If Dent May didn't play ukulele, he'd probably be a lounge singer aboard an island cruise. May's unique vocal style - part crooner, part falsetto, and all showman - recalls love-cursed crooners like Jens Lekmen and Jonathan Richman. One second his songs hint at Brazilian tropicalia; the next at a barbershop quartet singing golden oldies. Born and raised in Mississippi, May's southern charms are hard to resist on his debut album "The Good Feeling Music of Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele." Bring a date tonight, or at least a couple good pick-up lines.
