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 Mans Uke have been playing together for ages as father and son and also part of the mighty Anything Goes Orchestra. They strive to bring not only top tunes and skillful playing to each show but also a lot of fun and entertainment too
"Dead Mans Uke is a melodic, ukulele-and-bass driven tumble into the pool of popular new music. I’m impressed by their killer vocals and inventive instrumental accompaniment, hunt them down (or look them up) and listen!"
Boston Based Singer Songwriter
"Dead Mans Uke is a two man band who rock vintage tunes in a new yet old kinda way!"

“Don’t miss the
Dead Men Live!”
The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain
“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.”
Bermuda’s Favourite Musician
“Tim’s Uke playing, singing and stories were perfectly pitched, whilst Jake’s double bass playing set the music alight”
