In his young career, ukulele wizard Jake Shimabukuro has redefined the instrument, been declared a musical “hero” by Rolling Stone Magazine, won accolades from the wide-ranging likes of Eddie Vedder, Perez Hilton and Dr. Sanjay Gupta, wowed audiences on TV (“Jimmy Kimmel Live” and “Conan”), earned comparisons to Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis, and even played in front of the Queen of England.

The Hawaiian superstar has become famous for his masterful uke and covers of such hits as the Beatles’ “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” and Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody, just to name a few.

Taking time out from recording his next album – anticipated to be released this summer – Jake returns to the Central Coast with instrument and incredible talent in hand.

“Jake is taking the instrument to a place that I can’t see anybody else catching up with.” –Eddie Vedder
