Brian started playing 1 year ago when his high school offered him an internship with the Los Angeles Asian American Music Festival. After being blown away by Jake's YouTube video of "Let's Dance", he became very curious about the ukulele. At the festival, he was fortunate to meet Jake backstage where he asked him if he would play "Let's Dance" for the crowd. Jake played it, and after that he was hooked. He dropped playing guitar, and bought his first ukulele a week later.
Why do you want to play for Jake Shimabukuro? Playing for Jake would be a great honor and a dream come true. Watching him play and listening to his music really makes me want to play the ukulele. It would be such, such an honor to share the stage with him.
