Storrs Campus

Back by popular demand! Jake Shimabukuro (she-ma-boo-koo-ro) has been credited with doing for the ukulele what Jimi Hendrix did for guitar and Miles Davis did for jazz. If you missed him before, here’s your chance to see this musical magician. He makes one simple ukulele sound like a full orchestra. Amazing!

"An absolutely jaw-dropping instrumental performance... one of those experiences where you have the sense that you’re witnessing something huge.” - Frets Magazine
