Ukes of Hazard Live! Friday, August 5, 2011

the Ukes of Hazard laying down ukelele law

After last weeks 'I Fought The Law' with 'The Clash City Rockers' it was the turn of the 'Ukes Of Hazard' this week to demonstrate their 'Laying Down of the Ukelele Law' at Sharky Bar & Restuarant.

With tv film characters ' Uncle Jesse, Bo, Luke, Daisy Duke, Sheriff Rosco and Boss Hogg' unavailable to steer 'The General Lee' - it was left to our very own ' Dylan, James and Stu' to fly the flag on their behalf for Hazard County !

Not quite 'country & western' but moreso 'a mixture of different pop, rock and other rock-a-billy musical styles. 'The Ukes Of Hazard' certainly bring 'fun' back into the concert hall - with a capital 'F' !!

An eclectic 'two hour set' followed that included great Ukelele versions of songs, such as Hot Chocolates pop classic 'I Believe In Miracles ', Michael Jacksons timeless musical anthem ' Beat It' and even a Ukelele version of the 'one and only' Beatles masterpiece 'Come Together.'

Rousing stuff and all done with 'tongue-firmly-in-cheek' - great stuff !

Other notable 'highpoints' included Kings Of Lyon's 'Sex On Fire' and a version of 'Knocking On Heaven's Door' that probably outshone the original.

By this time Dylan (not Bob) was well into 'overdrive' with his magic 'osciallator' box - and James was playing an assortment of riches - that included harmonica, kazoo, tambourine - and the occasional hi-pitched shrill !

All good fun !

Mind you good thing they had Stu behind them on drums to peg them back a little - or these 'two' might easily have even surpassed the great and famous 'Emerson, Lake & Palmer' - in the realms of musical improvisation and creative wizardy.

Yes a great night, a massive turn-out and a superb performance from the duelling uke dudes - that are Dylan, James and Stu !

Thanks guyz - it was a pleasure !

See u back very soon (I hope) at Sharky Bar & Restuarant - The Number One Venue for Live Music in Phnom Penh !
