Hey Everyone, Meet Jake!

I had the distinct pleasure to have a quick piece of Jake Shimabukuro’stime. For those of you that are unaware of Jake, listen up. I will be playing a good quantity of his music on this weeks show. Known for lightning-fast fingers and revolutionary playing techniques, Jake Shimabukuro is a master of the ‘ukulele. The 29-year-old virtuoso shatters musical boundaries, playing jazz, blues, funk, classical, bluegrass, folk, flamenco, and rock. While Jake has great respect and love for traditional Hawaiian ukulele music, his mission is to show everyone that the ukulele is capable of so much more.

Jake will be playing in Mansfield Mass. at the Tweeter Center with Jimmy Buffett on August 10th. Make sure you check out this unbelieveable performance.

Listen to our conversation here.
