This is a brief medley of some of the many, many songs that sound great on the ukulele!
I love to play/share songs at weddings, parties, receptions, and other indoor or outdoor functions. You can select from over 200 well-known songs ranging from Hawaiian favorites to Beatles, Elvis, Beach Boys, and songs of today. I will also learn special requests. I provide my own amplification, and have battery powered equipment for occasions like a special wedding on the beach. Please contact me and let’s plan some special music for your next function.
Here’s just a sample - check them out and subscribe to my YouTube channel!
