Sal the Singing Salesman

At a local Home Depot in Laguna Niguel, salesman Sal Vaca sings and dances with his ‘ukulele for customers. The 74-year-old is known as Sal the Singing Salesman as he serenades customers much to their surprise. Taking requests, Sal also shows off a few of his dance moves as he holds his captive audience.

Vaca says playing now brings out the same joy he felt as a child when first picking up the ‘ukulele at the age of 4. I know it’s infectious because I couldn’t help myself but laugh and smile while watching the report on CBS KCAL9. I know that the next time I am in the area, I might be walking home with a new set of screwdrivers just to hear Sal the Singing Salesman!
