Jay also serves as son Andrew’s manager helping steer him to being one of Hawai‘i’s best ‘ukulele performers, and one declared by ‘Ukulele Magazine as ‘one of the next Jakes’, referring to Jake Shimabukuro, one of Andrew’s main inspirations.
Andrew Molina’s (left) latest CD release is Evolv3 released last year. ‘Ukulele Magazine said of Andrew in its Evolv3 review, "...this guy has serious ‘ukulele chops, and he’s capable of breathing life into any style with sheer virtuosity". For his first CD, The Beginning, Andrew was nominated for a Nā Hōkū award. His music is categorized as a mix of Hawaiian, pop, rock, Latin and jazz.
