Our 2nd generation spiritual mentors are on tour!

Anyone fancy meeting up to see them? :D I was thinking of heading over to Berlin - Christmas markets, and a bit of uke awesomeness.

OK but is it just me thinking this...

they don't look anywhere near as cool as the WIUO :roll: :worry:

Also I saw 4 of them performing on a childrens TV show (Space Pirates on CBeebies incase you want to try to see it) a while back performing 500 Miles. Their attire was dressed for dinner and dull as dishwater. I kind of missed the looseness of what I've seen of WIUO. Far more relaxed and crowd pleasing. And with a few hotties to boot :wink:

No, I've complained about their clothes also :D

Think they're all a little older than WIUO.

But top marks for appearing on appearing on Britain's Got Talent (I've not seen this, but have heard they did)

We must admit the WIUO are a lot better looking and way, way cooler, but UOGB is still a very good orchestra and they seem funnier for looking so proper (and dull) :D

And their Berlin show is called 'Never Mind the Tannenbaum' - that's pretty cool! Trip over may be unaffordable....will have to dine solely on toast :hrm:

Yeah, that's a nice scam, isn't it? Here's a couple of sticks and some yarn. Knock yourself out! :lol:
