Jake Shimabukuro, a wizard with the ukulele, returns on an Australian tour with his most ambitious and magical album yet, Grand Ukulele, produced by genius producer Alan Parsons (Dark Side of The Moon, Abbey Road). He found fame initially on YouTube with his rendition of George Harrison’s ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’ which led to collaborations with the likes of Jimmy Buffett, Bela Fleck & The Flecktones, Bette Midler, Yo-Yo Ma, Cyndi Lauper, Ziggy Marley, Levon Helm, Marcus Miller, Stanley Clarke, Les Paul, Dave Koz and Chris Botti.

In a relatively short career, Jake Shimabukuro has already redefined a heretofore under-the-radar instrument, been declared a musical “hero” by Rolling Stone, won accolades from the disparate likes of Eddie Vedder, Perez Hilton and Dr. Sanjay Gupta, wowed audiences on TV (Jimmy Kimmel, Conan), earned comparisons to Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis, and even played in front of the Queen of England.

Forget everything you know about the ukulele – let Jake Shimabukuro open your mind to his incredible and magical uke-world on his Australian Tour!
