Fiesta La Ballona

We performed under the big tent in the center of Verteran's Park, Culver City
Last  Sunday I performed with the CC Strummers at Culver City's Fiesta La Ballona. Cali Rose, our fearless leader, worked up a half-hour set for us. This year's theme of ukulele music was called "Flashback Sunday."  We played songs from various decades and asked the audience to guess the years. Our oldest song went way back to the 1880s. The most recent, 1972. We all had a great time and the audience had fun too!

Here we are, singin' out little hearts out!

It's difficult to hear our beautiful harmonies during the various recordings. Since Cali is the only voice and ukulele on microphone, you only hear her, especially when recorded on an iPhone. Next year, I'm going to lobby the Culver City Recreation Department for more microphones set up within our group.

We all had a great time. The audience sang along and was most receptive. All of our weeks of practicing was worth the reward! Thank you, Cali for making us sound so great!

Thanks, Gina, for being such a faithful follower! I'll bet there's a local ukulele group in Dallas! You should find them and maybe learn to play. It's so much fun playing in a group!

Of course, Cali! I love being in the CC Strummers! You are the best and most patient teacher EVER!
