WJCT and the Florida Theatre present Jake Shimabukuro, LIVE at the WJCT Soundstage.
Jake Shimabukuro was already an award winning ukulele player when a 2006 YouTube video of him playing “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” became one of the first-ever viral videos.
Widespread acclaim brought high-visibility collaborations with a wide range of artists including Yo-Yo Ma, Jimmy Buffett, Bette Midler, Cyndi Lauper, Jack Johnson, Ziggy Marley, Dave Koz, Michael McDonald, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, Tommy Emmanuel, and Marty Friedman.
Jake Shimabukuro has topped Billboard’s World Music Chart on numerous occasions, and has sold out prestigious venues and festivals such as the Hollywood Bowl, Lincoln Center, Sydney Opera House, Wolf Trap, Bonnaroo, SXSW, and the Playboy Jazz Festival.
Jake’s most recent recording is The Greatest Day (2018), a mixture of new original instrumental compositions plus covers of songs by The Beatles, Ed Sheeran, Jimi Hendrix, and Leonard Cohen.
This is a partnership of Florida Theatre on the Road and WJCT. This event will be held at the WJCT Soundstage.
