Aloha! Well, Elvis sure was a nice guy and put in an appearance with us at the Grace UC hall on Tuesday, November 25th. We all had a blast posing with the King and singing songs with him. Our special guest was Elvis impersonator Skeet Deschaine of Simcoe, Ontario.
We played through a great repetoire of Elvis songs, including Blue Christmas, Are You Lonesome Tonight, Good Luck Charm, Return to Sender, All Shook Up, Hound Dog, Jailhouse Rock, I Can’t Help Falling in Love With You, White Christmas, and Love Me Tender. Elvis also gave out scarves and teddy bears to tender fans!
We also had a number of solo songs performed by DUH members and, of course, we can always count on Audrey for a joke and a song! That being a true statement, however, I wonder if she might be a little tiny bit of a bad influence on some of the other DUH members – judging by that underwear joke that Evelyn told us (at the mic!) following Audrey’s performance! Just kidding Audrey – you know we love you, jokes ‘n’ all!!! Besides, Skeet’s joke was probably the most notorious one to ever have been uttered in the hall of the Grace United Church…..! (So Audrey and Evelyn are both off the hook!)
There really are a lot of pictures to post (50!), mostly because the lighting was low and my camera wanted to hold the lense open longer, plus the subjects kept moving and grooving to the music – or plain just laughing! Elvis was also very shiny, even though he was wearing black, which caused some of his shots to come out slightly blurred – but it’s just his bling that is causing that! Also some of our DUH members were sporting “the sideburns”, so I tried to get as many people in as possible, and at the end of the night we enjoyed posing for a group shot with the King!
Enjoy the slide show 🙂
