Shimabukuro returns to Hawaii Theatre
HONOLULU PULSE STAFF / email@example.com
It’s certainly been a grand year for Jake Shimabukuro.
First, he and his wife had their first child in August, a boy. The 36-year-old master of the ukulele also added to his accomplishments a documentary, “Life on Four Strings,” that played to great response at this year’s Hawaii International Film Festival.
And now, his latest and his most ambitious album, “Grand Ukulele,” was released last month. Shimabukuro worked with legendary studio producer Alan Parsons, who helped create iconic rock albums “Abbey Road” and “Dark Side of the Moon.”
Shimabukuro is currently on tour to promote the new album, and a week or so after visiting Nevada for shows in Reno and Las Vegas he will be home for the inaugural “Jake Shimabukuro & Friends Concert” at Hawaii Theatre on Saturday, Nov. 24 — which will hopefully become an annual affair.
He and his guests will feature the new album, which once again shows his command of any genre of music he sets his mind to, whether it be classical, blues, flamenco, mandolin, rock and surf rock.
The concert starts at 8 p.m., with tickets ranging from $20-$60 ($5 discount each ticket for theater members), available at the theater box office or online at hawaiitheatre.com.
