Jake Shimabukuro at Caffe Lena

Jake Shimabukuro 2018

Ukulele master Jake Shimabukuro is set to play a show at Caffe Lena July 30. Tickets are on sale -- they're $75.*

Shimabukuro, who's from Hawaii, first got widespread attention for a ukulele cover of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" that was posted on YouTube. He's gone on to make a bunch of records, tour around the world, and be featured in all sorts of media, including a documentary about him.

The Caffe Lena date includes show at 7 pm and 9 pm.

Among the other Caffe Lena shows in July

+ July 29: Joan Osborne Sings the Songs of Bob Dylan - $65

+ July 31: Jeff Daniels & The Ben Daniels Band - $40 (yep, the actor Jeff Daniels)

* This might take the top spot in our totally informal recollection of the highest starting ticket price for a general public concert in this area. Metallica and Garth Brooks have both charged $65.
