March 14th was an evening filled with laughter, feel-good moments, some tears, and of course, amazing music! Peace Love Ukulele, was an artfully mastered film that had the audience captured in the first few moments. With charming clips of Jake as a child to intimate interviews with Jake and his family members, the film had the entire audience at the edge of their seats. While this was Tad Nakamura's first feature-length documentary, it was clear by the audience's reaction that he had hit the ball out of the park.

As Jake took the stage after the film, he spoke of life on the road and how tough it is to not see your family regularly. Seeing the last two years of his life on the big screen brought him to tears. With that flood of emotion Jake appropriately began his performance with George Harrison's, "While My Guitar Gently Weeps."

After a few other tunes, the CAAM Ukulele Contest winner, Dominic "The Dominator" took the stage and performed a cover of Jake's, "Me & Shirley T." Following Dominic, Bruce and Jake took the stage with a duet of a classic Hawaiian number, "Wipeout." But the show stealing number of the night was a performance of "Pua Lilia" sang by Carol Shimabukuro, with her sons on back up ukulele. After a standing ovation from the audience, Jake closed out the show with "Bohemian Rhapsody."
