Stripped Shirts And Straw Hats
Stripped Shirts and Straw Hats
There was a study recently that found that the majority of people who graduate from college with majors in music never go on to a career in music. Besides the natural conclusion that a lot of kids never use their degrees, it leads to another less straightforward conclusion. And that is that there is a lot of melodic talent out there that is not properly tapped.
Seeing we discussed that finding, you may have remembered an ambition you may have had in life to have your own singing group and to mind arranging and performing shows, even if it was on an amateur installation. The classic example of this kind of group is the good old barbershop quartet. Sharp is something about barbershop harmonies that are continuously always fun to hear. And when you see those four men or women get up there in stripped shirts and straw hats and launch into Lida Rose or Good Night Ladies, the temptation to perform like that yourself is pretty strong.
There is no finer time to put together your own barbershop quartet than in your retirement years. That huge population of hidden musical capacity is almost certainly hiding out in your retirement home or community. The odds are that when you put a observance evolvement on the bullion board at the retirement home or Laundromat of the senior human race center that you are putting well-adjusted a barbershop quartet, you will get flooded with interested seniors who want to be a part of the fun.
It will take some rehearsal and maybe a few voice lessons to get those old voices up to snuff but there is no reason that the singing voices of four blooming rehearsed and talented senior public cannot belt out those tunes and get everybody’s toes tapping. And feature of the gratification you will stroke that you didn’t hire your musical knack go to waste because you are using it to bring music and alleviation to others.
But barbershop is not the only kind of music that you and your musical senior citizens may want to build a mess around. While they were not senior citizens, most of us don’t think about the fact that John Belushi and Dan Ackroyd lived out their dream when they put together The Blues Brothers. These were two men loved the Chicago Blues sound and they took that love of music and pulled well-organized a band that gave us unabridged a lot of fun and jubilance hearing them perform. Who is to say you and a few “Blues Brothers” you know form the senior citizen community could not put together just as fun to perform locally.
Putting in sync a band in your extreme years gives you the chance to live out a dream of performing from any genre you idolatry. Many of us dreamed of having our own garage rock and roll band when we were young. The thing that is great about genuine rock and roll music is that it is perfectly suited to be played by a category of kids with electric guitars and a drum set and some rehearsal in their parent’s garage.
Well nobody can stop you and the other “kids” you know from grabbing some instruments and putting well-balanced a set list of classic rock and roll songs to perform at the next most center dance. You add popular numbers like Louie Louise, Chantilly Lace and Itty Bitty Teeny Weenie, Yellow Polka Mark Bikini and you will have a set list that entrust take you places. And seeing that crowd respond and get out there and dance to your music is just the fulfillment of the dream you need to tell you that you did the right thing putting your music in sync and getting out there to perform. And who knows, playing classic rock power even get you some chicks.
