Things I Love #10

Things I Love #10: The Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra.

In honor of the start of their Epic, One-Week-Long Tour of Wellington, I’d like to introduce you to the WIUO. I took the above video at their gig at the Leigh Sawmill in Leigh, about an hour north of Auckland, in November last year. They boast a Conchord of their very own, they really are that much fun, and they were my inspiration to buy a ukulele of my own (“Honey”. I’ll introduce you to her later).

If you ever get the chance (they’re yet to be quite as international as they purport), do yourself a favor and catch a live show. I challenge you to find a more enjoyable way to spend an hour or so.
