Type: Ukelele Orchestra
North of Bombay is a group of eight musicians from all over Auckland who share a love for all things musical. Six of the members are already music teachers whilst the other two enjoy making music as a hobby. Together they formed North of Bombay in order to play and sing together. These musicians aren’t afraid to show off their talents and they love nothing more than to perform in front of large audiences who enjoy good music and, for those who know the words, singing along.
Songs are played with a variety of ukuleles: 6-string, baritone, bass, concert, soprano and tenor, resulting in rich, layered music. Instruments include, African drums, glockenspiel, percussion, melodica and flute. Vocal harmonies are a strength of the group
North of Bombay have a repertoire of songs starting in the sixties up to the present day and it’s constantly increasing. Of course, they also compose their own songs when they’re not too busy re-living their glory days and play these alongside the more well-known songs.
North of Bombay have just returned from a South island tour performing in vineyards, pubs, community venues. They have performed around Auckland and Waiheke at public and private functions, festivals and birthday parties.
Ideal for: totally different theme setting entertainment for corporate function, private party, wedding
