Jake Shimabukuro

When: Mon., April 28, 7:30 p.m. 2014

The ukulele looks and sounds like a cheeky infant guitar, and you don’t have to know much about music to pluck out a tune on the four-stringed instrument. But 37-year-old Jake Shimabukuro takes the ukulele to an entirely new dimension, proving it can foster just as much virtuosity as the guitar. His album Peace Love Ukulele excited people so much it reached No. 1 on Billboard's Top World Music Albums charts in 2011 and 2012. Coming all the way from Hawaii to play the Bing Crosby Theater this coming Monday, Shimabukuro blends his genre-bending music and wicked-fast fingerwork into a night of utter entertainment.
