Artist Biography Available in: Tags
Uke-Hunt is the latest musical endeavor from Spike Slawson (whose past gigs include slinging bass for Swingin’ Utters and providing lead vocals for Me First and the Gimme Gimmes). Initially conceived as a straightforward project combining only ukulele and voice, this luau gradually evolved into much more than a party of one.
About a dozen years after picking up Hawaii’s diminutive answer to the guitar —years during which he often strummed one while serenading his family with classics and Italian lullabies—Slawson lit on the idea of Uke-Hunt as a vehicle to deliver heartfelt and personal renditions of some of his favorite tunes interpreted through ukulele. As he experimented with the medium and expanded his repertoire, he asked some of his talented Bay Area buddies (veterans of Filthy Thieving Bastards, Real McKenzies, The Ramshackle Romeos, RKL, and other projects) to join him on San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf for a little busking around, 808-style.
