Playing in the Atrium at Cedarwood Village

Once again, the flamboyantly dressed Dover Uke Heads descended upon an unsuspecting group of citizens, this time entertaining the residents of Cedarwood Village Retirement Apartments and Nursing Home, in Simcoe.

We played for our audience in an area called the Atrium which was a beautiful carpeted space with vaulted ceilings and balconies. The acoustics were out of this world – made us sound great! ha ha!

A great view from the balcony of the Atrium!

Along with some tunes from the first half of the 20th Century, ha ha ha, we also played The Locomotion and Let’s Twist Again, two crowd-pleasers that really seem to go over well, getting people clapping and moving around. One scene that didn’t get photographed has to be described here. Uke Head Susan was called upon to play her solo song, I Want to go Back to My Little Grass Shack, and was accompanied by the newly-formed “DUHD”s, or “Dover Ukehead Hula Dancer”s. Sadly, we couldn’t scramble the cameras fast enough to capture Sandi, Kay and Jenny before the song was over. Next time, I promise!!!

We sang with a lot of spirit in a relaxed way, and really enjoyed ourselves, which the residents told us they very much appreciated and enjoyed our group’s performance. This Friday we will be on the stage at the track at Holy Trinity Catholic High School, for the Relay for Life at 6 pm, playing our 2013 set list.
