Jake Shimabukuro, world-famous ukulele extraordinaire, performs “Island Fever Blues” from his latest album, which is being produced by the legendary Alan Parsons. This is a very special performance, and very generous of Jake considering the circumstances. Jake was scheduled to perform at Come 2 Go here in Fort Wayne, IN, on Friday, June 29. Fort Wayne was subjected to fierce storms and hurricane-force winds that day, leaving hundreds of thousands without power. Sweetwater Sound was still up and running, and we were able to re-locate the performance to our in-house Performance Theater. While Jake was here, he was kind enough to give us this special performance for our YouTube fans. Enjoy!
This performance was recorded with the Zoom Q3HD handheld video recorder.
