Center Stage Jake Shimabukuro

“Ukulele hero” (Rolling Stone)
It’s been a defining year for “ukulele hero” (Rolling Stone) Jake Shimabukuro. He’s performed on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” “Rolling Stone Live,” “A Prairie Home Companion” and CNN’s “The Next List.” On October 2, Jake’s most ambitious record to date, entitled More Ukulele, may catapult his career even further. It’s rare for a young musician to earn comparisons to the likes of Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis. It’s even harder to find an artist who has entirely redefined an instrument by his early thirties. But Jake Shimabukuro (she-ma-boo-koo-row) has already accomplished these feats, and more, in a little over a decade of playing and recording music…on the ukulele. RATING: Definitely NOT Hawaiian music!
Tickets go on sale September 24. Cost is $12 for general public, and $6 for BYU-Idaho students. No children under four. Classroom dress.
