Jake Shimabukuro with PURE HEART

Doors, Box Office, and Concessions open @ 6:00pm

JAKE SHIMABUKURO returns to the historic Palace stage with his band PURE HEART for a one night only concert event. The Palace is proud to present Jake Shimabukuro live in concert as a fundraising benefit for the theater.

Over the past two decades, Jake Shimabukuro has proved that there isn’t a style of music that he can’t play. While versatility for any musician is impressive, what’s remarkable about Shimabukuro’s transcendent skills is how he explores his seemingly limitless vocabulary – whether it’s jazz, rock, blues, bluegrass, folk or even classical – on perhaps the unlikeliest of instruments: the ‘ukulele. Responding to the urgent calls of his fervent imagination, the Hawai’i-born virtuoso has taken the ‘ukulele to points previously thought impossible, and in the process he’s reinvented the applications for this tiny, heretofore underappreciated four-string instrument, causing many to call him “the Jimi Hendrix of the ‘ukulele.”
