Too Much Fun

Too Much Fun

Studio recordings are all well and good, but the spirit, the energy, the humor, and interaction of the band in a live setting is the best way to enjoy Too Much Fun. Not only can you count on 'genuine danceability' from the tunes, there are also the jokes, the quizzes, the tributes, and generally good-natured goofiness that sometimes emanates.

Great grooves, great lyrics, great playing! Too Much Fun is American roots, rock, and rhythm & blues at it's finest. If you're not dancing, tapping your foot, or smiling....you ain't payin' attention.

Durham Ukulele Orchestra

Durham Ukulele Orchestra

The Durham Ukulele Orchestra organically grew out of a ukulele jam session. At practice sessions, the band began to mix together their wide range of tastes into a cohesive and delicious “musical soup" - from jazz standards to art rock classics like Psycho Killer by The Talking Heads.

Bending to the will of four-stringed instruments, the orchestra continues to turn out surprising and delightful renditions from the world of popular music. And although the band is very serious about what they do, (as serious as ukuleleists can be) the central idea behind D.U.O. has always been fun. Fun music to play and fun for audiences to listen to! The band’s love for playing with each other keeps this tiny juggernaut rolling on.
