Proof positive of the gorgeous sound of the Pono.

Bruno's a true musician. Rare bird in today's young recording artists. Hawaii born and raised, if I'm not mistaken.

And another impeccable setup and delivery by the always lauded HMS.

That was a great performance! Loved the sound that uke puts out. My pono is not my most expensive ukes but it is my favorite "go to" when playing for myself.

Thanks for posting this, Andrew. I always like to hear about the nice things and good thoughts that come out of your shop. And I love the song, too.

Great sounding uke!!

I'm glad to see that people are playing non-koa wood ukes...maybe trying to get more of the mini-guitar sound?? Just like the Cordoba and Pepe Romero working together, maybe the uke is evolving

Dont know what sounded better, the uke or his voice! Both beautiful!

He sings like Michael Jackson did when he was about 12. And I say that as a compliment.
