Eddie Bush


Eddie Bush has long been considered one of Hawaii's greatest ukulele virtuosos. Born in Honolulu, he attended St. Louis High and the University of Dayton.

He performed at nearly every major venue in Waikiki, including the Canoe House at the Ilikai [then the premiere showroom], the Tapa Room at the Hawaiian Village [also the major showroom, where Alfred Apaka sang], Hawaii Calls, the Hawaii Visitors Bureau show in Japan, and others.

He appeared on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, The Mike Douglas Show and on the shows of Merv Griffin, Ed Sullivan, Lawrence Welk and Johnny Cash. He was honored by the Hawaii State legislature.
