Ukulele Bill

Ukulele Bill

Ukulele Bill and the “Great Uke Salute” appeals to anyone ages 3 to 100. As part of an entertaining and fun show, Ukulele Bill plays songs from the four Ukulele Craze periods in America, demonstrating multiple types of ukuleles, and talking about each song and the time period when it was popular. The audience is encouraged to bring its own ukes and join in a group playing and singing of “Sloop John B.” Bill’s program also features a ukulele drawing several times during the performance when 3 or 4 audience members can win their very own ukulele. Four different sizes of ukuleles are on display for the audience to try and see which size they might like best. In addition to answering questions, the performer provides handouts with information on ukulele websites and ukulele building (Ukulele Bill builds his own ukuleles). As Ukulele Bill says, “The ukulele is truly a happy little instrument that can play songs from almost any genre and time period.”
