Tickets: $15 in Advance and $20 at the door.
Ukulele virtuoso Stuart Fuchs (aka “Stukulele”) and his band of gypsies will perform an unforgettable evening of jaw dropping Ukulele music—including his “stunt ukulele” antics. His performances showcase a wide range of musical styles including Hawaiian, Gypsy Swing, Brazilian & Flamenco, Rockabilly Blues, Vaudevillian Comedy...and even “serious” music ala J.S. Bach.
Stuart’s musicality, singing and showmanship are wonderfully heartwarming & push the limits of what is possible on this four stringed instrument . In the hands of a virtuoso such as “Stukulele”, the tiny & humble Ukulele’s possibilities for musical expression become larger than life. This Ukulele (and Guitar) concert is guaranteed to make you smile.
“Masterful playing and creative arrangements- Stuart Fuchs is a Tour de Force on Ukulele with taste and a heavy finger on the talent button.” --Cathy Fink, GRAMMY Award Winner & Producer
“I love “Stukulele”! His CD combines the playfulness of George Formby, the mastery of Jacob Do Bandolim, and a strong dose of originality. Stu respectfully pushes the ukulele to brave new heights, while keeping one foot rooted in a number of time honored traditions. Like a master juggler, he is part showman, part soul-man, part-instrumentalist, and he is definitely a part of the American Ukulele revival!” --Lil Rev -Author of The Hal Leonard Ukulele Method Book Series, Entertainer, Touring Artist
“Stu is one of the greatest ambassadors for music I have ever met. Whether he is performing, teaching, or just talking, his passion and artistry shines through. You cannot help being pulled into the music when Stu is around. He is the real deal.” --Daniel Hart, Executive Director,
Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra
