KBEY Toy Drive in Marble Falls

We had a great time playing for the KBEY Annual Toy Drive at Lee Hoffpauir Chevrolet in Marble Falls.  We got to see Kay Baker and Ed Chandler again and of course SANTA WAS THERE.  Well, probably just one of his helpers, but you never know....

Afterwards we went to breakfast/lunch at Tea Thyme Cafe across the street.  Great hangin' together, isn't it?

Appearance at Hidden Falls Country Club

We made an appearance at the Highland Lakes Democratic Women's Club Christmas Luncheon at the Hidden Falls Country Club in Marble Falls.  Don provided a simple amplification setup, as the dining room was large but the acoustics were fairly decent. 

They had an interesting program and officer's swearing-in, thanked the officers and members for the past year's service, then a very satisfactory lunch.  At the end we performed 8 Christmas songs.  From the Club we had four attendees, Lisa, Don, Cheryl and Mike.  Several volunteers stood behind us to fill in with voices and the harmonies were quite gratifying.

The crowd really seemed to enjoy the music, and we had a GREAT time.

November Meeting

It was a blast, y'all!  As we have a gig for the Democratic Women's Christmas Party in Marble Falls on December 13th, we took the opportunity to practice the songs we'll be doing then.  We have one more opportunity to practice at our meeting on December 10th.  Our 'Christmas Set List' is provided as a multi-page .pdf at the bottom of the Our Songbook page.  Please use the songs as provided on this .pdf, I replaced a couple of songs with easier-to-read or easier-to-sing versions.  For those of you who think you can attend this and other possible holiday performances, you can download it and use it as a practice tool or bring it with you on your digital device.  Paper copies and music stands will be provided.  Go to the Calendar and click on the December 13th Event for details.

We had a delightful surprise when Cheryl came with her husband Mike, who brought his GuitarrĂ³n.  We have a bass player and he's good!  Seriously, the GuitarrĂ³n introduced a depth that was wonderful.  Thanks again, it was a lovely meeting.

KBEY Appearance

We practiced for a few minutes in the 'Beige Room' of KBEY Radio in Marble Falls while we awaited our Big Break on the airwaves.  Good opportunity to snap a photo under those oh-so-flattering fluorescent lights.

Below the photo is the recording of our interview on KBEY Radio's "Wake Up Call" with Kay Baker & Ed Chandler.

3rd Meeting

Well, somehow we forgot to take pictures of the second meeting, but I'll try to remedy that by writing a little about this one.  What a great night we had!  Luis, Patrick, Cheryl and Bob are our newest members and we found out we have a group of real Harmony Monsters!  We chose fairly easy songs and let the voices shine through.  Y'all were just amazing!  Our little group has doubled in size from the first meeting, hope everyone is proud of themselves. We're starting to learn some easy Holiday songs, just in case we get asked (hint, hint) to perform. Special thanks to Marisa for being our House Photographer.

First Meeting

We had a fine first meeting of the Club, at FUEL Coffeehouse in Llano, TX.  We made our introductions and recounted a little of what brought us to learn and play ukulele.  Then we went on to sing and play a few easy songs and got even more motivated to practice at home.  Our experience ranges from advanced to very beginner and everyone was enthused, kind and helpful.

Daniel Clifton, editor of the Picayune Daily Trib, came by to interview us and take pictures. Article here.
