In his humble rise to becoming who Rolling Stone calls "one of the hottest axmen of the past few years," Shimabukuro's "virtuosic chops and tasteful sensibilities" (Billboard) took him from YouTube fame to being an "international sensation" (The Today Show) and was heralded as the "Jimi Hendrix of the ukulele" (Guitar Player). 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 the corny showbiz routines with which many associate it."Jake Shimabukuro is to the ukulele what Jimi Hendrix is to the guitar, John Coltrane is to the saxophone and Serena Williams is to the tennis racket." — Greensboro News & RecordSeason Tickets on sale now.
