Jake Live My Ears Are Still Ringing

One of the best shows by a single performer that I've ever seen in my life. Jake S, an absolute genius on the four strings. Soft as a whistle, loud as a train, Jake can be lightening fast, or pluck as smoothly as a jazz guitarist. The audience of about 1500 was entranced. I sat, sixth row, and watched every finger motion. And between songs, Jake entertained us with tales of Hawaii of old, and childhood memories. At one point he said, "I love playing ukulele for live audiences because the expectations are so low," which got quite a laugh.
