I’ve really liked this guy for a long time and thought I would just spread the love. Jake Shimabukuro is the baddest ass uke player on the planet. I totally had a Wayne’s World moment during this cover. And if you’re not old enough to understand that reference then go watch Wayne’s World!
With just a couple of days left before 2011 I thought it was time to take a minute and say thanks. It’s been a great year for all of us and we’ve accomplished quite a bit. Here are the high points as I recall them:
- Wrote, recorded, and released Forever Never Maybe
- Went from one Youtube video w/ less than 100,00 views to twenty videos w/ 1 million+ views
- David graduated and obtained his bachelor degree from Expression College
- We got endorsed by Jim Dunlop; maker of fine musical accessories
- Got to meet and hang with a bunch of professional/more successful musicians
- Played live shows!
And all because you guys actually like what we do. Which is very humbling; amidst the infinite amount of available media out there, you (the fans) have been extremely supportive and encouraging to us. We appreciate all the love, a lot. And just know that we are only going to raise the bar for 2011.
Here are some pictures from our live shows. There will be more to follow, I just have to keep going through them and get them uploaded.

We will be playing a show Thursday December 23rd at the Mojo Lounge in Fremont. There is no cover and it is 21 and over (sorry yougins). We are playing a full forty minute set so bring your rockin shoes because I’m sure you’ll be tappin’ some toes. And be sure to check out Mancandy who so graciously invited us to play.
As an added incentive, if you made it up to Cafe Du Nord for the last show be sure to make it Thursday because we’ve changed the show up quite a bit. THERE’S FOUR OF US ON STAGE NOW! What does it mean? Who is this mysterious fourth harbinger of rock? There’s only one way to find out…
In other news, as stated in a previous post we’ve been invited to the 53rd annual Grammys this coming February, so if you’re going or planning to be the in area be sure to hit us up. More info can be found at the Recording Academy’s website. I just wanted to mention it again because we got the tickets… AND IT’S PRETTY FRIGGIN EXCITING!
Thanks for being patient everyone. We’ve been pretty busy lately, but we did manage to put up another absolutely kickin’ cover song recently. If you haven’t checked out Rocketeer yet be sure to swing on by the David Unger Music Youtube page. As always I will embed the video below for the lazy and the forgetful. We love you all the same. ; )
Click the “like” (aka the thumbs up) button on the page. Believe it or not that helps us out quite a bit. Isn’t the internet a funny little monster? (Btw that’s rhetorical, don’t answer.)
Also there’s is good news from the charts!
Greetings children of the interweb. I must apologize for the delays in awesome content, but alas we’ve been pretty busy lately trying to get the next few months worth of DUM ironed out for ya. We are trying to get in to a certain music/film festival in Austin next year, but more on that later.
NEW VIDEOS! That’s right we do have a couple of new videos of us playing live that have been posted and we plan two release two more by Friday. THAT’S FOUR VIDEOS IN ONE WEEK! You might call us crazy, but our fans our worth it.
Also, there is a new video page here on the website. Be sure to check the tabs up top. We thought it would be a cool way to consolidate our videos for all of those who don’t COUGH! SUBSCRIBE to our Youtube channel. Here is:

In other news, the title track off of the new album Forver Never Maybe hit radio this week and has done really well in the first three days. It debuted at twenty three on the Hot AC Top 30 Indie Chart, which is awesome! And as always we will keep you posted on the progress we are making regarding the tried and true medium of radio.
Also, we debuted at ninety on the Hot 100 Singles chart.
Fear not though young weblings, there will be more to come in the next few days. Stay tuned and stay posted.
Love and Awesome Holiday Food to all,
