About Us

The Buskuleles of Usk is an energetic band of 24 ukulele players, also featuring banjolele, percussion, bass and cajon drum.  We play a variety of music genres including country, rock, folk, blues in fact anything that is entertaining and appropriate and will capture the attention of an audience.

The band was set up in March 2016 after four founding members had ukuleles for Christmas.  Having learned the basic chords we looked to join a local group and being disappointed that there wasn’t one, we started our own!  From not having enough members to pay the rent for our practice venues, we now have a waiting list.

Under the leadership of “Johnny Two Dogs” we enthusiastically embrace our music and practice hard; not only to maintain our current standard but to keep improving and broaden our repertoire.  We love to support local charities and organisations, enjoying not only helping to raise funds but in bringing pleasure through our music.  We take pride in being a very happy, united, forward looking band that delights in being able to entertain people and share our enthusiasm for the ukulele.
