Jake Shimabukuro

Jake Shimabukuro can still vividly remember the first time he held a ukulele, at age four. It was an encounter that would shape his destiny and give the world one of the most exceptional and innovative uke players in the history of the instrument—an artist who has drawn comparisons to musical titans such as Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis. Jakes bi-annual visits to Santa Cruz sell out the Rio theatre every time, so early ticket purchase is encouraged!
