Driffield Ukulele Band

A ukulele band is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face! 

Who We Are

In early Spring 2019, a few enthusiastic ukulele players from the Driffield area decided that although playing solo ukulele was good, playing with other like-minded performers was so much better – and a lot of fun.

And so, the Driffield Ukulele Band was born.

What We Do

A ukulele band is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face and the Driffield Ukulele Band will do just that!

We enjoy playing at a variety of events – parties, charity functions, fêtes and festivals, pub evenings, Women’s Institutes and residential care homes – small gatherings or large, inside or outside, we’ll be there. 

The music we play is varied and includes folk, country, swing and pop.

2022 was a busy year for the band. Our first performance was as the support act for the popular ‘Definitely Dolly’ night in Driffield, which was a very lively evening and in early May we joined up with the Middle 8 Singers for a Charity Spring Concert , raising funds for our chosen charities. In the Summer and Autumn we performed at many events in the Bridlington, Driffield and Beverley areas, including playing in the Acoustic Marquee at the Tribfest Music Festival, Sledmere House, which was great fun. The run up to Christmas was busy, with many live performances in the area. We produced a full length Christmas video – ‘The Driffield Ukulele Band at Christmas Live’ – which is now on YouTube. This was filmed at Wold Newton Church in order to raise funds for church improvements there. DVDs of this video have been distributed to residential care homes around Driffield. Plus, over the Christmas period, we posted songs on YouTube most days.

We hope that 2023 will be also be a busy year. We are currently working on a Spring playlist and are taking new bookings. Come and hear us play sometime – we look forward to seeing you!
