The Uptakes

Friday, 27 January 2023 @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm

Wellington blues and funk band

Sgt. Pepper and his Lonely-Hearts Club Band brought happiness through its music, even causing troops in World Wars I and II to stop fighting. In August 1958, Sgt. Pepper died of a heart attack in the middle of a performance. He left the band’s magical musical instruments to the town; so long as they remain in Wellington, its people will live happily ever after.


Sgt. Pepper left his musical legacy to his handsome and good-hearted grandson, Louis Thompson-Munn. Louis formed a new Lonely Hearts Club Band called The Uptakes with his three best friends: brothers Nick, Steve, and Chris. Louis and the three brothers picked up Sgt. Pepper’s magical musical instruments and played the sweetest soul and funk music to ever grace the ears of humans, and with it they ensured happiness and good vibes remained in Wellington forever.
