Coming Soon: 2020 Ukulele Band of the Year

COMING SOON: It’s an epic showdown!

Attention, four-string warriors! Grab your tiny battleaxes and get ready to fight it out with skilled pickers and strummers from all over the world!

The Ukulele Kids Club (UKC), the charity that powers music therapy for hospitalized kids, has created the first annual Ukulele Band of the Year competition. The rules are as simple as the instrument itself:

  1. Be part of a ukulele band of 2 or more people.
  2. Create your best video of you doing your thing: playing your ukes in epic music video style.
  3. Upload your video to the UKC Facebook page (look for the Woobox tab) at
  4. Share, post, tag, hashtag, message and ping the heck out of your video, right from the UKC page.

The winner is decided by a simple vote (thumbs-up) count.

Besides worldwide bragging rights, the winner of the Ukulele Band of the Year wins an exclusive, custom-made trophy created by a premier Hollywood awards maker. Your band also becomes the RockStar supporter of the hospital of your choice. Learn more about our RockStar program here.

Full contest rules will be posted when the contest begins April 1. Check back here then – meantime, pick your best tune, practice practice practice, and get ready to go head to head with ukulele talents from around the globe, or around the corner.
