Friday 24th May 2016 brings the much anticipated visit of Dead Mans Uke to the Hinckley ACT music club in Leicestershire.
Dead Mans Uke is a stripped down ukulele and bass combo that plays blues, americana, old and new covers and anything else they darn well please on resonator ukulele and double bass.
Tim & Jake Smithies have been playing music together for a while now… as a father and son duo and as part of the mighty Anything Goes Orchestra.
They played most of the local pubs in their now native Yorkshire Dales, the odd festival including the prestigious Ukulele Festival of Great Britain and have recorded a debut EP.
They are now heading further afield and stomping all the way… you have been warned.
Dum ching. Dum Ching.
The entrance fee for the evening was £10 for members and £11 for non-members.
The event started at 8.00 pm, with doors opening at 7.30 p.m.
Based in the Sketchley Meadows Business Park, Hinckley ACT is a high quality music venue that offers an informal and intimate atmosphere for concerts and for the monthly club nights, where musicians can come along and ‘take the stage.’ Established by company chairman, Keith London, on the premises of his firm Advanced Carbide Tooling (A.C.T.), the venue provides full stage and seating facilities, plus top quality sound and lighting equipment.
There is a licensed bar and ample free car parking.
