Western swing ukulele


The very tall Ray Benson with Jake Shimabukuro.

As I’ve discovered over the past few years, my “Comin’ Right at Ya” co-writer/subject/star Ray Benson knows pretty much everybody in and out of the music business — and not just the country music business, either. This was Ray last night with Jake Shimabukuro, the great Hawaiian ukulele star, who played the final night of his latest tour in Austin and afterward posted this picture to his Facebook page (even calling Ray “My big bro”).

I’m sure it was a very fine show; I still love his version of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.” And Ray being Ray, he probably talked Jake into doing a cameo appearance on whatever next Asleep at the Wheel project he might be working on.

Thank you Austin!!!
My big bro Ray Benson came out to the show tonight!
Had a blast 🙂 What a great way to end the tour! One of my high school friends came to the show tonight. Thanks Terry 🙂
Thanks to everyone for all the support this year!
Flying home tomorrow – looking forward to seeing my family 🙂
Good night…
Oh wait, I still have to pack. Haha!
