The magnificent seven of the ukelele world, Plucking Different, will be living up to their name this weekend in Swindon.

Following their Plucking Awesome Tour around the UK, headlining several festivals, last year, the seven-piece electric ukulele band are heading for the Beehive, on Prospect Hill in Old Town tonight from 8.30pm.

Rhe band play songs from Muse, Mumford & Sons, The Waterboys, White Stripes, Gogol Bordello and Guns N Roses all in their own distinctive style.

The band are: Animal on ukulele, mandolin, mouth-harp and mini sax, Brendan Downes-Hall on percussion, Dominic Manning on bass and keys, Huw Janus on vocals, eight-string tenor ukulele, riffs and bass, Jon Collins on vocals, ukulele and kazoo, Pixie on vocals and ukulele and Mr Waistcoat on ukulele.

The band got together in 2014 and created a set that has an eclectic mix of infectious feel-good songs that unleash electric ukulele mayhem at festivals and intimate gigs.

Plucking Different will be playing a free gig at the Swindon pub.

On Saturday there will be a complete change of pace at the Beehive as the ever popular Shocks of Mighty take to the floor. The DJs will be on the decks for a nostalgic trip back to the sounds of old skool and reggae. Shocks of Mighty will be a real winter warmer gig bringing the hot summer vibes to cold, wintery Swindon. It is free entry to see the DJs in action. The Shocks Of Mighty Sound System is owned by Johnny Rench, and the club night run by Erin Bardwell and Pop-A-Top Records.
