Good Ol' Fashioned Fun!

This past Saturday I attended our R.S. Conference with my friend, Amy. Matt's barbershop group was asked to perform during a segment of "Emma's Garden Party"(a play where Emma Smith welcomes each R.S. president (from past to present) to her "garden party").

As each president enters, a narrator describes what was going on during that time period in America. She, the R.S. president, then shares a few experiences/uplifting quotes from her presidency. As the decades changed, music from that era was played. During the 1900's, Matt's group sang a song. After the play they were asked to sing around each table while we mingled and ate our "garden" lunch.

From left to right: Matt, Rick Finnlayson, Danny Brew, Tony Eason.
I don't think this sister wanted to be sung to!
A few videos I took from my seat:

  3. These guys are a lot of fun to sing with. I'll miss them when we leave. The bass, Danny, is 75 years old. The other two, Rick (tall guy) and Tony (bald guy) are Danny's sons in law. We sound pretty good!
