Christmas is A Comin'
Time to start singing all the Christmas songs we love! The very first day of December found us onstage and leading a giant sing along for senior adults at Mauldin First Baptist Church. We were glad to finally be at this church. Our appearance was rescheduled several times during the year. The original date was last March. That was cancelled due to an ice storm. A couple of other dates and conflicts passed across our calendar, but they really wanted us. A few more attempts and shuffling things around and we finally made it.
What did we play? We searched for some of the lesser heard songs to add to our list of holiday classics to keep things interesting. And we have learned what songs not to do. Last year we thought we'd try a version of the Hallelujah Chorus...probably not best played by a ukulele band. Or at least not our ukulele band. But after "song sampling", we put together 40 minutes of the songs we like best. Four more Christmas programs to go.
Okay, reindeer...bring it on. We're ready!
