I have three of their cds--"Sweetheart of the Radio", "Dancing with Petty Booka", and "Ukulele Lady." The first is country, the second is dance (retro styles), and the third is Hawaiian. It's only the last that actually has any ukelele on it and, like the other fella said, it's not like they do anything special with the instrument. However, they are lots of fun and seem to truly love the music they make. Their covers are a gas--especially the bluegrass version of "Material Girl."

I have a tape of theirs. I think it's their first album. It has "Pineapple Princess," "Tiki Torches at Twilight," "Under the Boardwalk," "Where the Boys Are," "Karma Chameleon" and "Que Sera Sera." Personally, I love it--but, then my tastes are odd. They sound like actress Carol Kane if she were cloned and singing with herself. Their English is often hard to understand and they play the ukulele unambitiously. But they have, at least to me, an undeniable, infectious charm.

I heard "Fujiyama Mama" but I don't recall hearing an ukes! I can't really judge them from one song, but "Fujiyama Mama" was, uh... interesting.
