    Willie K is an amazing musician entertainer and individual. He has so much talent!!!!
    I am fortunate to have heard him (first) in 2017 and been able to buy the same ukulele he is playing in the clip – an Oscar Schmidt Willie K custom designed by Arvi Ronan of Lahaina Custom Guitars. I bought it from Arvi and took it to Mulligans to get an autograph.
    So much story – but Willie asked if he could play it -I agreed of course –

    He meant on stage ….. apparently his Ukulele had been left behind that day!!! Serendipity!!!!!

    So Willie not only signed it but also ran it in for me …
    You can hear him playing a little on the KineKoolBand Youtube page ….. with one song dedicated to the Aussies in the room ( my wife and I 🙂 )

    ps – I only realised after watching it closely that the one in the clip is a 4 string concert – the custom that he played on stage before his Kanile’a was a five string tenor ukulele high & low G 🙂
