a great time shooting for the quartet Barbershop Style. I got the day
off from work and we met at a Big Boy restaurant at 8am for breakfast.
I got a video clip of the guys singing to our waitress that I later put
on our GreatLakesChorus.org website and on Barbershop Style's page
using YouTube.com. Besides doing
homes and businesses they also performed at 2 different church
luncheons, one was a large audience where they were well received
performing for over 30 minutes. My favorite stop was at an assisted
living home's filled dining hall. A gift from her daughters the
elderly mother broke down in tears before the guys even started singing
and was then surrounded by her daughters and granddaughters weeping and
smiling as Barbershop Style serenaded them all. I did get to 'sit in'
for their lead and sing one Valentine for my Grandpa. It was dinner
time at his assisted living home and we hid around the corner waiting
for the evening benediction to conclude. Then we strode in to the
dining hall and sang to a 'full house'. He was glad to be the talk of
the evening among all the ladies.
