Jake Shimabukuro plays in Redwood City

Ukulele superstar Jake Shimabukuro has played for everyone from Jimmy Kimmel to the Queen of England. On Sunday, Feb. 19, he’ll be playing for an audience of locals at the Fox Theatre, 2221 Broadway St., Redwood City.

Shimabukuro, who’s said his virtuoso uke playing has been influenced not only by fellow Hawaiian ukulele greats like Eddie Kamae but also athletes Bruce Lee and Michael Jordan, rose to fame a decade ago when a YouTube video of his performance of George Harrison’s “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” went viral. Since then, he’s become a worldwide phenomenon.

His Redwood City show starts at 4 p.m. Tickets are $35-$75. Go to Fox Theatre.
