I've been waiting awhile for the Ukulele Underground to make it to the bay.  I headed over to San Francisco last Tuesday for a workshop/concert by the world famous Aldrine Guerrero and Aaron Nakamura.  Unfortunately I had students until late that day and of course hit rush hour traffic on the bridge so I unfortunately missed the workshop section of the event.  The event was organized by  Edgar Dang of Aloha Warehouse.  If you haven't got a chance to check out his shop yet, do yourself a favor and stop by to talk ukes and drool over his incredible inventory.  Although I missed the workshop, the concert was well worth the trip over.  Aldrine and Aaron put on such a memorable performance and I haven't seen a crowd have a better time at any other ukulele event I've ever been to.  Aldrine was really funny and genuine and I loved how much he interacted with everyone in the audience. They played a good mix of stellar covers and some of my favorite originals all while keeping a very funny and informal vibe to their set. Check out all of us chanting for Aaron "The Voice" Nakamura to sing us another song.
