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.
