Thu 21 Mar This week we will warm up with a big selection of songs from any of our song books before hearing announcements regarding songbooks or upcoming performances. We can then work on a couple of new songs from our Candidates book before hearing from anyone who has prepared an item for open mic. We have now finished sorting out songs from Performance Book 2016 that are suitable for us performing at care institutions. We can all thank Bette for learning Microsoft Word well enough to type up more than 26 of these songs with simple musical introductions included so that any Busker may lead the group through the start of each song. Each arrangement is being tested by Busker volunteers so that very soon we will have a hardcopy of 40 songs maximum. There is room for maybe another 10 songs sourced from our other songbooks or from Busker suggestions, so be ready to offer your suggestions for inclusion. "My Blue Heaven" , "Road to Gundagai" and "Side By Side" spring to mind.
Thu 14 Mar Thanks to everyone that contributed to an enjoyable concert at Shellharbour, especially to the sound guys. We drew many compliments regarding our song selections and our rich sound including our harmony chorus which was clearly heard by the audience thanks to our condenser mics. Also a big thankyou to all those who performed with Bette for the residents of Blue Haven on Tuesday. This week we can do singalongs, open mic and try out songs from the latest edition of the Candidates book - check our Songs page.
