Original indie pop/folk/rock band, with ukuleles instead of guitars. Melodic and catchy songs, usually sentimental and/or quirky.
Waste of Aces - origin
When three musician friends started messing around with ukuleles, liquor, and a 4-track inside a 30-foot yacht, the band Waste of Aces was born, and strummed onto the underground ukulele scene (yes, there is one) with a bunch of unusual but catchy melodic pop, folk, and jazz tracks. Initially silly and simple in conception, the band grew in ability and began to tackle more complex compositions. The argument - should there be drums? - was tossed around, and as a result several guest drummers sit in on a number of songs, expanding the sound of the band. Many other talented guest artists are often brought in to enhance the variety of instruments/vocals. But the core elements of Waste of Aces remain Jeff's sensitive songwriting/vocal abilities layered on top of Jun's complex fretless bass tracks.
