Jake Shimabukuro welcomes 2021 at Blue Note Hawaii

Blue Note Hawaii will ring in the New Year with ukulele master Jake Shimabukuro from December 31 through January 2, 2020, with shows at 6 and 8:30pm each night. 

With only four strings, Jake Shimabukuro is a humble master whose mission is to connect and inspire people. Whether one on one or in front of an audience of thousands, Jake shares a deep emotional connection with the listener that is open, magical and transcendent.

Often referred to as the Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix, Bruce Lee and Michael Jordan of his craft, Jake delivers performances around the world with an out-of-the-box blend of stunning virtuosity, deep musicality and a natural entertainer’s flair.

Jake takes the ukulele to places no one has gone before, performing awe inspiring music that ranges from jazz, blues, and rock to bluegrass, classical, and folk.

Blue Note Hawaii is also celebrating its 5th anniversary, bringing back the artist who appeared on its stage five years ago to the day.

To keep audiences safe and socially distant, only 25 tables per show will be sold. Tickets are on sale now at www.bluenotehawaii.com.

A live stream option is available for the New Year’s Day show at 6:00 p.m., with tickets available via Jake’s show page; the performance will also be available on demand for 48 hours after the show.

Parking is validated at the OHANA East Hotel for $6 for four hours and at the Outrigger Waikiki for $15 for four hours valet.
