“When it comes to a big, friendly personality and a wizardly command of his instrument, Hawaiian-born ukulele master Jake Shimabukuro is a towering figure.” – Josef Woodard, Santa Barbara News-Press

“[Shimabukuro] comes by his fame with buoyant musicianship and brisk proficiency.” The New York Times

Ukulele wizard Jake Shimabukuro’s virtuosic performances combine his singular mix of classical grandiosity, jazz ingenuity and rock-star tenacity. While he draws comparisons to musical vanguards like Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis, his sound and spirit is uniquely, undeniably, his own. His wildly eclectic catalog speaks to his prolific mastery, and a single set might include Queen, George Harrison, Schubert and Leonard Cohen. In Shimabukuro’s own words, “expect the unexpected.”
