The Old Gray Mare

"The old gray mare, she ain't what she used to be", the folk song says. Well, that is certainly true for the Yesterukes but in a good way. It has been almost three years since we started the band. If you are a regular reader, you've followed our progress as a group. But there have been many individual changes, too.

The person who said, "I'll come to practice only if you promise I won't EVER have to play in public" has been leading the group for several performances while the regular leader is absent for a while.

A gentleman who came to us as a fairly new player is now teaching a class, helping others learn to play ukulele.

Our rhythm player had never played any musical instrument before and now keeps a steady beat for the band on a multitude of rhythm instruments.

Our vocal soloist is taking drum lessons. Everyone in our group has a story.

So, yes..."we ain't what we used to be." We're better.
