hobbitwoman Singalong songs for St. Patrick's Day (47) RE: Singalong songs for St. Patrick's Day 08 Mar 02

This is precisely why I've stopped going to our local St. Patrick's day dinner. Last year the entertainment was a woman and her son who speciality was Frank Sinatra numbers. The older members of the organization that sponsors the dinner want music they can dance to! The younger ones, my brother and his lot, have tried to introduce Irish music to the event, but it goes over like a lead balloon with the older ones (who all profess to be Irish!). I don't know, maybe we give them headaches with all our banging on the tables and singing at the top of our lungs.
