I confess that I have not have the fortune (or money) to see & hear Hawaiian ukulele virtuoso Jake Shimabukuro live in concert. I do have a CD of some of his songs, including "Somewhere Over the Rainbow". His music is fast paced and he does amazing finger techniques on his uke.
He's coming from Honolulu (via California on tour) to Tucson this week on Thursday Feb. 20 for an 8 p.m. show at the Rialto Theater, 318 E. Congress St. Doors open at 7 p.m.
Get tickets at the Rialto website (click here), $32 Gold Section, $25 Floor and Lower Balcony reserve seated floor. This show is reserved seated: Specific assigned seats for each ticket sold.
Also performing is Katie Haverly of Cooper and Congress.
