Jake Shimabukuro

Ukulele Virtuoso

If you haven’t heard of Jake Shimabukuro, well then, you don’t know what you’re missing.

Born in Honolulu, Hawaii, Jake came to prominence in 2006 with his heart pounding rendition of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” performed in Central Park.

We discovered Jake at the Phoenix Musical Instrument Museum while wandering through the stringed instrument exhibit where his performance was being shown on a large video screen.  And as fate would have it, we soon got to see him perform live on Maui at The Maui Cultural Center. Rock-n-Roll ukulele. Amazing!

Jake is to the ukulele what Eric Clapton is to the guitar!

If you get a chance to see him, don’t pass up the opportunity. Here is his official website and touring schedule:  jakeshimabukuro.com

Spread the aloha!
