The Ukoholix are a ukulele band based in South Wales performing singalong cover songs from the sixties right up to todays chart hits. 
Playing clubs , festivals , holiday parks , private functions and wedding's up and down the country and even Europe .
The Ukoholix are the only ukulele band in Wales that also do LIVE karaoke or karaUke as they like to call it , encouraging members of the audience to join them on stage and being the lead singer of your very own band.
If you are looking for something different , fun and most of all entertaining for your guests or friends then The Ukoholix are just what you are looking for .
We also offer as part of our entertainment package for partys and weddings a DJ , So if you need a live band and a disco rather than booking  seperately we  can do both which saves you time and money . 

we are on soundcloud !!!! 

we have been into local recording studio and done some of our songs to get digital recordings as most of the top festivals and music / beer festival need these as part of the application process , the studio was a bit small and so we had to take turns going in and doing our bit , i would rather have done live recordings but as yet not had a chance but i'll keep trying , anyway go to sound cloud and have a listen , let me know what you think .

Realy busy year 

2016 is turning out to be a really busy year for the band with bookings coming in think and fast so much so wwe are booked up through to September and with a couple of wedding enquiries for that month it looks like if you want to book the band for you pub or special occasion you may have to wait till the first two weeks in October !

The Kinsale gig 

What a night ! Possibly the best gig we have had in quite some time , the crowd were fantastic and in fine voise all night , many of them chatting to band members at the break and when we finished say how much they enjoyed the evening , but the pleasure was all ours . There is nothing better than having a crowd singing and cheering as loud as they did at the kinsale in the mumbles , they realy made us feel welcome and we hope to be back there before the end of the year , thanks again guys 

Gower heritage centre success 

For the fifth time we have played at the heritage centre festivals and for the fifth time we have had a great reception and the crowd have joined in with the fun . Lot of great feedback off people in the crowd afterwards letting us all know how much they enjoyed . So we might see you there next time and thanks again to all the staff at the centre for the great hospitality .

The band has applied to play at festivals both near and far so keep an eye on the events page . Private party's are not listed in events but  all other events will be updated as and when they are confirmed. 

surprise gig today 

well the surprise  gig was fantastic today , we played for steve and Lauren and the rest of the wedding goers but not an stage , not in a reception but on the top deck of a London double decker bus from the church in Gorseinon to the rereception at the king Arthur in renoldstone . Thanks to the mother of the bride Sarah for asking us to help with making the day that little bit more special. The guest sang along all the way and Steven the groom even took charge and did sweet caroline that would have had mr diamond applauding . The trip was eventful  and harder to play, sing and stay up right at the same time than I imagined when we were first asked to play but I'm realy glad we got the chance , so thank you again an congratulations to steven and Lauren

seeing in the new year at Llanrhidian 

What a night ! The new year was seen in with a bang at Llanrhidian last night in the purple badger bar with the crowd in good spirits and fine voice and a big thank you to all the karauke star that came up and joined the band and made the night a huge success . A couple of time during the night the crowd out sang the band even with the pa turned up the mass sing along could not be beaten . A big thank you to all the staff and management of the holiday park who were also  singing and dancing behind the bar .
