Jake and his manager stopped by the D'Addario string factory on Tuesday. I had the opportunity to film him giving a short concert for the factory workers, as well as a couple of lessons which will end up on our website. What an awesome player, you will never think of the ukulele the same way after watching him perform. He's a great guy too, he even signed the tiki that sits on my desk.

Very cool. We really love his music and he's amazing to watch play. Hope to see him perform live one day.

Lucky you!!!

Yeah, he's pretty coool - I saw him in Falls Church Virginia last December, the night before we went to Hawaii... how appropriate. He simply rocks out on "While my guitar gently weeps". Here's a link to his performance on the 'net:

It requires Quicktime to play it.

He will be playing at Tiki Terrace (again) on March 12.

I am sure Scott (Terrace owner and 'Kalani' on TC) wil be making a formal announcement soon.
