Music, Music Music!
Banjos have returned this Summer of 2022 to the Renton Sr Center. Seattle Banjos and Friends always enjoy filling the lunch hour, 11am to 12:30pm on the second Tuesday of the Month. We are working on a number of the old favorite, "Riverland" and New Orleans Jazz tunes. Also adding some Beatles to Willie Nelson and other foot-stomping music has shaken it up a bit!
Banjo is a true American Instrument, and the 4 string plectrum and tenor banjos were in the Orchestra Pits of major orchestras around the country from 1900 until 1930's. And pizza parlors kept the players well fed and the music alive. And the 5 string banjo has tremendous following. We aim to keep Banjo Alive.
We are "playing around" at home and in very small groups. It is wonderful to hear some folks singing, and others even dancing as the banjo plays on! Oh, we are delighted to hear the laughs and folks singing along.
For most of 2022 we are working on the Seattle Banjo & Friends favorite tunes.
If you are looking for some information on how you might become more involved in music during these crazy times, Seattle Banjos & Friends are here to offer suggestins and point you in the musical direction!
Whether the preferred step is the "Charleston" dance or even a Hula Dance with ukulele background , feel free to get out of your seat and DANCE!
