Tonite was such a fun nite….Our Girls from the park, Denim and Diamonds performed. They performed music from the 30’s 40’s 50’s and 60’s.
The duo is comprised of Georgina Holiday and Jami Asselin. The came to our park in December wanting to bring in their Coleman popup camper, after the 1st of the year. They were new to the Winter Texan circuit and was trying to add some more performances to their tour of the Winter Texan Parks. Debbie and Rick were kind enough to give them a spot as close to the shower room as possible and in between 2 other campers to give them protection from the wind. Jami arrived with her husband first and Georgina arrived later. We’ve have all felt so bad for them staying many cold nites in a pop up. They say it is plenty warm but the conveniences are just not their as we have in our RVs. They have spent plenty of time in the halls practicing and we have gotten to know them. The are so full of fun, and excitement. I think most all of us admire their determination to follow their dream. We were so excited to finally see their show.
We had our friends from Tropic Winds come, Cheryl and Linda, and they brought their neighbors, who were actually from Norway. Cheryl and Linda are actually from back home. Seatonville. They are good friends with our daughter Tammy. They use to work with her. We arrived early and got front row seats. Finally at 7 the show started. They sang a lot of the oldies. OMG. What a voice they both had.
Georgiana sang most of the songs and Jami sang harmony. They Jami sang some of her own. They sang oldies from Patti Page, Brenda Lee, and Anne Murray. Jami did some wonderful Tanya Tucker.
At one point they went out and picked on our neighbor Mike and brought him up on stage. They tried to get him to dance….lol….He had a problem getting the beat…lol…But we all got a GOOD LAUGH ,…..even his wife LauriBeth…
We had a short break and continued on with the show. The girls kept encouraging dancing. Finally they called out to the line dancers to come up and they did a song line dancing.
And they the most Embarrassing thing happened. “They Came After Me”……They made me come up and stage and sit on a stool….I put on sunglasses and they put a feather Boa around my neck….So so embarrassed…lol…Finally they starting singing and wanted me to sing the chorus. Hahaha….I don’t even remember what it was, other than it was some kind of Doo Wop song……Finally at last it was over….Whew….back to my seat I went…..
They sang to the Veterans, Anniversary’s and to all the February Birthdays. The most moving song for me was their Rendition of “Wings Beneath My Wings” So beautiful. The show was finally over and time to go home. It was a Grand Show. The audience LOVE THEM….It was a full 2 hours of fun and Entertainment.
