Meet Adelaide’s Savoir Plunk, the surprise hit quintet at the 2016 Cairns Ukulele Festival! They also played sell out shows at the Adelaide Fringe Festival in 2017. Gigs are packed with the sounds of swing, jazz , blues, and BritPop. Savoir Plunk features vocal harmonies, drum/cajon, the ukulele range (incl. bass, banjolele, 8 string, resonator), and a multi-instrumentalist teasing a diverse range of percussion (melodica, xylophone, vibraslap etc). Savoir Plunk is a band (not a uke group) covering genres from the 60s and beyond. This is Ukulele for grown ups! They are eclectic, fun, and captivating. Shelley Wigley plays ukulele and sings lead with her commanding voice and great stage presence. Dave Taylor, known for his bass playing in Bluegrass bands, has downscaled to a U-bass for this act. Priscilla Steampunk is the band’s multi-talented ‘percussion Queen’. Christopher Carr (AKA Sir Fez) is known around town for his ukulele teaching, but features on Cajon, single drum, and vocals. Colin Falconer has been dragged to the dark side , playing lead uke, from his beginnings as a London studio musician and frequenter of Tin Pan Alley. An act not to be missed!
Line-up: Shelley Wigley, Dave Taylor, Christopher Carr (AKA Sir Fez), Colin Falconer, and Jodie Shooebridge (AKA ‘Priscilla Steampunk’).
