Jim Beloff is the author of The Ukulele - A Visual History (Backbeat Books) and author, arranger, and publisher of the popular Jumpin' Jim's series of ukulele songbooks. This series is sold worldwide and includes The Daily Ukulele: 365 Songs For Better Living and The Daily Ukulele: Leap Year Edition, two of the largest ukulele songbooks ever published.

They regularly perform together at uke-centric events playing their family's Fluke, Flea and Firefly ukuleles. They have also gone on uke tours of Japan and Australia and truly believe in their company's motto, "Uke Can Change the World."
