We’re really excited about playing at Duke of Uke next weekend. We’re supporting the fabulous Corner Laughers, alongside Fun of the Pier and Plastic Jeezus. We don’t get to play south often enough so it’d be lovely to see some of our London friends and fam there. The event starts at 2pm and it’s free entry too! Facebook event page
It’s true – we finally recorded our debut EP! We did it in the stunning surroundings of St Mark’s church in Levenshulme and we were joined on drums by the amazing Phil Howley – read more about it and see the photos on our shiny new website.
It is currently being pressed and will be available to buy on CD and download from 1st June. We are doing a very limited run of the CD so if you want one, don’t hang about.
We are officially launching The Wonky EP on Saturday 6th June at the Klondyke in Levenshulme, Manchester. Phil Howley will be joining us once again on drums so it proves to be very special. Hope to see you there.

Really looking forward to this gig – just look at the line up! You’d be mad to miss it… Facebook event page
A little spring thing for you. Written on Easter Sunday, recorded on Easter Monday. Featuring my brother, Oscar Armer on bass.
On March 25th, Levy Uke Up will be a year old. Yesterday was Part One of our birthday celebrations. We had a fantastic workshop with Phil Doleman, beautiful handmade ukes by Robert Collins and news of a Grand Northern Ukulele Festival from Mary Agnes Krell. Oh and this amazing birthday cake made by Jane! Thanks to everyone involved.
Part Two of our birthday celebrations will be our regular Uke Up this Sunday 24th March, 7pm at the Blue Bell Inn, Barlow Road (note the new venue). We’ve even compiled a songbook of our greatest hits from the past year. These are songs that always go down well at Uke Ups and they’re all fairly easy to play. I’ve updated some of the arrangements and amended the lyrics for Sister Kate.
We popped in to Wireless Manc’s Wednesday Drivetime show a few weeks ago. This is Carrying A Bomb, one of our newer songs. I wrote it a couple of years ago and then didn’t play it to a single soul. I need to stop doing that! Please forgive the frog in my throat…
We also did Messing With My Head:
