The Acts

D’Ukes are a very entertaining 6-piece electric ukulele covers band and are one of the longer lasting ukulele bands in Essex.


The Award-Winning Opera-lele has rapidly established itself as one of the most innovative and exciting new acts in the UK.

Opera-lele is a crossover act specialising in singing music from opera and musical theatre accompanied by the emotionally powerful yet understated twang of the ukulele.

Ben Rouse first started on guitar at the age of 11 and by the age of 14 he was already playing in clubs and venues in many different bands as a lead guitarist.

He was introduced to the ukulele a few years ago and Ben soon realised that this little instrument was able to produce an extremely wide range of amazing sounds. Since then he hasn’t looked back and now devotes all his time to the ukulele.

Old­time, good­time, ragtime blues from Phil Doleman and Ian Emmerson , featuring the songs of legends like Blind Blake, Jelly Roll Morton, The Mississippi Sheiks, Robert Johnson, and more. With an almost telepathic tightness and songs that will raise a smile, they'll show you that blues isn't just about misery!
