Forget everything you know about the ukulele -- this is no tiptoe through the tulips!

Jake Shimabukuro takes the ukulele to places you’ve never seen or heard before. Compared to Yo Yo Ma, Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis, Shimabukuro has redefined the ukulele for the 21st Century, performing fully arranged versions of concert classics like the Beatles’ “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” – all on only four short strings!

His live shows have critics and fans tripping over themselves with praise, and his YouTube clips have been viewed more than 10 million times. The guru of “Peace, Love and Ukulele,” Shimabukuro offers a one-of-a-kind concert experience! Catch Jake now and say “I saw him when…” for years to come.
