And now for something completely different! You've never heard the ukelele played to such swinging effect.
The Rev Hank Trio transports the diminutive ukelele from its home waters of Tahiti to the speak-easies of Storyville, Harlem and South Chicago, turning the once again popular ukulele into a 4-string swing machine.
The Rev Hank Trio features Andrew Beazley on Ukulele Bass, Frank den Haan on percussion, and ukelele master Mike Diabo on lead "Uke". The band's repertoire includes standards & not so standards from Jerome Kearns & Duke Ellington to Thelonius Monk & Ornette Coleman.
