What the subject says!
(I have yet to go to one ).
I was lucky enough to see Jake Shimabukuro play in Cleveland this summer. What a show
I dragged along some others who had never heard of him. Afterwards they told me they did not know what to expect from a solo ukulele performer, but it sure wasn't that!
My son went with us. He loved the show. Afterwards he got to meet Jake. (Me too!) About a week later he decided to buy a guitar and start taking lessons. I think Jake helped inspire him.

I saw the ukulele orchestra of great britain. To be honest I was a bit disappointed. Most of the music they played was so old I couldnt recognise it; some of it was from the 1920s. Of the music I did recognise, a lot wasnt to my taste; Adele etc. The audience was a sea of silver hair,some of which had never seen head banging before.
The play along song in the middle was some shit from the 1940s. I think there was only two people there (out of around 10k) that knew it and could play along with it.
They did play a couple of songs that I was hoping to hear, but they were no different than what I had seen on youtube. I had to bargain with my wife for a day pass to go.
I left early.
