Some insight on our Uke Jackson…
Uke Jackson is a playwright, journalist, broadcaster and musician. His plays have been produced in different theaters in Manhattan. These include “Monster Time”; “The Secret Warhol Rituals”; and “Avenue Z Afternoon” which he adapted for a GM Mark of Excellence television production. His first play written as an adult, “Dristi Magic” a one act, was staged by the McCarter Theater Street Theater unit.
Over the years, he contributed short stories, essays and articles to magazines and newspapers across America, including the Miami Herald Sunday Magazine, NY Daily News, Philadelphia Inquirer, Berkeley Barb, Smithsonian, Travel & Leisure, and others. For many years, his light verse was a frequent feature in the NY Times.
During the 1980s he was a driving force behind several of the Plexus jazz art operas that were presented in Manhattan, Rome, Sardinia, and Dakar.
His River Tales project began as a public radio presentation of his storytelling and music, in 1995. It is now available as Tall Tales from the Watershed thru the Delaware Riverkeeper Network www.delawareriverkeeper.org and is available thru CDBaby.com. This project, geared for families with children, won a Parents Choice Award and led to the American Library Association naming him one of the Top 10 recording artists in the country.
Also as Uke Jackson, he is the author of the book and lyrics for the musical comedy Sex! Drugs! & Ukuleles! (currently re-titled Ukulele Land). He founded the New York Ukulele Ensemble and wrote many of the songs for their first album Ukulele Street.
Broadway Vampire is his first novel. The three songs which are part of the book, as lyrics, are available for download on his web site http://www.ukejackson.com
He divides his time between Manhattan and a home in Delaware Water Gap, PA.
