And then, COVID happened . . .

but we play on!
20-4.7 Zoom Jam.jpg
Most of the costumes depict a particular song in our songbook.  Can you guess? . . . 
 20-10.27 Halloween Strum.jpg
Some of the songs depicted include:  Monster Mash, People Are Strange, Addams Family, Old Town Road, Love Potion Number Nine, Up Here in Canada, Witchy Woman, Yellow Bird, It's All Going to Pot, Island Style, Ex's and Oh's, Red Roses for a Blue Lady,  and Hound Dog.
THEN CAME The HOLIDAYS of 2020 . . .
We were all so sad that we could not come together in person - thanks to Covid.   So Krista Kehl had seen this brilliant idea to create a work of art wherein we could all gather for a Christmas dinner.  Our own Artiste Extraordinaire Miguel Almanza drew all our strummers -- with each person bringing something of his/her choice to the table! . . . 
Wendy invites you to Christmas dinner - just RSVP with what you will be bringing to the table!  I'm making martinis!  Krista and Miguel are the first to arrive and they brought tacos!

Yay!  People are flooding in!  Looks like we'll need a bigger table!

Finding this beautiful way to connect, even through our social isolation, was so heartwarming -- and Miguel's art work was so beautiful -- it was featured in the Desert Sun news . . .
