maybe I should just buy his cd and get him to sign that...oh wait...you can't buy them here!

I left two voice mail messages in two days at the phone number listed in the story for San Antonio and haven't rec'd a call back. I just sent a message to the email listed. I hope there are tickets (well A ticket, I only asked for one) left for tomorrow's early show. The story said the 7 pm show is sold out!!!

I've never heard Jake play, but I'm a Parrothead (Jimmy Buffett fan) and I know Jake has played some concerts with Jimmy and that he is an awesome musician. I hope that I get a call or email back about the show! I called Aloha where he will be performing, and they are not handling the ticket sales, so I'm sitting here waiting and hoping...

Party

Wow I actually called ticket people over in texas last week to ask a few questions about jake's concert, but nobody picked up. But I just received a voicemail from them 10 minutes ago Saying they still had tickets available. So that's good for anyone who needs to buy some last minute.

damn, that shirt didn't come out in the video? dang...now I'm definitely kicking myself in the butt for not bringing my camcorder. We could have recorded the entire show! I'm uploading what vids I have to youtube as we speak.

anyhow, i gave him a UU shirt. How's that for UU representative of the year! He seemed happy and very thankful for the shirt. So if you see him...ask him why he isn't wearing it! Lol.

I was at the 3:00 show yesterday in San Antonio, and was it f'n awsome. It was in a smaller room which was great for everyone who went because there wasn't a bad seat in the house.

When Jake came out everybody clapped and shouted, he started off with Let's Dance, and proceeded to do what he does best. His performances' were amazing, and at the end he got a long and well deserved standing ovation.

After the show, there was a meet and greet with Jake. Really nice guy. Got his cd's and two of his dvd's, got his autograph on my ukulele, and my brother got his on the back of the ticket.

To all those who have a chance to see him, go. You will not be dissapointed, he surpassed my and everyone else expectations. I knew it would be good, I did not think it would be that great.

Man, I want a pic of him repping the UU shirt. It was an incredible show...we ended up picking up some shirts and cds and signatures on everything!

He'll be back in Houston with Jimmy Buffet, but it won't be the same setting as the yoga studio we were in here.

Great show here in San Antonio. We are headed up to Austin to see him again tomorrow, 4/15 at UT Cactus Cafe.
Us Texas folks need to get together and jam sometime.

Also, dont forget this weekend is the Texas Uke Fest (http://www.texasukefest.com/default.asp) as well as the Aloha Festival (http://www.alohasanantonio.com/id19.html)in San Antonio.

My wife bought me play loud Ukulele, and I got my Ukulele signed, and he stood for a pic with me.

I recorded everysond on my camera, and I will post up the vids when i get some more time.

04-15-2008, 08:02 AM
lol, i have been thinking the same thing!

obviously it isn't the only shirt he has now! maybe that's what makes him so good...I should have traded him!

Rod

I'm headed up for the show in Austin tonight. Would be cool if he was wearing the UU shirt you gave him.

hotnanas
04-15-2008, 08:42 AM
lol, call him out on it if he's still wearing the black shirt.

Actually, tell him to sign up here! Tell him that we want him, we need him, oh baby, oh baby!....wait..maybe just tell him to sign up.

Hey thanks bro,

I got the fish hook when my wife bought it for me a few years ago in Hawai'i.
They have them all over the place there too.

I think Jake travels solo, but I am not positive.

I will put up the vids from the show soon. That way, anyone that couldn't make it to the show will still be able to see what my wife and I saw.

Thanks for the interest.

Me, my wife, Rosemary and friend/fellow ukulele player, Kainoa Kamaka, drove up from San Antonio for the Austin show. We started off with food and drinks at Hula Hut and then made our way over to UT campus. As always, fantastic show. However, extra bonus this time around, Jimmy Buffett was there! He did not get on stage, as I believe he did not want to take any of the spotlight away from Jake. He stood quietly back by the bar the whole time while Jake was tearing it up. Below is about 10 minutes worth of video clips from the amazing show, as well as pics at the very end.

Ok, I finally put up the videos.
Sorry for the low visual quality, but I wanted to get the whole concert.
Anyway, head over to youtube, and look up "Jake Shimabukuro live in Dallas"
There are 14 videos covering his 15 songs.

Nice work Acabo'oe! What did you use to record all those videos?

So Jake said the word ukulele as
In Guam: ookoolehleh
In Texas: yookoolaylee

he changed it to fit where he was at!

Hey Davoo.

I used my Sony Cybershot DSC N-1 Camera.
It took me two Lithium Ion Batteries, and about 1/4 of my 256k memorystick Duo Pro to record the concert. I used the low quality video option, so that I could get the whole show. ( otherwise I would have only been able to put 12 minutes on that stick )

Yeah, I noticed that he said youkalaylee also. He probably did it so people would know what he was talking about.
When I say Ukulele ( ookoolaylay) here in Texas, no one knows what I am talking about. So then I have to spend a few minutes explaing what it is, and how the way that I say it is the correct way it is said.

I was considering asking Jake to say whats up to UU, but since you did it, I thought mabye it would be overkill.

Caught that too. He said ookoolehleh towards the end of our show. He kind of weened the us, the audience, off yookoolaylee as the show went on.
