“Singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Cali Rose, has produced a delightful and eclectic brew of fun, playfulness, intelligence and wit. Her piano and guitar playing is also excellent and she is joined by many talented musicians on this CD. She may be goofy, but she sure is good!”

— Picklehead Music

As I have always said since I met you, “I go to the class, because you are cheaper than a psychiatrist, and much more fun.

“On the 15 songs here Cali showcases her solid uke chops (both strumming and picking) and her warm and friendly vocals.  A clutch of standards share the CD with some well-crafted and hummable originals.  Highlights include the title song, Cole Porter’s ‘True Love,’ ‘On Green Dolphin Street,’ ‘Soup Du Jour,’ ‘Enjoy Yourself’ and a swingin’ version of the Andy Griffith TV Theme songs with her uke licks standing in for the famous whistle.  Other top tracks are her songs ‘Happy Ever After? No Such Ting’ and ‘Maui Nights.’  Expertly produced by Rick Cunha with a supporting cast of fine studio musicians, this CD is a gem.” [Flea Market Music]

Thanks, Cali, for all you do to keep us happy, playing our ukes, during the pandemic.

I SO enjoyed your workshops last weekend, as well as my colleagues from R. Cucamonga Senior Center. We shared with our teacher/facilitator (she had to cancel out). She’s now having me help teach the strums. Believe it or not, within 2 practice sessions at home, I had a break-through. I could actually play the latin rhythm and both count it out and sing with it. I am so excited; I can’t believe it. I’ve been playing for only a year. If it weren’t for your great dialog and demonstration, it would NEVER have happened. You’re right about feeling it within. Thank you, thank you, thank you…

“I just wanted to write how much I enjoy “Are You Havin’ Any Fun.” I hope this doesn’t sound like an odd type of compliment, but it is of the highest order. If my mom were to sing to me it should be in your voice. And one more compliment, the Hawaiian songs you did – they are done as if you were a local.”
