I hope there'll be quite a few WTFers who will be able to see them live while they're touring the US.
Ukeleles the sound of the summer

The Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra is releasing its debut album in November, before touring New Zealand for the first time in two years.
After starting in the capital, the 11-person band is now spread around the country. But they got together in Wellington last week for a quick jam.
The record, Be Mine Tonight, aims to capture the sound of summer.
"Road trips, barbecues, Saturday nights – all of that," says Carmel Russell.
In their nine years together, the Orchestra has released a number of EPs, but never an album.
