Popular ukulele band D’Ukes who will be performing at the Fairkytes Arts Centre in mid-March are supporting this year’s Great Daffodil Appeal which raises funds for Marie Curie.   The band will  be in Hornchurch High Street on Saturday 12 March (afternoon) promoting their show and also  adding a bit of music in support of the appeal.


“We have supported the Marie Curie Great Daffodil Appeal in previous years and are happy to do so again” said John Mattock the band’s bass ukulele player.  “We are also happy to be making our first visit to Fairkytes Live as part of our Joy Of Six tour” John added.

Since forming back in 2009, D’Ukes have gone on to become a highly sought after electric ukulele  band performing on TV and BBC Radio as well as theatres and festivals across the south east. 

Whether it’s rock and pop, jazz and blues, ska and reggae, D’Ukes manage to reinterpret songs in  ways that may surprise you using only the four stringed ukulele with a hint of percussion and plenty of humour!  

D’Ukes performance at Fairkytes Live is on Friday 18 March at 8pm.  Tickets are £13 (£11  concessions) from Fairkytes Arts Centre in Billet Lane (01708 456308) or email  fairkytes@havering.gov.uk or book on-line www.seetickets.com/event/fairkytes-live-presents-dukes/fairkytes-arts-centre/915120
