, Music Against Cancer, Smithdown Road Festival, Pilgrim Rock Night, Tall Ships Festival, Summer Strum (Hoylake) and regular busking appearances around Liverpool One (including the Christmas Lights Turn On). We’ll be appearing on stage again soon so keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter accounts for regular updates or view our Live Performances on You Tube

Ukuleles are tuned GCEA (George Clooney Eats Apples)
We suggest you buy yourself a “clip on chromatic tuner”, however, you can always borrow one of someone in the pub. If you want to practice at home these apps have built in tuners http://theukuleleapp.com/ and https://kalabrand.com/pages/start.
