Concerts at the Poway Center for the Performing Arts
The “Jimi Hendrix of the ukulele”
Hawaiian-born Jake Shimabukuro has been called the “Jimi Hendrix of the ukulele.”
Shimabukuro’s virtuosic approach to the ukulele has dazzled music lovers at SXSW, the Playboy Jazz Festival, Fuji Rock Festival, Lincoln Center, Sydney Opera House and the Hollywood Bowl. He has performed for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and albums such as Gently Weeps, Peace Love Ukulele and Grand Ukulele have topped the Billboard World Music Charts. Shimabukuro’s eclectic repertoire ranges from jazz, blues, funk and rock, to classical, bluegrass, folk and flamenco. Shimabukuro came to fame via YouTube videos featuring beloved renditions of Beatles hits and Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.” This concert will feature some of his most imaginative and adventuresome playing yet from his recent record, The Greatest Day.
