Sentimental Journey

Easley Presbyterian Church might win the contest for "most fun name" for a senior group. The Yesterukes played today for the Amazing Grays! This group was most welcoming and enjoyed a musical journey back through time as we sang old standards. So many comments after the program were about good memories from high school and college days...back in the 40s!

We love playing and singing for anyone but it's the most fun when it's for a group that knows the music and sings along. The Amazing Grays all sang along with us and laughed as we shared stories about our ukulele adventures. We were also happy to welcome the leader of a Greenville ukulele group who came to hear us. Wouldn't it be fun to get all of us (that would be nearly 40 players) together for a HUGE ukulele event?

As our long-time readers know, the YesterUkes love to eat almost as much as they love to play ukuleles. Today was a real treat as we were served homemade chicken and rice soup. Nothing from a red-and-white labeled can here! After the good soup, there were desserts brought by church members. It may be about time for us to devise a "ukulele exercise plan" to help keep in shape. Any suggestions?

We now have over 100 fans on Facebook! If you haven't become a fan, check it out at here. You'll find more photos there.
