Aloha! You've made it to Ukulele Heaven, where we will talk story about the marvels and merits of that unique Hawaiian 4 stringed wonder. We'll discuss its history, including the history of Martin and Kamaka ukuleles, we'll even take a tour of the Kamaka Factory (cool!), we'll talk about the great ukulele players, look at some really gorgeous ukuleles, and I'll suggest a few of my favorite CDs. Please look at our different web pages, including a new page about todays ukulele makers and . Sit back and take your rubbah slippahs off, put on some ukulele music (maybe some Brudda IZ, Uncle Eddie, Aunty Genoa, Troy, Ukulele Ike or "The Wizard of the Strings"), and ho'omanawanui (take it easy). My name is Brudda Bu, e komo mai (welcome) to Ukulele Heaven.
A little bit about myself...Several years ago I went to Hawaii for the first time and fell in love with the people, the land, and the music. I decided to pick up a ukulele (I had never played a musical instrument before) and before you could say "okole maluna", I was strumming away. I started collecting old ukuleles and now I have a small collection, some of which you can see here. I play in an ukulele band in San Rafael, The Ukulele Friends Ohana (UFO). How did I get the name "Brudda Bu"? It was Brudda IZ Kamakawiwo'ole who gave that name several years ago and it stuck.
In real life, I work as a health insurance agent. If you are in California and need good health insurance, please go here.
