to the day Israel Kamakawiwo'ol recorded his version of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow"

In 1988, Israel Kamakawiwo'ole called the recording studio at 3am and said he has to record a song right away. 15 minutes later, Israel arrived at the studio. The studio owner, Milan Bertosa said, "And in walks the largest human being I had seen in my life."

“I put up some microphones, do a quick sound check, roll tape, and the first thing he does is 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow.' He played and sang, one take, and it was over."

Today, Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's version, is the most requested one of this classic song.

Tomorrow is the 79th birthday of an artist who has changed a lot of our lives.
His song writing collaboration with John Lennon remains the most successful in history. He has an extraordinary gift for melodies and is a self taught musician who plays the bass guitar, keyboards and drums.
Say Happy Birthday to Sir James Paul McCartney.
He is a musical icon for the ages.


Want some summer fun??
Come to Liberty & Union Park in Taunton next Thursday evening and hear the BIGGEST & BEST ukelele band ever.
THE UNLIKELY STRUMMERS will be performing from 6-8pm and would just love to play for everyone. It will be a rockin' good time!


PRINCE Born June 7th, 1958
Today would have been his 63rd Birthday. He was an American songwriter, musician and actor to name just a few of his many talents. He was a rare performer who could play, on a professional level, all the instruments he required in his music. Versatility was his trade mark. His early career began with funk & soul. However later on he would incorporate jazz, punk, heavy metal and hip hop into his music. His talents live on in his music.

I read this eloquent proclamation from Yamaha Corp. this morning and it struck home in many ways.Please read it and see if you agree.

Now, and always, Yamaha categorically condemns the long-standing and systemic

Music teaches us an invaluable lesson: to open our ears, and listen;

to open our hearts, and feel; to open our minds, and understand.

That we have the power to come together.

That we have the power to transform our experience.

That we have the power to be better.

Now, and always.


We care about all about our customer's and student's health and safety.

Eastern Music's Kid's Ukelele class is Rockin' & Rollin' and having a blast!


Hi, everyone!

Just in case you're not on Facebook, or don't see the post right away, Stu Fuchs will be doing a workshop and concert at Eastern Music, on Saturday, March 30, at 2:00.

Stu is great fun to work with, and will teach fun new techniques that can be applied to any level of playing, so whether you're a relatively new beginner or have been playing for a couple of years, you'll get a lot out of this. He's also a terrific musician, and his concert alone will be worth the ticket price.

Be sure to get your tickets asap - this will probably draw folks from Boston, as well as points south. Here's the link:


See you soon!
