On Wed, August 15, our Rufty-Holmes Guitar Class went to perform and entertain for a social party for the St. John's Lutheran Choir group.   We met at a local community clubhouse, where about 40 or so choir members gathered for food and fellowship.

About five guitar students and two teachers played a selection of about 8-10 songs, which included two medleys, a summertime medley with "Under the Boardwalk" and "My Girl", and a love medley featuring two Elvis songs, "Can't Help Falling in Love" and "Love Me Tender", along with the Beatles song "And I Love Her."  Additional songs included "Morning Has Broken";  the Monkees hit "Daydream Believer"; and ending with a Jimmy Buffet song "Margaritaville."

One song we didn't play that night, but are working on is "Summer Breeze" by Seals & Croft.  Some other new songs we may be learning are "Here, There & Everywhere" (Beatles); "Heart of Gold" (Neil Young); and a rocking medley of "La Bamba/Twist & Shout."

As you can see, we like to have fun in our guitar class.  I'd like to extend two invitations to anyone reading this.  

  • First of all, if you are 50 or older, and would like to have the joy of learning guitar with us, come and join the fun
  • Secondly, if you have a group and would like for us to come provide some entertainment, please call on us and we will try to schedule with you.

We are currently looking at scheduling a few concerts for the holiday season in November and December.  Let us know if you would like for us to come and entertain for you.
