    Default He won't post it himself so I will

    Hey everybody -

    There's a ukulele player out there who exhibits more joy and passion in his instrument than anybody else I know. He would admit he's not a Jake-level player, and he's no Josh Groban in his singing...

    ...but his infectious glee and sense of humor make him my very favorite performer out there. I'm also VERY proud to call him my friend. He's Uncle Elvis, and he is just an all-around great human who deserves good things to happen to him.

    Here's the thing - he is raising funds through IndieGoGo to cut an album. His humility, I'm sure, is keeping him from posting the link in here, but I have no qualms.

    I would encourage everybody to support new performers like UE by doing whatever you can to lend a hand. Here's the link to his IndieGoGo project:

    I've put in a little bit to see this dream come true. Can you do the same?

    Thanks so much.

    Damned, by the time I have enough money to be a Kadunga next month, his goal may be already reached. I'm gonna have to pm the guy to see if I can be a late Kadunga.

    Keep giving! If he gets $1 million, he will bring us all to Bermuda for the CD release party.

    Definitely gonna. And I've got a plan brewing. Stay tuned.
    Kala KA-ACP-CTG. Had the tenor version. Decided tenor's not for me. Got the concert.
    Mainland Classic Concert Solid mahogany, no bling, beautiful.
    Bonanza Concert Oreo Slimline black walnut and cherry CNC marvel.
    Ohana SK-39 Great little Martin wannabe.
    Mahalo Smiley Face. Cute little bugger and Jake signed it!
    Kala KA-15S. Good starter.
