Smiles


A new year, a new beginning. And time to look back a little. Why do we do what we do? The Yesterukes play because it's fun. Plain and simple. We don't do it for the money. We charge no fee for performances. (But sometimes groups make a donation that helps with expenses.) We certainly don't do it for fame. (But we are slated to be in a magazine in the spring.) We just play because it's fun for us to get together.

But along the way, it's really nice to hear good things people say about us. Icing on the cake, as they say. And here is one of those good things...

This week a gentleman told us that because of business and civic commitments, he had attended 14-15 Christmas functions in December--one was a party where we performed. That's a lot of parties. All these parties provided some sort of entertainment. He said that of all the parties/events he attended, the Yesterukes entertainment stood head and shoulders above the rest. Pretty high praise, we think.

We are all smiling now. Okay...maybe we do this because we like hearing nice things, too.


Smiles, recorded by Benny Goodman, 1936
