    Perhaps their fame just didnt spread to the continent, but I never heard of any of their members before.

    Maybe the best thing is not having a mainstream commercially successful supergroup. Considering how many ukuleles have been sold around the world it is amazing that the instrument still has not found its way into more contemporary music. But in some ways that is more of a blessing.

    Unlike the guitar, which will always generate comparisons to better musicians, anyone can pick up a ukulele and play at whatever level and it is acceptable. I’m not saying there are not great ukulele artists out there, but there are so many more everyday ukulele players that are never compared. From purely a player’s perspective it is the most liberating instrument. If I hear a song, I’ll look up the chords, figure out the melody, and see how it works out. Lately I’ve simplified things, but it doesn’t really matter because I enjoy it and I make it my own.

    I'm a big advocate of this "super group" happening

    Back to my original suggested definition of a supergroup: It must include great song writers. Steve Stills, Neil Young, Richie Furay, and a great rhythm section, Buffalo Springfield.

    Jake and Tommy are virtuosos, no doubt, but they’re not great singers or songwriters. A super group could include musicians who are not virtuosos, a group such as the Beatles, or even the Band, though they were all solid musicians.
