KORMAC'S BIG BAND & WEST CORK UKULELE ORCHESTRA head to Cork Opera House on Friday 20 April

Kormac’s Big Band
& The West Cork Ukulele Orchestra 

Fri 20 Apr, 8pm
Cork Opera House – Standing Gig


April 2012 - The seats have been stripped out for what promises to be an absolutely joyous double bill, Kormac's Big Band and The West Cork Ukulele Orchestra on Friday 20 April.

Fresh from an international tour of global festivals including Glastonbury, Bestival, Womad, Shambala, The Electric Picnic and Body & Soul festivals, Kormac's Big Band is an 11-piece orchestra, a mix of live turntables, samplers, drums, double bass, barbershop quartet, trumpet, clarinet, banjo and live visuals.

Twinned with these happy campers is the equally cheerful West Cork Ukulele Orchestra. Leapfrogging over barriers of genre, time and taste, the WCUO is comprised of nine disparate musical talents, brought together for one purpose: to rock the planet, ukulele-style! They will plunder the last 60 years musical awesomeness to put a rip-roaring show full of lush harmonies and death-defying ukulele-playing. Expect to hear classic and contemporary pop songs put through the blender, emerging turbo-charged and sparkling with ukulele magic. From A-Ha to Lady Gaga, from the Beach Boys to The Cure, things will never sound the same again!

A must see gig for all you muso’s out there!

Friday 20 April
Time: 8pm
Tickets: €18
