Brook Adams


"If ukulele is an orchestra in a lunchbox, this Mya-Moe soprano is like a French picnic in a basket"


Brook is a ukulele madman with a strong voice and guitar chops too. He describes his collection of novelty songs, tv themes, modern pop and swing-era classics as a musical cartoon of the 20th century. Add warm tenor vocals and jazzy R&B flavored guitar for an evening of great entertainment. His latest gimmick is playing the Beatles' ABBEY ROAD album start to finish on ukulele. Brook has played a lot in the Pacific Northwest where he makes his home. His festival resume includes the Northwest Folklife, Seattle Bumbershoot, Oregon Country Fair, and the Portland Ukulele Festival. He played at the Portland premiere of the film Rock That Uke and opened for Japanese ukulele queens, Petty Booka. His current CD is called Tunnel Of Sharks, which he performs with his band the Swingin' Marmalukeys.
