Durham Uke Orchestra plays the Marvell

The DUO is excited to play another gig at the Marvell Events Center this Wednesday night, October 29th. Doors open at 9. DUO plays, we think, at 11. We love this club, a funky little place with a great vibe in downtown Durham. We'll be playing, in addition to our usual offerings, some tunes chosen for their halloween appropriateness. Come join the fun!

Bookulele fun

We had a great time at Bookulele on Friday night. The Friends School group was fun. The ukulele costumes were cool to see. And the DUO had a great time playing for a really enthusiastic, supportive audience. We even played our first "Encore!" ever. Special thanks to George Michaels, who led us in a fantastic version of The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. George, we hope to play with you again! And our young guest performer AJ: Wow! Thanks for joining us! Extra special thanks to Lee and Christine at High Strung for making the show happen, and to Broad Street Cafe for giving us space to play.
