Jake Shimabukuro at the House of Blues Sat June 15th


This guy is amazing with a ukulele. I first saw him on Conan O'Brian about five years ago and was floored at how good this guy is. He makes the ukulele sound like Segovia is playing it. Very excited to see him live tomorrow night. Anyone know this kid? Here he is performing Bohemian Rhapsody at TED conference in 2010.

If you have any interest in guitar you need to watch this. Again, I'm linking live clips, not his studio recordings. This kid is amazingly talented. Here is on a country show performing Let's Dance.

i'd love to see him play live. he is amazing. i have two albums, and his "peace love ukulele" song book. i've been playing uke for about 6 months, and i've learned a couple of his songs.

the Ted talk performance of Bohemian Rhapsody is fantastic. i'm constantly making people watch it.
