Tea For Two...And 65 More

There has been some discussion that we could change the name of our blog from "Sing Along" to "Eat Along" with the Yesterukes.  Sharing a meal and fellowship with the many wonderful people we meet is always a pleasure.  Now that we seem to be averaging four covered dish dinners a month (well, maybe not quite that many), there is no doubt that the best cooks are in the South.

Today's performance was for a community gathering of senior adults.  There were 67 people present, representing 10 churches.  We had such fun singing and reminiscing.  After singing along with us for about 30 minutes, the audience gave us a standing ovation.  We are always well received but we do not always move folks to their feet at the end!  It's certainly fun to know everyone had a good time.  

Visiting with the audience after the program is a favorite part of the day for the YesterUkes.  Today, a lady commented that we must be very well known in the area because it was the largest attendance they've had in a very long time.  A gentleman said he knew every song we sang but one---and that was because he married his wife just before that one was recorded and he didn't need love songs any longer!  

Someone asked how we found our band members.  The answer is they usually find us.  One of our newest members saw us play at in Greenville in December and called to ask if he could join us.  Another member read about us in the newspaper and called about joining.  She had played with a ukulele group in Ohio before moving here.  And we are delighted that these folks are now part of the YesterUkes.
