Why Dead Mans Uke?

The resonator ukulele that Tim plays once belonged to the legendary Tiny Tim and was played by him up until his death in 1996 - there’s more info on this at Steve Evan’s site here:  www.beltona.com.

“Dead Man’s Uke blend an old school sensibility with modern selections in an original style in a wonderful and unique way that I think is incredibly important. Their brilliance lies in their ability to own a song, making it theirs after only one listen.”

“Tim’s Uke playing, singing and stories were perfectly pitched, whilst Jake’s double bass playing set the music alight”
