  About us see more 8 posts
Don't be fooled by Bosko and Honey's cute and quirky appearance because they are one of the most original and entertaining ukulele acts around today. A husband-and-wife duo who reside in the tropical rainforest of Kuranda in Australia's Far North Queensland, Bosko & Honey joined the global ukulele explosion back in 2005 when Bosko decided to give Honey a ukulele for her birthday…
Charming and disarming, their "Ukulele Love-In" show is a truly unique experience. With undertones of cabaret, it is an intimate yet wildly entertaining experience - an engaging blend of musicianship, humour and the (very) unexpected!

Bosko & Honey first came to the attention of wider audiences in 2008 with their grass roots "Ukulele Safari" video project, which took them around the world visiting ukulele players in the USA, Europe and Japan. For a period of 11 months they travelled, jammed, interviewed and performed… documenting and sharing their experiences on YouTube as they went, all for the vicarious pleasure of others. Along the way they performed at numerous ukulele festivals and events... in New York, North Carolina, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Wisconsin, Tokyo, Helsinki, Vicenza (Italy), Gross-Umstadt (Germany), Aix-en-Provence (France) and Hollesley in the UK - to name a few. Their appearance in the acclaimed Canadian documentary "Mighty Uke" was filmed during this period and Bosko & Honey and their Ukulele Safari are also featured in the DVD extras.

Back in Australia Bosko & Honey got busy writing songs, developing their show, recording, performing and touring. For 3 months in 2010 they set off again on "Ukulele Safari Oz", a 10,500km road-trip by motor-home around the country. This time they flew 3 overseas performers to Australia to join them (and hooked up with 3 more along the way for a regular ukulele circus-on-wheels), a happening that really helped inject new spark into the Australian ukulele scene. In 2011 they released their highly-regarded CD of original songs, "Pretty Please", which showcases the natural acoustic sound of their ukuleles, with superb arrangements, vocals and an astonishing selection of genres including bossanova, country, punk and even heavy metal.

Having toured the east-coast of Australia three times since 2010, Bosko & Honey are now a festival favourite in Australia, having played every Melbourne Ukulele Festival (2010-2014), the Cairns Ukulele Festival (2011/2012), The Blue Mountains Ukulele Festival (2012/2014), the Canberra Ukulele Festival of Fun (2011), the Brisbane Big Uke Jam (2011), the Newcastle Newkulele Festival (2012/2014) as well as mainstream events including Festival Cairns (2011/2012), Kuranda Roots Festival (2012/2014), Milton Escape Arts Fest (2011), OnEdge Arts Festival (2011/2012), The Sit-Down Comedy Club (2012) and even a Motorcycle Show (Kuranda, 2012).
In 2013 they did an 8-gig tour of New Zealand's North Island with The Nukes.
2014 is shaping up to be a busy year with a new full-length album in the works and plenty of festivals coming up... including their first trip to the NT for the 2nd Mandorah Ukulele & Folk Festival!

Bosko and Honey both have day jobs and consider the ukulele a real blessing, it giving them the opportunity to connect with so many wonderful people and providing them with a great excuse to travel. They like to put their feet up as much as possible and really enjoy hosting house concerts at their home in Kuranda.

Come and "Feel the Love" with "Bosko & Honey's Ukulele Love-In"…

"BIG COUNTRY, LITTLE UKULELES... FOR A SMALLER, FRIENDLIER WORLD":

"Refugees from the metropolei of Melbourne and Tokyo, Bosko & Honey found love, marriage and peace in Tropical North Queensland… but when they discovered the diminutive ukulele their lives changed in unexpected ways.

"They connected with ukulele enthusiasts the world over via the internet, and managed to travel the globe for 11 months - 'ukulele couch-surfing' their way through 14 countries and 3 continents - for a mad yet charming online video project called Bosko & Honey’s Ukulele Safari 2008.

"In 2010 they intend to repay a fraction of the kindness they were shown by flying two of their overseas hosts to Australia for a three-month ukulele road-trip.

"Gensblue from Japan and Yalego from France will join Bosko & Honey on an expedition of exchange and goodwill... performing and documenting as they go.

"Bosko & Honey haven’t told anyone they can’t drive, yet they will attempt to take this multi-lingual ukulele circus (including a camera-person and the odd ukulele hitch-hiker) on an unlikely 20,000km odyssey around Australia… by motorhome.

Jo Bangles prepares for Ukulele Safari Oz!

"They will travel from Cairns to their home in Kuranda (30 kilometres as the crow flies), by taking the very long road indeed – and visiting ukulele folk, ukulele clubs, schools and communities right around the country!

"Join B&H and the Safari Crew as they discover and connect, attempting to reach beyond difference: to hear the music and the stories, the depth of which (the fun, the beauty...) lies barely concealed within the humble ukulele... and ourselves."

Objectives:

• To promote the ukulele and help develop awareness of its accessibility.

• To bring world-class ukulele performers from other countries to every Australian capital city as well as regional towns.
• To promote interaction among people from diverse geographic, economic and cultural backgrounds within the context of sharing music.
• To document the journey for global broadcast on the internet and other media.

This is where B&H will post any bits and pieces about theory and techniques they've picked up along the way.
Things that have been useful to them in their own ukulele discovery...

First up is a FRETBOARD MAP plotting the "CAGFD" system.
It's based on the "CAGED" system for guitar, and Bosko has included fairly detailed explanations.

This might be considered "advanced", but if you are a beginner with an inquiring mind, understanding it will enable you to work out ANY major, minor or dominant 7 chord - each in 5 different positions on the ukulele fretboard...
All without recourse to a chord book.

You may not know that we have created a new YouTube account called UKULELE MUSIC VIDEO...
We've been enjoying using the camera and editing so much, we decided to have some fun showcasing original ukulele songs from some of the terrific ukulele artists we meet.

A Selection of videos from Ukulele Safari 2008

Bosko & Honey's Ukulele Safari 2008 is a series of videos being uploaded to our YouTube channel and posted here which are the result of meetings with ukulele players (amateur and professional alike) around the world.

We recorded Songs and Interviews with ukulele enthusiasts, performers, collectors and makers... and also documented the Festivals and ukulele events we attended.

Over a period of 11 months we travelled from Australia to Japan, the USA, the UK and Europe - including Finland, Austria, Greece, Italy, France, Belgium, The Netherlands and Germany.

Safari 2008

We attended and documented Ukulele Festivals in New York (New York Uke Fest 2007 and 2008), Italy (Vicenza 2008), the UK (Hollesley 2008) and Germany (Gross-Umstadt 2008), as well as visiting dozens of ukulele clubs and groups around the world.
Another project we started in 2008 is Ukulele Music Video, where we shoot and edit video clips for other ukulele performers.

The Safari was funded primarily through our personal savings, and would not have been possible if it weren't for the support we received from our hosts at each destination... especially in terms of accommodation.
We are eternally grateful for this and all the other forms of support and encouragement we received on the road!
