Indoor Luau

Grandview Terrace Apartments, Mar Vista, Los Angeles
On Wednesday I joined a small, off-shoot group of the CC Strummers (my ukulele group) for a gig at Grandview Terrace in Mar Vista. Our fearless leader, Cali Rose has been performing at Grandview for years. She decided to take us along this year. 
This is a HUD development, offering rental assistance to seniors. Most of the residents at the luau spoke Russian. Music is the universal language, so we all had a great time!
The recreation room was decorated and set up for a Hawaiian lunch.  

While we performed, the residents ate lunch. Many of them got up and danced during our performance. I must say, we were rockin'!
Vickie (left) is our Cruise Director. She really got the crowd dancing!
Cali Rose is an amazing ukulele player, singer and performer. At one point in the show, Cali was playing, dancing, singing and flirting!
The talented Cali Rose
We performed a whole slew of Hawaiian songs with some added Hawaiian-ish numbers in the mix. After the performance our group was served a lovely catered lunch of salad, grilled pineapple chicken, fried rice, veggies and yummy  bread pudding for dessert. Thanks for your hospitality, Grandview Terrace!
