Ukulele Russ-Alaska’s One-Man Frontier Band
November 3 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
With a stage name like Ukulele Russ, one might imagine Hawaiian shirts and inoffensive luau music or maybe a bunch of kid-friendly songs espousing the benefits of making friends and learning to tie shoes.
But that’s about as far away from reality as possible.
Russ is a hugely talented on the axe (or, as he refers to the diminutive instrument, the hatchet) and he does some pretty innovative stuff with a loop pedal and a bass ukulele that he secures to a stand with DeWalt clamps.
Plus he’s an engaging storyteller, frank and funny (and maybe a little crass) and highly entertaining.
This was one of last season’s most talked about shows!
