UFO’s rendition of Vance Joy’s Riptide attracted 531 votes in the hotly contested battle for a slot on the Cairns Ukulele Festival program, winning the opportunity to perform on the same program as Abe Lagrimas Jr, six-time Grammy award winner Daniel Ho and the Janet Seidel Trio.

The 11-strong group, which comprises some of the most talented and enthusiastic students from Uke4Kids program, never fails to impress audiences with their contemporary repertoire, sophisticated arrangements and high-energy performances.
