[Updated] On Saturday, ukelele wizard Jake Shimabukuro plays the House of Blues. The Honolulu-born musician has made his reputation for shredding on his island's native instrument in the way others do on guitar and banjos. He emerged first in North America as a YouTube star when a video of him performing The Beatles' "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" went viral, racking up almost 12 million views to date. Unlike many more novel YouTube successes, he had the chops and vision to parlay his online success into a career. He has released countless albums in the U.S. and Japan, where he is also an award-winning talent.

My Spilt Milk is giving away a pair of tickets to see Shimabukuro. Register here to win. The contest closes at noon Thursday.
