An Evening With Jake Shimbakukuro Trio

Sunday, June 13, 2021

Since he first came to the world’s attention with his deeply beautiful and original take on George Harrison’s “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” in a viral video that dominated YouTube in 2005, the Hawaiian-born Shimabukuro has virtually reinvented the four-string instrument, causing many to call him “the Jimi Hendrix of the ukulele.” Jake takes the ukulele to places no one has gone before, performing awe-inspiring music that ranges from jazz, blues, and rock to bluegrass, classical, and folk. 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.
