Bassist Jackson Waldhoff and Guitarist Dave Preston will share the stage with Shimabukuro as a trio. Don't miss this opportunity to see them LIVE at The Classic Center Theatre. Attendees will enjoy the fresh, raw, organic sound of the trio, while the musicians perform both original songs as well as familiar covers songs.
