Though some still have trouble pronouncing his last name and the instrument he plays, Jake Shimabukuro is recognized as one of the world’s most exciting and innovative ukulele players and composers.
Renowned for lightning-fast fingers and revolutionary playing techniques, Jake views the ukulele as an “untapped source of music with unlimited potential.” His virtuosity defies label or category. Playing jazz, blues, funk, classical, bluegrass, folk, flamenco, and rock, Jake’s mission is to show everyone that the ukulele is capable of so much more than the traditional Hawaiian music – or corny showbiz routines — many associate it with. Jake has gone on to play renowned and popular venues and festivals across the U.S., Japan, Canada, Australia, and elsewhere. Occasional tours with Jimmy Buffett & The Coral Reefer Band have broadened Jake’s experience, regularly exposing his virtuosity and charming stage presence to crowds of up to 50,000.
The astonishingly talented, Jake Shimabukuro takes the Kalamazoo State Theatre Stage November 8th. You won’t want to miss this show stopping event.
