Full Biography

When Ukulele Matthew makes an appearance at a concert, festival, pub or party, his musical comedy set is always a highlight for an audience, no matter the occasion.

His virtuosic musicianship combined with his great sense of humour gets the audience singing, laughing, watching in awe and dancing along to a fine selection of comical songs from past decades and more recent years.

This is not a traditional covers performance, more a trip down memory lane to explore some of the best British forgotten, obscure, absurd, hilarious and feel-good gems of years gone by, whose timeless humour will cause many a giggle!

“…you were worth the ticket price alone”
Anon. at Shrewkfest, 2018

Available Lineups
Matthew can perform solo or with his backing band (price on application, please speak to an Alive Network booking agent for more details).

As a soloist, Matthew can fit into smaller lounges or tight spots. However, hiring Matthew to bring along his drummer and pianist brings an extra dimension to the performance, amplifying the volume of the performance (for festivals and large halls) and adding further excitement and interest for all.

All the musicians Matthew works with are finely selected, experienced and talented musicians.
