Why See Jake Shimabukuro?
There are ukulele players...and then there's Jake Shimabukuro. Declared a "hero" by Rolling Stone, the Hawaiian born musician has taken the humble instrument to new levels, blending bluegrass, flamenco and classical techniques in a lightening quick flurry of finger picking. He first came to the world's attention back in 2006, when his rendition of While My Guitar Gently Weeps, recorded in Central Park, went viral on Youtube. Since then he's continued to hone is talent, through both original compositions and covers.
His latest album was Travels, which alongside traditional Hawaiian standards contained some covers of classic pop songs, including Jackson 5's I'll be There. Catch Jake when he hits House of Blues in New Orleans, LA, Closed June 21, 2017
