An Evening with Jake Shimabukuro
Wednesday, July 22, 2020 • 7:30 pm • TD Stage
About The Show
Over the course of the past 15 years, Hawaiian-born Jake Shimabukuro has challenged and changed all notions of what is possible with a ukulele. He has virtually reinvented the four-string instrument, causing many to call him “the Jimi Hendrix of the ukulele.” Shimabukuro first came to the world’s attention with his deeply beautiful and original take on George Harrison’s “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” in a viral video that dominated YouTube in 2005. Albums such as Gently Weeps, Peace Love Ukulele, and Grand Ukulele topped the Billboard World Music Charts, and as a live performer, he became one of the hottest tickets around, headlining the Hollywood Bowl, Lincoln Center, and the Sydney Opera House.
With only four strings, Shimabukuro takes the ukulele to places no one has gone before and delivers performances around the world with an out-of-the-box blend of stunning virtuosity, deep musicality, and a natural entertainer's flair.
