The C.C. Strummers Holiday Concert
|Culver City Senior Center|
I took the day off from work yesterday to attend the C.C. Strummers Holiday Concert at the Culver City Senior Center. Cali Rose, the leader of our Ukulele Workshop at Boulevard Music is also the leader of the C.C. Strummers. A few of the Strummers are in our workshop too. If I didn't have this pesky job, I'd join the group!
I'd only driven by the Culver City Senior Center, never ventured inside. Nice building! Most impressive too. There is a lovely courtyard and many different meeting rooms. The show was in the large auditorium, festively decorated for the event.

I saw a few friends tuning up before the show. The house was packed! SRO!

The show was excellent! There were a variety of tunes with audience participation, which is always fun. There were some surprises along with the Christmas Classics, including the novelty songs, "Hanukkah in Santa Monica" and "I Wanna Hippopotamus For Christmas." The hula dancing class at the Center entertained for a couple of numbers. There were line dancers and even Island Santa was there!
