This Week in Middletown (November 1- November 6)

I published on Monday the schedule for Halloween, so I’ll start with Tuesday moving through the rest of the week here.

Wednesday, November 2, 2016 | 7:30pm

 Jake Shimabukuro Ukulele Show
Location: Miami University Middletown – Finkelman Auditorium, 4200 E University Blvd
Middletown OH

Jake has been touring incessantly since the release of his debut album Nashville Sessions which hit #3 on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Albums Chart this week. Breaking from the traditional sounds of the ukulele he’s focused on for past albums – Jake went into a Nashville studio this past January to jam with two top Nashville session players, Jake’s bassist Nolan Verner and drummer Evan Hutchings. Jake is hitting most states, filling up venues, evidence of the devoted fan base that is flourishing even in cities he is visiting for the first time.

Below is the press release with more information on the project and asset links.
