Uke Hunt "Self Titled" CD


Uke-Hunt is Me First And The Gimme Gimmes vocalist Spike Slawson's latest cover band extravaganza. What started as Spike simply learning and arranging some of his favorite classic songs for the ukulele on his own eventually evolved into added musicians and a layered patchwork of ukulele, saxophone, glockenspiel, stylophone, organ, standup bass and all manner of percussive elements. Obviously, due in no small part to the instrumentation, this most recent foray into the world of breathing new life into shopworn classics displays a decidedly different slant than the breakneck tempo of the Gimmes. Uke-Hunt slips into something a little more comfortable with a lounge/soul vibe that'd be at home in a Tiki bar, Elks lodge, rock club or on a sunny patio.
