Someone is impersonating our favorite band

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain informed their mailing list today that “another organisation, claiming to have been playing in the UK and Europe since 1998, and to being “the cult sensation from London” is being promoted in Germany and Austria.”  This other group uses the name “United Kingdom Ukulele Orchestra,” is led by someone named Peter Moss, publicizes itself with quotes from nonexistent newspapers, uses photos of the actual UOGB in its promotions, and has taken money from people who thought they were buying tickets to UOGB shows.  Caveat emptor, as the Latin teacher in me says.

  1. I have received the UOGB’s mail too and thought this was rather extraordinary…
    A good thing the UOGB informs everyone, and you’re right to relay the information!

    That’s a wonderful thing about the internet, that we get news like this so quickly. I for one was very surprised to get the message, I hadn’t expected anything the least bit interesting to happen in the UK yesterday.
