Uke-Hunt

Introducing Uke-Hunt, your premier choice for a one-of-a-kind musical experience! Led by the charismatic Spike Slawson from the legendary Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, Uke-Hunt is not your typical cover band. While both outfits delve into the art of covers, Uke-Hunt brings a refreshing twist to the table.


Picture this: upbeat classics transformed into soulful, melodic renditions, where every note is a journey into serenity. Unlike the Gimmes' penchant for punking up non-rock tunes, Uke-Hunt specializes in slowing down and mellowing out beloved songs, infusing them with a unique charm that captivates audiences of all ages.


The story of Uke-Hunt began with Slawson's love affair with the ukulele, sparked during live performances of Me First and the Gimme Gimmes' rendition of R. Kelly's "I Believe I Can Fly." This passion ignited a musical journey, culminating in the formation of Uke-Hunt. From humble beginnings playing on the bustling San Francisco Wharf as Uke Hammer, the band has evolved into a powerhouse trio, featuring Slawson's masterful ukulele and vocals, complemented by Randy Burk's percussion prowess and Jamin Barton's multi-instrumental talents.


Since their debut appearance on the acclaimed 2013 Fat Music for Fest People III compilation, Uke-Hunt has captured hearts with their enchanting sound. Their debut single, "The Prettiest Star," released in April 2014, was just the beginning. June of the same year saw the release of their self-titled album, a mesmerizing collection of reimagined classics. The momentum continued as Uke-Hunt embarked on their inaugural national tour the following year, enchanting audiences across the country with their spellbinding performances.


For weddings, corporate events, or any occasion deserving of musical magic, Uke-Hunt stands ready to elevate your experience with their signature style and undeniable talent. Book now and let the enchantment begin!
