Thursday, November 15th: Jake Shimibukuro @ MIM

A native of Honolulu, ukulele virtuoso Jake Shimabukuro beats down all barriers with jazz-, funk-, pop- and rock-infused rhythms and complex finger styling.

As a member of the group Pure Heart and later Colon, Shimabukuro made big waves on the island state by winning five Na Hoku Hanohano awards (the Hawaiian counterpart to the Grammys). Flying solo since 2002, the eclectic experimentalist has nine albums under his belt and played alongside Bette Midler in 2009 at the Royal Variety Performance for the British Royal Family.

Don't miss this one-night performance by an artfully agile chordophonist at the top of his game.-- Stacy Davies
