The Rinky Dinks in a lift!
Introducing The Rinky Dinks: Bristol’s first ukulele supergroup!
Comprising musicians drawn from a number of Bristol bands past and present
and representing musical genres as diverse as hip hop, metal, house and pop;
The Dinks aim to wrestle back all the best tunes from the ubiquitous guitar
The idea really took off when Mike Tripp (Trippy, The Kerbs) lent Joe Brown
(Trippy, Funky Onion) a ukulele over Christmas 2005. After a few rehearsals
with drummer Neil Watkins (T Minus 50, All Creatures) and Trev Maybury (The
Happy Testicles, Fez Townsend Big Band) on bass they played their first gig
at the Mayors Arms, Bristol in April 2006.
After that first gig, Ieuan Macey (Trippy, T Minus 50) was drafted in to
play bass and Trev took up the ukulele, creating the final line up of three
ukuleles, a bass guitar and a snare drum.
Since then The Rinky Dinks have continued to build their live reputation in
and around the South West and have played gigs as diverse as the Nailsea
Beer Festival and the Bristol Harbourside Festivals.
The Rinky Dinks are always busy adding fresh new songs to their set so make
sure you catch the Rinky Dinks’ unique take on pop music from the ‘30’s to
the ‘00’s soon.
