Ukulele music in its most vibrant form yet!
We have all been chosen for a reason and that reason is to be awesome. With our powers combined we shall create a uke band the likes of which has never been seen. We are as one and as one our powers of uke are strongest. Our destiny is greatness, our greatness is as one super uke group together.
As the tallest member of band Andy is quite easy to spot and can often be found loitering behind one of the microphones, although that is mostly because the rest of the band need a stepladder to be able to reach it.
Bruce is the elder statesman of Strumdiddlyumptious resulting in him often suggesting 'new' songs which are actually quite old. His musical career and training is based on a 'self-taught' philosophy after borrowing his mates guitar at university.
Seb's "eclectic" taste in music has had both positive and less positive impacts upon Strumdiddlyumptious' song list. Seb will often be seen bobbing up and down at the back of the group because he is not allowed near the front for safety reasons.
Mark can usually be found at the front of the band leading the way. His previous work includes musical directing, rehearsal pianist, teaching and performing in vocal harmony groups. Mark has travelled the world thanks to music and visited places from Italy to the Caribbean.
Sam was born with special rhythmic bones and he is the beat which pulses behind the roaring ukes of Strumdiddlyumptious. Sam is also custodian of the band's mascot, a squirrel named Hazel, and during gigs he likes to maximise both his and Hazel's stage presence.
Little is known of Jon's origins. It is said he was found by Doug in a scrapyard, curled up with his ukulele in the boot of a 1988 Honda Accord AeroDeck. Jon's fingers are made of the same material as a cheetah's leg, enabling him to play at speeds in excess of 43mph.
Until a few years ago Doug didn't really know what a ukulele was. Then one day his father in law was given one as a present and dragged Doug along to a local ukulele group. It was love at first pluck, and since that night Doug has slowly become average at the ukulele.
The observant folks amongst you will notice Sarah is the sole sister in the band. She plays ukulele, sings beautifully and also possesses the most amazing pair of shoes which Bruce would pinch and wear if his feet were a little smaller.
