Performers

Ukulenny

Lenny San Jose, aka Ukulenny, is a performer/educator based in Oakland, California. He grew up in San Diego to the sounds of Green Day, Weezer, The Beatles, Boyz II Men, and the entire Motown catalog. In his performances, Ukulenny especially enjoys bringing the sounds of Stevie Wonder, Bob Marley, and Hawaiian reggae to the ukulele. His dynamic instrumentation of uBASS, ukulele, beatboxing, saxophone, and vocals allows him to create a full band atmosphere that fits in his roller bag. In 2019 he released his first official full-length album, “Saturday Morning Ukulele,” and can’t wait to record more music in the new decade. He now performs solo with his one-man band around the Bay Area, leads jams with his SF Uke Jam crew of Cynthia Lin, Abe Lagrimas Jr., and Steven Espaniola, and with his tiki bar band Ukulenny and Dos Pogi Boys (Jerome Sicat and David Kelly).
