Crooner Tino Tupas returned from vacation this week. He’s been coming to Community Karaoke parties for many, many years, and everyone enjoys his smooth, pleasant renditions of old-time ballads, including his choice on Sept. 15, “Traveling Man.”
David Noble suggested a theme song for the group should be “Welcome to My Leisure World world.” Danna Sanders, who is new to the LW stage, did a fine job on Shania Twain’s “I’m Outta Here.” Richard Yokomi stepped up the tempo with the catchy “You Got It.” Shannon Harris had fun with “Splish Splash,” and Barbie May performed the country tune “Bed of Roses.”
Duets are so much fun, as singers try to harmonize and time it just right. Folks who entertained included Kenny Nortorleva, Susan Kelleghan, Eileen Merritt, Bob Barnum, Martin Rosendaal, Anna Le, Ric Dizon, Vita Villamor, Julie Nulad and Vinny Correnti.
The club thanks Alanna Eaby for her tasty treats. And the ice cream bars were a nice surprise.
Monday afternoon practice sessions in Clubhouse 6 can helpful for singers trying perfect their songs. It’s a fast-paced, casual atmosphere to try an unfamiliar tune from 1-3 p.m.
Karaoke parties are every Wednesday in Clubhouse 1 beginning at 5:30 p.m. All are welcome to sing or just enjoy the evening with friends and neighbors.
