Oldies but Goodies

BreakTWOCRPDOur students listen to all kinds of music. They enjoy singing and participating in glee club type singing events. During the July meeting attended by the President, Leonardjon L Buenavista and the VP of Field Ops, Albert Bunoan, they had group singing during their breaks. Leonardjon played guitar and Albert led the group.

To their amazement, some of the songs the group enjoyed were the oldies but goodies songs. Songs of the 50’s. Who would believe they knew songs like, “Teddy Bear” by Elvis Presley and “Puppy Love” by Paul Anka? And how about Both Leonardjon and Albert were pleasantly surprised.

A SAS Ai board member, Tina, who lives in Toronto, Canada and who has since retired from her government job was there in Tagudin vacationing at the same time the meeting with the scholars was held. She came by and attended the meeting, staying to visit with both Albert and Leonardjon afterward. She commented she also liked the Oldies but Goodies because the songs are melodic and easy to sing.

In the conversation Tina recalled attending the wedding of a dear colleague’s son, Jim – whom Albert and Leonardjon knew.

“And how did that go?” asked Albert. Jim was his classmate at SAS. “And who did ole Jimbo marry?”

“The band that played the wedding was the thing. I mean they were good,” Tina beamed. “A friend suggested they Google  Wedding Band Toronto (search engine prompts) and voilà! These guys were outright fabulous.”

“Did they play Unchained Melody?” Leonardjon interjected. “That’s one of my favorites.”

“Oh yes!” Tina replied. “Many people who attended the wedding commented positively and gave them high marks. They couldn’t stop singing with the band… it was something.”

Sounds like we’ll have to pay Tina a special visit in Toronto. Who knows? We might get lucky and listen to this Toronto Wedding Band.
