MUK is a diverse, open-armed gaggle of ukulele musicians each equipped with only four strings and the truth! With small egos, yet big dreams - MUK is on a crusade to bring the greatest glory to the humblest of instruments and put music back into the hands and hearts of the people! Since crashing through the TV screens of the nation in 2006 (Spicks and Specks: ABC TV) the Melbourne Ukulele Kollective is still boldly going where no ukuleles have gone before. Expect the "klassic MUK kostumes" as well as unexpected songs not normally played on a ukulele. Described by Brian Nankervis as “mysterious…and feral,” by some as “self indulgent” and by Ben the sound engineer as “not as scary as I thought you were,” MUK delights in crossing borders, smashing boundaries and raising the humble ukulele to new and outlandish heights! MUK has played Moomba, Fed Square, Hamer Hall, National Folk Festival and a host of other pubs and venues including headlining the annual Melbourne Ukulele Festival. They perform in art and music festivals, pubs, race courses, parks, theatres, schools and on the streets. In 2004 MUK was Australia’s first ukulele group and proclaimed that the Ukulele Revolution had arrived. After over 500 members and nearly 20 years, they continue to proclaim its glorious victory!
