It is tempting to hope that they tiptoed through the tulips to get here. But alas, no.

The New Zealand band, the Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra is in San Diego Tuesday as part of a 40-city tour across the U.S. The eight-member band will perform at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

Their website describes them this way: "Their signature sound features high-octane ukulele solos, heavenly multi-part vocal harmonies and an impressive range of ukuleles. Flamboyant outfits, delightful theatrical effects and convivial crowd participation complete the night." Well, then.

Concert attendees should expect to hear a wide range of music, from Justin Timberlake to Dolly Parton and Salt 'n' Pepa.
