Jake Shimabukuro Returns to the MACC, March 16
Jake Shimabukuro, renowned for his talent on the ʻukulele, returns for a performance at the MACC on Saturday, March 16, 2019 at 5:30 p.m.
In 2005, Shimabukuro became an international phenomenon when a video of him performing the George Harrison song, “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” went viral on YouTube. By adapting a guitar hero’s anthem for the ‘ukulele, Jake made a significant statement: the ‘ukulele, with its humble four strings and modest two-octave range, is an instrument limited only by the imagination and creativity of the person playing it.
Jake is now a worldwide phenomenon: he’s been declared a musical “hero” by Rolling Stone, has collaborated with and won accolades from diverse stars in the music world, and wowed audiences on world tours and TV.
Jake’s latest album, The Greatest Day, featuring some of his most imaginative and adventuresome playing yet, was released this past August.
Ticket options include a $15, $25, $45, $65, and $85 option and can be purchased from the MACC box office during operating hours, by calling (808)-242-SHOW or online.
