From modest beginnings at informal sessions at Wellington institution Deluxe Cafe (beside Embassy Theatre on Kent Terrace), the Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra has ridden the crest of the diminutive instrument's revival.

Flight of the Conchords' Bret McKenzie was a founder member of the accomplished strummers.
