Shimabukuro returns to Thrasher Opera House Friday, Oct. 1.
Musician Jake Shimabukuro will make a return visit to the historic Thrasher Opera House in Green Lake Friday, Oct. 1 for a 7:30 p.m. concert.
Shimabukuro has taken the ukulele to places no one has gone before, performing music that ranges from jazz, blues, and rock to bluegrass, classical and folk.
Every major artist has that one defining album or performance, but for Shimabukuro, his career has been filled with achievements.
Since he first came to the world’s attention with his original take on George Harrison’s “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” in a viral video that dominated YouTube in 2005, the Hawaiian-born Shimabukuro has virtually reinvented the four-string instrument, causing many to call him “the Jimi Hendrix of the ukulele.”
Tickets are $40. Reservation for Costaki may be made by visiting www.thrasheroperahouse.com or by calling 920-294-4279.
