Plucking Different

Plucking Different are an alternative infectious high-energy entertaining ukulele band performing popular feel-good foot tapping songs.

Starting out as a ukulele club that practiced in a local pub, Plucking Different quickly evolved into a favorite live act on the local music scene performing at music & beer festivals, pubs and private parties.

The band’s popularity is defined by their unique approach to classic songs, which differentiates the aptly named Plucking Different from your average covers or ukulele band. Every member of the band plays a uke and joins in lead or backing harmony vocals. This is underpinned by live percussion, bass guitar, energy, enthusiasm and friendly banter on and off stage!

The end result is an entertaining feel-good party environment for everyone young and old – including the band members!
