"Jake is taking the instrument to a place that I can't see anybody else catching up with." - Eddie Vedder

Known for his fast and complex finger work and lauded as a musical "hero" by Rolling Stone Magazine, ukulele virtuoso Jake Shimabukuro is redefining the instrument. He effortlessly mixes jazz, rock, classical, traditional Hawaiian music and folk to create a sound that's technically masterful, emotionally powerful, and utterly unique in the music world. His concert set list includes original compositions and ukulele classics, along with his dazzling versions of music such as Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody", Schubert?s "Ave Maria" and Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah". Jake has also been the subject of an award-winning documentary, Jake Shimabukuro: Life on Four Strings, currently on Netflix.
