Jake Shimabukuro at the Hawaii Book & Music Festival

May 18, 2009

Color me underwhelmed by the Hawaii Book & Music Festival. After all the hype around it in the local press, the event seemed sadly understaffed and underattended (from 4-6:30 on Saturday, when we were there). Vacant booths and an aura of half-heartedness characterized the experience.

But, well, I guess we were more there for Jake than the festival itself. As always, Jake put on an energetic, surprising and gracious performance. The highlight this time was an amazing rendition of Sakura (for all the Japanese fans in the crowd). As a bonus, we caught a glimpse of Jake up close and personal on his way to the portapotties prior to the show.
