Jamie Houston, new owner of Duke Banjo Ukuleles, has had an association with the founder of Survivor Girl Ukulele Band Project (SGUB) Laurie Kallivig for several years (that's Laurie in the photo below). He originally learned about the project through attending Ukefest Geraldine in New Zealand, where he lives.

The project is bringing restoration and hope to survivors of human trafficking through the healing power of music and love.

Now Jamie is excited to announce that Duke Banjo Ukuleles is supporting SGUB and is asking you to do the same. Every DUKE10 purchased helps to further the cause and spread the word about what Laurie is achieving in India through her project. The easiest way for you to support Laurie and her work is to join the band and 'Uke It Forward®' for survivor girl ukulele band. This is a global invitation to all ukulele lovers, ukulele jams, ukulele orchestras, ukulele clubs, and ukulele superstars to support Survivor Girl Ukulele Band project. 

Please visit the SGUB website to learn more, and please donate if you feel this is an initiative you can get behind.

Christmas Duke arives in time

Big thanks to Jamie at Duke Banjo Ukuleles,
My wife, who obviously got the big hint for my Christmas gift ordered the Duke 10 and was advised that they only stood a slim chance of getting it to me in time but would pull out all stops to get it delivered to Perth Western Australia. And they did, it arrived on the 24th December whilst I was out but was received by my wife and whisked away before I had chance to notice. A wonderful surprise that was backed up with supper service from Jamie who did his utmost to get it to delivered. I already have 3 other Banjoleles but the Duke 10 is so beautifully set up its an absolute pleasure to play. If I could give it a 10 star rating I would, its wonderful instrument. Thanks again Jamie and by the way, the bag turned up a week or so later as promised.

I am absolutely delighted with my Duke 10. It is a lovely looking instrument and is such a pleasure to play. It has a great sound and I have so much to learn to get the best out of it.

Glad to hear you are so happy Douglas. Many thanks for review :-) Jamie.
Stunning sound

The duke 10 is a beautiful uke with a full and amazing sound. Would definitely recommend.

Thanks for your positive review Robyn, really appreciated, and I'm glad you like your DUKE10 so much - Jamie :-)
Great Sound

Sounds great which is the most important thing but finish and workmanship could have been better.


I love playing my Duke 10! Perfect size for me, love hearing all my jazz standards, folk and other songs I play on it. I love having a pick up, adjusting the drum head, and having its own strap and bag! Great purchase!

So happy you love your DUKE10 so much Rodolfo, and thanks for the awesome review Jamie.
