Ukulele and a passion for photography drew this trio together. Michael Heaton, Marg Monaghan and Mick Angeles met through BUMS, and were the principal photographers for Brisbane’s SPRUKE 2015 Festival. All three became members of BUMS performing band, NUMB BUMS who meet regularly in Brisbane’s northern suburb of Zillmere.

Basic instruments in the band include ukuleles and a uBass, with all three affiliates adept in both instruments and vocals. Duke Ukem are also capable of including guitars, keyboards, banjo, mandolin, harmonica, didgeridoo and flute to enhance their sound.

With the combined experience of a million years, Duke Ukem delight their audiences with their eclectic selection of songs and playing styles to have you foot tapping, dancing and singing along.


Duke Ukem is an associated performing band of Brisbane Ukulele Musicians Society (BUMS Inc)
