Cariboo Gold Dance and sing-a-long Sunday

If you love to dance or just listen and sing along to some great big band music of the 30s, 40s and 50s you won’t want to miss the Cariboo Gold Dance Band performance at the Elks Hall this Sunday afternoon.

Cariboo Gold will be hosting a, concert/dance/sing-a-long event for the whole family Sunday, Nov. 18 from 2 to 4:30 p.m. “We have people who love to do ballroom dancing and listen to the old type of music,” says Elks member Arnie Zimmerman. “We encourage everyone to come out.”

Sing-a-long booklets will also be available for those who would like to sing some of the old songs. Some of the dancing songs people can expect to hear are the foxtrot songs, Satin Dool, String of Pearls, Call Me Irresponsible, and Sunny Side of the Street; the waltz songs Annie’s Song and Always; ballad/rumba song Stormy Weather; jive songs Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy and My Blue Heaven.

Sing-a-long songs include Hail, Hail, the Gang’s All Here; Heart of my Heart (quick step); K-K-Katy/Goodbye Broadway, Hello France/Mademoiselle from Armentiers (quick step/two step); Over There/You’re  a Grand Old Flag (march); Bill Bailey/The Bowery (quick step); Tiger Rag (quick step); Look for the Silver Lining (foxtrot); It Don’t Mean a Thing (jive); Edelweiss (waltz); Sentimental Journey (ballad); and In the Mood (jive).

And that’s just in the first set. Many more popular songs are included in the second set.

Admission is $10 for adults and free for children under 12.

Refreshments will be available by donation.

The event is sponsored by and a fundraiser for the Williams Lake Elks. Last April Zimmerman says there was a good turn-out for the Cariboo Gold event and everyone enjoyed it immensely.

“We really appreciate the Cariboo Gold for putting on this event and hope to do it more often, depending on the interest.”
