St. Petersburg, Fla. (Feb. 22, 2016) – Hailing from the home of the Hobbit movies and sharing DNA with Flight of the Conchords, New Zealand entertainment powerhouse The Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra returns to The Palladium Theater Saturday, March 19 at 8 p.m., part of our “Mahaffey on the Move” series.
They’re in hot demand worldwide for their winning combination of charming humor, disarmingly small ukuleles and sublime musicality.
The Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra are skilled performers who live to entertain, making sure audiences forget their troubles and sing their hearts out. Their signature sound features high-octane ukulele solos, heavenly multi-part vocal harmonies and an impressive range of ukuleles. Flamboyant outfits, delightful theatrical effects and convivial crowd participation complete the night.
The band’s repertoire is a superbly eclectic curation of songs appropriated from many genres alongside tunes from the South Pacific, all packaged into a spectacular funfest. Their number one rule is: “If you know the words, sing along. If you don’t know the words, sing along!”
Tickets, $35, $45 and $55, may be purchased online at mahaffeyonthemove.com, charge by phone at 727.893.7832 or in person at The Mahaffey Theater Box Office. The Mahaffey Box Office is open 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Saturday. On the day of the show, tickets are only available at the Palladium box office.
