Whether he is performing, teaching, or just talking, his passion and artistry shines through. You cannot help being pulled into the music when Stu is around. He is the real deal." Daniel Hart, Executive Director, Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra "You haven't heard the ukulele unless you've heard Stu SHRED on the instrument from Brazilian choro to jazz to his dazzling instrumentals and soulful original songs." Marion Jacobson, ethnomusicologist and writer for The Atlantic "Masterful playing and creative arrangements- Stuart Fuchs is a Tour de Force on Ukulele with taste and a heavy finger on the talent button." Cathy Fink, GRAMMY Award Winner & Producer "I love Stukulele! His CD combines the playfulness of George Formby, the mastery of Jacob Do Bandolim, and a strong dose of originality. Stu respectfully pushes the ukulele to brave new heights, while keeping one foot rooted in a number of time honored traditions. Like a master juggler, he is part showman, part soul-man, part-instrumentalist, and he is definitely a part of the American Ukulele revival!" Lil Rev -Author of The Hal Leonard Ukulele Method Book Series, Entertainer, Touring Artist "Many artists give workshops and concerts. Stukulele stands out among them adding wit, intelligence, charm and ease to his teaching and playing style. Plenty of take-aways for both beginners and advanced players. Pittsburgh wants him back!" Marlene Parrish, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Steel City Ukuleles "The staff and children at Corning Childrens Center always look forward to time with Stuart. Whether he is here to perform for our young audience (3 month to 5 year olds)or to teach our school age students the basics of playing the uke, he is a hit! He is not just a talented musician, but also a sensitive, insightful, delightful teacher. If we were into grading, we would give him an A+!" Peigi Cook, Director Corning Childrens Center,
