Gigs With Ukes 1

Gonzo ‘Dog-Do’ Bar Band – bonzo2012 (Photo credit: catmachine)

Sunday 15th July at the 100 Club saw a double bill of Martin White and the Mystery Fax Machine Orchestra plus, headlining, the Gonzo ‘Dog-Do’ Bar Band (the world’s first – and only – Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band tribute act).

The Mystery Fax Machine Orchestra is a 24-piece pop baroque orchestra, who play humorous and over-the-top arrangements of original compositions led by Martin, who swaps between merely conducting, wielding his accordion or playing the uke.

Martin is also known for running the regular Karaoke Circus nights, where comedians do battle against members of the public in a singing competition.

Here’s a version of Maybe:

As for the Gonzos, this was billed as their last-ever performance. Great fun – no ukes in sight though, so have a Jollity Farm uke cover version & Neil Innes‘ own chords to Urban Spaceman:
