Jake Shimabukuro is a MACC and Maui favorite world-renowned ‘ukulele virtuoso who consistently surpasses every expectation of his audiences. Known for his lightning-fast fingers as well as the amazing breadth and depth of his mastery, Shimabukuro’s repertoire includes all music, all genres from mellow jazz and soulful blues to traditional Hawaiian tunes as well as classical music, bluegrass, flamenco, and rock. Shimabukuro's latest album is Jake & Friends and is an inspiration for his current tour. 
Over the past two decades, Shimabukuro has proved that there isn’t a style of music that he can’t play. While versatility for any musician is impressive, what’s remarkable about Shimabukuro’s transcendent skills is how he explores his seemingly limitless vocabulary – whether it’s jazz, rock, blues, bluegrass, folk or even classical – on perhaps the unlikeliest of instruments: the ‘ukulele. Responding to the urgent calls of his fervent imagination, Shimabukuro has taken the ‘ukulele to points previously thought impossible, and in the process he’s reinvented the applications for this tiny, heretofore underappreciated four-string instrument, causing many to call him “the Jimi Hendrix of the ‘ukulele.”
Jake & Friends is his most creatively ambitious project to-date, featuring collaborations with a who’s who of music royalty, from Willie Nelson and Bette Midler to Jimmy Buffett and Kenny Loggins. In terms of size and scope and considering the sheer number of legendary stars who graciously loaned their inimitable talents to the project, ‘Jake & Friends’ can be compared to other benchmark duets albums by the likes of Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett.

Deana Carter is an American country music singer-songwriter who broke through in 1996 with the release of her debut album Did I Shave My Legs for This? A Nashville native, Carter, didn’t take an easy route to stardom. Instead, she chose to defy conventional expectations of the typical Nashville artist blueprint and to make her own mark, taking the industry (and fans) by storm with her wildly successful multi-platinum international debut Did I Shave My Legs For This?
Anchored by the dreamy, debut super-hit, Strawberry Wine, Carter showcased her own blend of country and retro-rock, sprinkled with the folksy singer/songwriter qualities that have garnered Carter well-deserved, lasting respect, and wide acclaim. Carter’s debut album showcased her songwriting and production skills and was met with strong reviews. The record would ultimately climb to the top of both the country and pop charts, quickly achieving multi-platinum status, with three consecutive #1 singles and five high-charting singles, a distinctive accomplishment for a debut artist. To date, Carter’s music has over 500 million streams and she has sold nearly six million albums. Carter was thrilled to recently celebrate the 25th Anniversary Edition re-release of the debut album.
