C'est Magnifique

The Yesterukes took a field trip yesterday--a trip to hear ukulele prodigy Jake Shimbukuro in concert at the Newberry Opera House. Half of our band was able to go see the best ukulele player in the world. (Not everyone hung around for the photo.) He is truly amazing. So glad he was close enough to us that we could make the trip.

As we were leaving, we ran into some of our fans--fans of the Yesterukes. We said, "Just so you know....we can't play like that." And the gentleman walking beside us didn't miss a beat. He replied, "Not yet." We like his confidence in us! We hold no illusions, though. Jake Shimabukuro is a one-of-a-kind talent. We were just happy to see him in person.

For those of you were not with us, here is your chance to hear a song we saw him play yesterday:

He will be performing at the Spoleto Festival in South Carolina later in the spring. Maybe you can see him there.

C'est Magnifique, Peggy Lee, 1960
