Joe Brown can justifiably lay claim to being the current King of the Ukulele. He has been cited by some of the world's biggest rock performers as a world class player. The top two ukulele performed favorites world-wide are 'Over The Rainbow', recorded by thousands of people, and 'I'll See You In My Dreams' recorded and popularized on uke by only Joe. The ukulele has been an instrument Joe has always loved and played. In 1963 it even got him into big trouble. Joe was one of the very first artists to have a record banned by the BBC - his recording of the old George Formby song 'With My Little Ukulele In My Hand' performed on the ukulele was deemed way too risqu! In 2006 Joe was approached by major USA ukulele manufacturer KALA, the direct result of ukulele sales having increased world-wide more than tenfold since the Concert For George. Kala credited Joe with much of that success and they asked him to design and endorse his own Signature Series.
