One part pop ukulele outfit, one part hooligan prog rock experience and one part beer-soaked Irish drinking song mob, Lloyd United blends unique singing and songwriting talent with a party-til-you-drop attitude that infuses every live performance with more fun than you should be allowed to have in a club. With raunchy and psychedelic wah-wah-drenched ukulele riffs the group brings a melodic sensibility and a unique instrumental take to established rock and pop favorites and delivers original compositions that will have you singing along by the second chorus. http://lloydunited.com/lu/

Dear Fish, Just caught up on a Google Alert from 3/9 & saw that you mentioned us for Lucky7s that night. It was an absolute cracker of a night - I ended up on the bar & we had the place grinning from ear to ear. It was one of the best shows of our 1st US tours in terms of fun!
Thanks so much for mentioning us. Really appreciated. We're coming back to the US in September & it's always good to know that someone has seen the name before (they may not remember it, but it could be buried somewhere down in someone's psyche!).
Much appreciated. - Max The On Fires (Australia)
12/2/2010 It's making me nostalgic. I miss Lucky 7s!!
I'm hoping we'll be back in April for the 3rd time at that wonderful little bar. We're back in Australia now (& it's summer; yay!).
Just wanted you to know your blog gets read all over the world! Best, - Max
