Mark Baker has been performing for over 50 years. Working primarily as a vocalist, he uses the guitar as his accompaniment, and has toured the western states, Canada and Mexico. In 2009 he discovered the ukulele and his life changed.  As a JUHI certified instructor, he founded the Sun City Ukulele Club with 6 members in 2012. In 2016, with membership exceeding 125, he left his position as director to teach ukulele and perform adding “color and pizzaz”at Ukulele clubs and festivals across the country. As a singer songwriter, his latest release AND I RIDE is his favorite accomplishment.


"I was introduced to Ohana Ukuleles at a festival in Las Cruces, NM. As an instructor I carry a few loaner ukuleles to help out if needed.  When 43 people signed up for my workshop, the Ohana Rep offered to supply Ohanas to anyone who came empty handed or wanted to try something new. Being very impressed with the sound, craftsmanship and value, it became clear I wanted to know more about Ohana Ukuleles."
