What do the Grateful Dead and Don Ho have in common? Not much, with the exception of the Whole Earth Nuclear Ukulele Orchestra. This army of St. Louis pickers put down their guitars and picked up their ukes for some surprisingly groovy renditions of Grateful Dead songs in the KDHX studios.
The Whole Earth Nuclear Ukulele Orchestra features members of an array of St. Louis jam and rock bands, including 710, Grateful Bobs, Jake’s Leg, Naked Groove, Racketbox and Madahoochi. The musicians got together for a benefit for KDHX at 2720 Cherokee on February 17, 2010.
