That being said, we were thrilled this month to have hit on something that I think has the potential to be successful often: live music. We got in touch with the music department at up at CU and got paired with a couple of guys that came and played some New Orleans style Jazz (a percussionist and a saxaphone player) and they were great. We saw people come out to enjoy it that we've honestly never seen come to any past events, including people without kids (a group of folks we have a hard time enticing in particular) and people from other parts of Family Housing. People brought picnic dinners and we provided ice cream and lemonade...kids and adults alike were dancing and having such a nice time.....yay!
Setting up...Issac (the drummer) was really really awesome with the kids. They were so curious and he seemed almost excited to be showing them all his stuff and teaching them what everything does. Perfect!
