Presented by Mesa Arts Center as part of the Performing Live Series


Compared to the likes of Miles Davis and Jimi Hendrix, ukulele master Jake Shimabukuro is bringing his lightning-fast fingers and revolutionary playing techniques back to Mesa Arts Center for an enthralling evening of jazz, pop and funk. One of the world’s most exciting and innovative ukulele players and composers, Jake redefines ukulele music--performing everything from traditional Hawaiian tunes to covers of popular hits like George Harrison’s “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” and Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
