U900ウクレレ ライブ イン 香港
Live interactive puppet concert
U900 is the world’s very first woolen Ukulele duo dolls band. Their music is simple and light, and they enjoy bringing joyful and easy sweet music to everyone by playing the Ukulele. The group is well received by audience of all ages in Japan continuously ever since their debut three years ago. Recently, U900 has released a Michael Jackson tribute album, playing famous songs by the King of Pop and became famous around the world! In 2011, U900 performed in HK and the performances were well received by audience! Their music is widely spread around the globe through YouTube, and the “U900 effect” could easily be found around the world. In Thailand, Ukulele fans rushed to purchase Ukuleles with U900 stamps printed on. In the USA, the music videoof Twist and Shout by U900 was played in the 54th San Francisco International Film Festival to entertain guests at reception. In Spain, Diamond Head was on tour display at the finest mobile cinema –Puck Cinema Kalapana. In Israel, London Bridge was chosen and applied as an telecommunications advertisement’s background music with U900 showing up in it! In their performances in HK this March, besides performing famous songs, such as Thriller by Michael Jackson, Yellow Submarine by Beatles and Doraemon etc, the group will be in a fresher look and show the lively and energetic side to the audience.
Rabbit U was knocked out by The Venture's (USA Rock Band) guitar sound and wanted to be a guitarist. But guitars were too big for him and he had to give up the dream sadly. When he visited Hawaii, he met the little guitar – Ukulele and decided to be a professional in it! After returning to Japan, Rabbit U had a fateful encounter with Bear 900, who picked up Ukulele because of the same reason, during a street performance in a park. They became good friends and started a Ukulele band U900!

Ukulele (Hawaii Little Guitar)
In 19th century, a four-string little guitar named Ukulele, sometimes abbreviated to uke, was introduced to Hawaii by Portuguese immigrants and has become prevalent in Hawaii since then. Although it is small in size, it can be used to play children songs, popular songs, or even the complex jazz. Its string sound always brings people joy and happiness.
