Jake Shimabukuro’s ‘ukulele skills are renowned far beyond Hawaii. He started as part of Pure Heart, with Lopaka Colon and Jon Yamasato. They won four Na Hoku Hanohano awards with their first album. Later, after Shimabukuro went on to a solo career, Rolling Stone declared him a musical hero. He’s also earned comparisons to Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis and has performed for the Queen of England. In other words, he most definitely rocks. $12-$45. 7:30pm. Maui Arts and Cultural Center, Castle Theater (One Cameron Way, Kahului); 808-242-7469,
