There was plenty of colour added to an excellent performance by 38 of our players at Ti Tree Lodge. Nearly everyone followed the dress code and sported Hawaiian or tropical garb along with leis and appropriate hats!
Unfortunately Karen wasn’t able to attend but Alan managed bravely in her absence. He was especially helpful explaining the Hawaiian origins of songs like ‘Bring Me Sunshine’, ‘Hello Mary Lou’ and ‘Return to Sender’.
The audience at Ti Tree Lodge is always enthusiastic. There are always dancers – residents and staff and so many sing along, some just quietly in their own way tapping their feet and hands. Our last song (unrehearsed) was ‘We’ll Meet Again’, and so we shall at Ti Tree’s St. Patrick’s celebration.
Thankyou Alan for yesterday! There was an amputee who looked so sad when we arrived when the music started he began tapping his hand. When the lady danced across the floor with the Uke he broke out in the happiest smile. So many of the audience sang along quietly in their own way tapping their feet & hands.
A lady grabbed my arm at the end and said “that was absolutely fantastic I love music ”
