An Outdoor Concert

Thursday started with an appointment with a draperies consultant to discuss new drapes for the big living room window and the sliding glass door.  We saw some interesting material and the consultant measured everything.  We decided to meet at her shop next week to review the prices and make a final decision.  We’ve had two other people out for suggestions and the prices were very different, so it’ll be interesting to see what this one is.

Thursday afternoon there was an outdoor concert at Clubhouse 2.  We got there around 4:30 to get some dinner.  They had a catered dinner of hot dogs or roasted chicken.  We had the chicken with potato salad that was really good.  We brought our own beverages (a nice Zinfandel). 

The actual concert started at 6:00.  The band was Doc Anello and the Swing Machine.  I’m sure you’ve heard of them, and probably have one of their CDs.  HUH.  Anyway it was a good group and they played music from the 40s, 50s, & 60s.  The leader, Doc, sang, and they also had a female vocalist, Madeline Vergari.  It turns out that they play regularity at Disneyland for dancing.IMG_2839

There was a small dance floor that was well used.IMG_2845 And the dancing even spread into the walkways.IMG_2838 Clubhouse 2 is a nice setting for the concert as there’s a large patio with tables, and a large grass area for setting up chairs.IMG_2836 We ate on the patio, and then when the music started we moved to lawn chairs so we could enjoy the music without getting blasted.  We even danced a few times, and my hip didn’t bother me a bit.

There’s one more concert this summer on September 3, so call us if you would like to go.  It was a lot of fun.
