Ukulele Musicians: O

If you play the ukulele your are a "Musician" who plays the ukulele – not simply a Ukulele Player. Because as you might have already figured out it more "Work" than "Play".


Mark Occhionero

I listen to a lot of Jazz.  I take my piano voicings from Oscar Peterson,  I like the style of Wes Montgomery (for my leads - the octaves), i like Charlie Mingus too....

Ohta Herb

Herb Ohta ( Ohta-San ), internationally renowned musician, began playing the ‘ukulele when he was only 7 years old. Influenced greatly by Hawaiian ‘ukulele virtuoso Eddie Kamae, this exceptional musician has elevated the ukulele from an accompaniment solo instrument status.

He extends his love of the ukulele from Hawaiian music to classical, jazz, rock, pop, and Latin music as well. Ohta-San’s diversity and style reflect his lyrical sense and is respected as the height of ukulele artistry. He is the only known master of the ukulele instrument to have over 300 tunes played on national radio.

Ohta Herb Jr

The ‘Ukulele is the best-known Hawaiian instrument. In the 1950’s and 60’s all the bands had ‘ukulele players. Some of the great musicians that made the instrument very popular were: Eddie Kamae, Ohta-san, Lyle Ritz, Don Baduria, Sr., John Lukela, Jesse Kalima, Kahauanu Lake, and Peter Moon.

Old Spice Boys

The Old Spice Boys are a comic swing trio. They play unusual, minimal instruments with virtuosity, charm and wit. From Byron Bay, 800 kilometres north of Sydney on the North Coast of New South Wales, they are big favourites at jazz, folk, blues and comedy festivals throughout Australia. Using just a ukulele, a tea-chest (one-string) bass and a solitary snare drum The Old Spice Boys stroll fearlessly through an extraordinary repertoire of their own hilarious songs alongside most unlikely interpretations of tunes by artists from Miles Davis to Ian Dury, from Prince to Bill Haley to John Coltrane.

Olopai Ty

Olomwaay! Welcome to my website. My name is Typhoon Olopai, I was born and raised on the beautiful island of Saipan. I’m proud to say that I am Refalawasch, a member of the Aliingeytau clan. From an early age I’ve been involved in music at some level. Starting as a guitar player in my youth, I later picked up ukulele and haven’t put it down since. I taught myself how to play both instrument and also learned by watching my aunts and uncles jamming with my father. All those weekend BBQ’s finally paid off!

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books!Peter Rhee
