The Flukes, a 3-piece ukulele band from Dunedin, have been fluking it in Dunedin since 2016! As ‘first day’ members of the University of Otago ukulele group, Uni Ukes, the group was formed when Su White (concert and tenor uke), Tushar
Robins (tenor uke) and Fiona Stuart (soprano uke) thought it would be a good idea to further challenge themselves, and to perform the songs they really wanted to. Their early performances were busking on the streets of Dunedin, moving on to busk
at their local supermarket and playing 2-hour stints at the Otago Farmer's Market. The Flukes have played for friends and family, have been booked for the odd private function, and have developed a solid fan base. The Flukes were invited to open
for Canadian ukulele virtuoso James Hill in Geraldine in November 2017, and most recently were on the big stage at the Geraldine Ukulele Festival in July 2018, playing before the American folk duo, The Quiet American. To The Flukes, every song
is a uke song – and they are happy to play and sing songs from a wide range of genres. They particularly like to surprise people by performing songs that no one expects from 3 middle-aged women! They love to incorporate different strumming patterns,
picking and plucking to add texture to the musicthey play, and their intricate vocal harmonies bring richness and vibrancy to their performances.
