"Really nice... very good CD!"
- Chisato Tsuwano, Rolling Coconuts Magazine, Japan

"WOW is all I can say! Not very often do you get a CD which captures the essence of live performance and the nuances of touch, style and musicality! Yours does all that and more!! Have to is the first ukulele CD I have wanted to hear over and over again!! You have truly motivated me to go and play more. Seriously a crackin' album!"
- Joanne Cocking, Music Therapist, Peninsula Music Services, Australia

"... freakin' awesome... nice mix of styles, not a bunch of 'oh look at us we play the uke... ' just cool tunes.. good stuff"
- Butch 'Kharmachanic' Pierce, GA, USA

"... blown away by the CD titled "Pretty Please" by Bosko & Honey... this is one of the best uke albums in the last decade!
Highly recommended!"
- Terry 'Romantic-san' Sasaki, Australia

"Why I like [Bosko & Honey's] new CD:
... respect [to] the natural sound of the uke...
... each note is well played and has its own subtle vibrato if needed, musically correct...
... balanced song parts & instrumental parts...
... Ukulele itself stays the main subject...
... balance between strumming parts and plucking parts & and the plucking parts are very, very nice...
... There is something for everybody, inventive & original..."
- Herman Vandecauter, Belgium.

"Damn it! You killed my heart!
Really great album...
Odyssey... wow! What a cool chord progression.
Tuck Me In... Please tuck me in! I can't stop laughing! Kill meeeee!!
Ukulele Love-In... [Bosko] is a genius or dickhead... hahaha!
Of course all songs are really great!!
[Bosko & Honey's Pretty Please] and Daisy [Dobuyuki's] new [CD] these two are the best in the world now...
Congratulations, great CD!!"
- Motohiko 'Gensblue' Ozaki, Japan.

"Better Ukulele Music than you've heard yet
Sure, I love Jake's playing. Iz was a great musician and we all owe him for making the Ukulele safe for everyone in the world to love again. James Hill is a superior player. Find the movie, "Mighty Uke" and find out more.
BUT, Bosko & Honey are a duo with more than just being uke players going for them. This is a uke record that is beautiful and essential for any music lover. It doesn't matter if you like the uke as an instrument as long as you enjoy superior duet playing and strong melodies.
All you will hear are two ukes and two voices but you won't be thinking about that. You'll be swept away by the amazing music.
I'm old enough to remember when the Beatles records came out one by one. I remember a time when my friends and I all waited eagerly for a new Stones record to appear. My favorite instrumental musicians are Brad Mehldau, Keith Jarrett and Bill Frisell. I put these folks on the same level as those three."
- Alan Thornton, USA

"Bosko and Honey are youtube sensations from Australia and have been on the video and live scene for about 6-7 years. They are a husband and wife team (I think), and they tour and play at ukulele festivals. Their music is difficult to describe. Sometimes joyous and uplifting, other times serious, but for the most part, it's ukulele with a hearty side order of satire and wit.
The songs are as catchy as the flu in February, and after one listen to this entire CD, you won;t be able to stop hitting repeat until the button is broken.
"Tuck Me In" is an internet "hit", and one of their live centerpieces. An avant garde, punk lullaby with Honey yelling to be tucked into bed while Bosko plays a ukulele lullaby.
What is most original about their musical style is the percussive nature of the ukulele. Although Honey is the "rhythm" ukulele to Bosko's masterful soloing, the songs have a characteristic percussive chunking and patter that is hard to describe, but infectious.
I urge you to search this couple on youtube and watch their playful and fun videos. They did a tour about 4 years ago of the world and stopped in to see other youtube ukulele stars, luthiers, etc., and it's really quintessential viewing for anyone partial to this lovely four stringed instrument. My favorite is with kharmachanic when they play "Dancing In The Moonlight", of King Harvest fame. It's a frolicking fest full of mirth and "aloha", right there in Butch kharmachanic's living room. When Bosko and Honey arrive from "down under" to see these other youtube ukulele players in person in their own hometowns, it's like an actor looking directly at the camera and breaking out of the third dimension, looking at the audience and showing the viewer that, it's a small world, indeed. One internet performer travels to meet another, while we sit back and watch. It's so unique, and the charm of Bosko and Honey cannot be overstated.
Bosko and Honey's CD is fun, inspiring, and worthy of your repeated listening. The spirit and talent in their videos comes through in this recording. Pop it into your iPod or play it through your dashboard speakers and it'll lift your spirit as high as a summer cloud. A+"

This is a great album. A bit classical, a bit contemporary, definitely modern, a bit rock (dare I say metal) and a whole lot of awesome! You'll forget you're listening to a "ukulele" album.
Simply great music.
