Ukelele octet D’Ukes, who have members from Romford and Hornchurch, have performed in barns, a brewery and the Big Brother House – but their upcoming stint at the FA Cup will be a first.
The band, which includes Romford bass uke player John Mattock and Hornchurch musician Martin Burdikin, will provide pre-match entertainment for fans arriving at Colchester’s Weston Homes Community Stadium on November 9.
The match is between Colchester United and Sheffield United.
“We will be giving a football flavour to our regular set with songs such as These Boots Are Made for Winning, Offside Down, and one for the referee – Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” said John.
