An intimate evening celebrating friendship through stories and songs.

Show Date

Friday, February 9, 2024

Show Details: Jake and Mac

Ukulele master, Jake Shimabukuro and renowned songwriter, singer, and instrumentalist, Mac McAnally are longtime kindred spirits and collaborators. In addition to their own formattable careers, Jake and Mac first performed together with the legendary Jimmy Buffett in the Coral Reefer Band. This special performance will include material and collaboration from both artists in addition to select songs you know by heart to honor their friend and mentor.

About Jake Shimabukuro

Walking up the creaky wooden steps, there are what seems like hundreds of slippers all around the front door. Soft music floats through the air, inviting me to the back yard. Aunties and Uncles fill every lawn chair and the keiki run around in the freshly cut grass. There’s a warm breeze blowing and at least a dozen friends strum along, kanikapila style, to a tune we all know and everyone sings the words to. These are the songs of my life. I am home. And I am grateful.

About Mac McAnally

For his new album, Once in a Lifetime, Mac McAnally is indeed doing something he’s never done before. To reflect the intimacy of his concerts, he arranged most of the material around guitar and percussion – yet he acknowledges that several of its tracks outgrew that simple set-up. And while many of the songs are new, he chose to include a few originals dating back to the early 2000s that seemed like a good fit.

McAnally notes that he typically sees three kinds of people at his shows: Those who have followed his career since his 1977 debut album; those who recognize him as the guitarist in Jimmy Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band; and those who remember his notable credits in country music. The latter category is particularly impressive, with songs cut by Alabama (“Old Flame”), Kenny Chesney (“Back Where I Come From”), Sawyer Brown (“All These Years”), Shenandoah (“Two Dozen Roses”) and many others.
