Ukology performs a broad repertoire of early 20th century American string styles ranging from early blues, jazz and calypso to Hawaiian and original compositions.
The idea for Ukology was generated when Alex was asked to create a ukulele based ensemble to perform at the 2017 Melbourne Guitar Show. Alex put together a trio with his regular bass player Kain Borlaise and long-time guitar associate Michael Bright.
The musicians had a ball playing the tunes they love. And the audience responded enthusiastically to this authentic music from the dawn of recording.
Many of these songs were originally written for 4-string instruments and Ukology is proving to be the perfect vehicle to preserve and present this wonderful music. – timeless music that continues to influence musicians and resonant with audiences.
