Thanks for posting this. I see he will be in Provo Utah in Feb. so I might have to get a ticket.

Joyful Uke

Wonderful honor for Jake, and a good way to help the public become aware of him and of what a ukulele can do musically.

Nice article and honor. We're going to see Jake this evening at the University of Conn. I always enjoy his shows. He always seems to be having the best time of anyone in the room. Find something you love to do and you will never work a day in your life. That definitely applies here.
Going to count the fist bumps between Jake and the young man on bass! I may bring a calculator!!!!!
