Ukulele virtuoso Jake Shimabukuro will perform at Kleinhans Music Hall at 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17. Tickets will go on sale Thursday, May 11.
Shimabukuro has singlehandedly redefined the ukulele, exploring the instrument's possibilities like none other and inspiring a generation to learn the instrument. His YouTube videos of songs by the Beatles and Jimi Hendrix went viral and launched him into the international spotlight. He performs a range of rock music, tunes from his native Hawaii, and original works.
Shimabukuro is a relentless live performer, touring constantly and garnering global critical acclaim. He has released two albums in the past year: "Travels" in late 2015, and "Live in Japan" in February. He has ventured into classical music, making a successful debut with the Buffalo Philharmonic last fall and performing with other orchestras across the country. He returns to the Kleinhans stage in November for this solo show.
Tickets are $35 and $45, with VIP seating tickets available for $65. To purchase tickets, visit kleinhansbuffalo.org or call 716-885-5000.
