Parish Musical Fun Night
We recently attended a parish Musical Fun Night which included questions from 14 tracks previously available for those attending. It was a great nights entertaining, complete with a succulent 4 course Slovenian cuisine by courtesy of our gracious hosts, one chef and an extroverted husband who created our night’s entertainment; MC/ Quizmaster/ Music master. Progressive scores were paraded throughout the night with prizes given out mixed with good cheer and boundless hilarity.
At a cost of $32 per person where would one go to have a 4 course meal, whilst having so much fun amongst good company? But from those modest contributions the night still raised over $600 to be spread equally among 3 of our very active parish groups, namely the Social Justice group, St Vincent’s de Paul and the Malawi Support Group.
The tracks from which the questions or suitable lines / imitations requested were taken from :
Octopus garden – The Beatles
When I’m 64-The Beatles
A Backstage Pass – Johnny Cash
The Battle of New Orleans – Johnny Horton
Cotton eyed Joe-The chieftains
Home Among the Gum Trees –John Williamson
The Little White Duck –Burl Ives
The Red Rose Café. The Fureys
What’s up –Beccy Cole
Happy Jack – The Who
Old dogs, Children & Watermelon Wine -Tom T Hall
Sultan of swing –Dire Straits
Penny Lane- The Beatles
Okie from Muskogee - Merle Haggard
Above are some photos of some of the happy folk.
