After that anything could happen and it probably will when the Big Muffin Serious Band take its theatrical style of music to the Dome on Saturday.

Touted as “easily the second to best ukulele band to come out of Te Awamutu in living memory” the Muffins play instruments and incorporate musical styles found in bush band and skiffle traditions.

The original line-up involved tea-chest bass, ukuleles, junk instruments, children’s toys and tight vocal arrangements.

That line-up has remained unchanged from the band’s formation last century to the present. Gig-goers can expect the Big Muffin Serious Band’s background to spill out a more visual and more humorous street performance style than usually found at a folk/blues show.
