An Evening with
Jake Shimabukuro

Presented in partnership with Sun Radio

In his young career, ukulele wizard Jake Shimabukuro has already redefined a heretofore under-the-radar instrument, been declared a musical “hero” by Rolling Stone, won accolades from the disparate likes of Eddie Vedder, Perez Hilton, and Dr. Sanjay Gupta, wowed audiences on TV (Jimmy Kimmel, Conan), and earned comparisons to Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis. His star burns even brighter with a fall concert tour promoting his new album with legendary producer/engineer Alan Parsons, best known for his work on Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, The Beatles’ Abbey Road, and his own highly successful solo projects.

“Jake is taking the instrument to a place that I can’t see anybody else catching up with.” — Eddie Vedder
