True to their name, Ukulele Scramble play a lot of mashups. When they're not twisting styles from across the decades -- and centuries -- into knots, they're playing ridiculous segues, and repertoire that was definitely never meant to be played on the uke. When's the last time you heard ukulele versions of classical compositions by Charles Ives or Amy Beach? Ukulele Scramble did both, and well! -- New York Music Daily
"Richard Perlmutter and Robin Hoffman of The Ukulele Scramble are talented, fun, and a joy to work with. We invited them for a performance and then back again for a learn-to-play event and both times we were overwhelmed with the community response. Their programs attract people of all ages and we can't wait to have them back!"Alison Horner, Reference Librarian, Stevens Memorial Library
