My wife and I went to a "cook-out" last night at one of her co-worker's homes. I took two KoAloha ukuleles with me. A guitarist was there. Before we were done playing ukes for an hour or so, he was totally hooked and planning a purchase.

Several other people there loved the ukes and were really fascinated about the popularity of the instrument. In fact, several of them knew several performers by name.

It was a fun evening.

I wish I had a KoAloha to play all evening.

I like, equally, the sound of a "cook-out"...

Sounds like a good time..I actually did the same thing the other day, but no such luck on getting people hooked on ukulele..Maybe I should of brought the Pineapple Sunday..They seem to be a nice conversation piece even if someone doesn't know a thing about ukes.
