Enthusiastic fans filed into Albany’s Hart Theatre at The Egg on Sunday, March 30th, to view the ukulele virtuoso, Jake Shimabukuro. Since the age of four, the 38-year-old phenom proved to be very entertaining and a one-of-a-kind musician.
Shimabukuro showcased his lightning-fast and complex finger work at his opening show. Eventually, Shimabukuro was joined by electric bass guitarist Rich Glass for a few original tunes. Crowd favorites included “Gentle Mandolin,” and a stirring melody entitled “Blue Roses Falling.” During the second half of the show, Shimabukuro picked up the tempo a bit with an impressive “electric guitar” jam and the always famous cover of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Jake Shimabukuro offers his audience an experience that is both unique and entertaining.
