The Ugly Uncles biography ( they wrote a new one )

The Ugly Uncles got together some twenty or more years ago really just to see if it’s possible to have as much fun on stage as the audience does off stage – and they’ve been ‘uncling’ ever since.

Multi-instrumentalists that they are, the Uncles boldly go where few have gone before taking audiences on a fun-filled ride that defies genre and often, good taste.

The Uncles’ idiosyncratic repertoire deftly melds influences as diverse as jug-band, jazz, country-blues, calypso, rock, swing and Celtic folk. In fact, they ‘uncle’ just about everything! And the banter in between is worth the price of entry alone.

The Ugly Uncles are {we think) :
Uncle Derek Guille – popular ABC radio personality and music buff on lead vocals, guitar, kazoo and other musical toys
Uncle James Rigby – vocals, guitars, banjo, mandolin
Uncle Tony Allan – vocals, guitar, harmonica and whatever else takes his fancy
Uncle Steve Edward – piano, Irish whistles (but never a microphone)
Uncle Sally Taylor – fiddle, vocals
Uncle Pip Avent – tuba, bass guitar, vocals
Uncle Jim Brannon – vocals, alto sax, clarinet, pineapple and he’s a whistling virtuoso
Uncle Rod Bradbury – drums, vocals

And be warned they all have ukuleles!

The Ugly Uncles are welcome repeat offenders at Albert Park Port Lounge and at every other festival, they’ve even gotten invited back ( even with the ukes???? like really???).

They also do events and wineries in between festival appearances.
The Ugly Uncles are an immersive experience not to be missed!

I always jump at the chance to have them back again, it’s always a wonderful night and this one will be better. Not to be missed!
