Ukeristic Congress @ Jack of Diamonds Festival (photos)
Ukeristic Congress is a jolly six-piece band of ukulele players with some other instruments thrown in here and there. They play both their own songs and covers of some well-known classic tunes from The Beatles to Santana, Kings of Leon, Frank Sinatra and many bands in between. They were founded in 2010 in Dublin.
They had a set on Friday night at Sweeneys (top floor), as part of Jack of Diamonds Festival. We had a great time as their energy and rhythm was contagious enough to make everyone dance and, I have to admit, I never knew how cool a ukulele bass sounds.
The band members: Andrew Robinson, James Quah, Shay Bagnall, Sonny Park, Mick Kenny, Keith White.
