You're Nobody Till Somebody Loves You

If the song is true, we are definitely "somebody" because the folks at First Baptist Spartanburg really loved us. First Baptist Church in Spartanburg, SC is a huge congregation--about 7,000 members. If all of them are as friendly as the 150 or so we met, it's a fantastic place to be.

It might be the most enthusiastic audience ever. If we gave prizes for singing along with us, this group would win, hands down. It's so much fun for us to play when everyone listening gets into the music.

We love meeting new people and everyone here was so nice. We even met some old friends that had moved to this area. That was unexpected but it was fun to catch up after many years.

The Yesterukes never turn down a dinner invitation. Guess we truly "sing for our supper." 

When the evening was over, this crowd jumped to their feet (well, as fast as a group called Young At Heart can jump.) Another standing ovation! They all left humming and singing and there was a smile on every face.

We were all smiling, too. It made us glad that we do what we do. All of our hard work was so appreciated. This was a perfect place to end our season. Yes, it was the last performance before summer break. The Yesterukes have worked hard this year and will be taking a much deserved break. We'll be back on the road in the fall. 

There will be some blog posts along the way, but if we skip several weeks, don't give up on us. We're just resting.
