Come and Eat Food and Make Music

We thought it would be nice to have lots of food in celebration of any and every holiday that you celebrate- on SUNDAY NIGHT, DECEMBER 22nd.  Since, several members said they were going to be out of town the following week, we decided to move it up a week. 

Since it is a Weekend Night, we'll start early-at 6:30. So come by at 6:30, we'll start with food, and around 7:45 begin to play music. Since it is a week night, we will try to end by 10:00.

During dinner, we will be featuring a DVD by one of our members, David,  (check out his site http://www.brantli.com.) Great music to enhance our dining experience.

Also, what are you doing on Friday night, December 20th?  Please contact another one of our members, Janine, to learn more about the  Angel Choir's Fundraising Event; The HOLIDAY MUSIC DESSERT EXTRAVAGANZA @ The Hardy Residence on Dec 20 @ 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm. It is a non-profit organization whose mission is "to provide restorative support and inspiration to cancer patients and survivors through musical performance." Here is the organization's website: http://angelchoir.org Click on the Events Link to learn more. 


Hope to see everyone on SUNDAY NIGHT, DECEMBER, 22nd at 6:30ish PM.

      This guy also has some great duets of Beatles songs with a partner of his - as Frank says, they have the harmonies down pat...

      Robert - by the way, we were chatting about the classic folk picking style (aka travis picking) that is ever present within the Llewyn Davis movie - the following You Tube vid does a masterful job of breaking it down using a CSN song to learn on . http://www.youtube.co...­

    If anyone is unfamiliar with "San Francisco Bay Blues" by Clapton, it's on YouTube. As I can't sing worth a %*&#, I'll need immense help in carrying the vocals.

    December 21, 2013

  • doctorzuma

    Great to see so many people posting songs, I'm trying to get two of mine ready.

    December 9, 2013

    As I am a tech troglodyte, I'm having difficulty in posting multi-page songs. Should anyone wish to familiarize themselves in advance, I'll be bringing sheet music or lyric/chord sheets for:

    1) "San Francisco Bay Blues" in C by Clapton.
    2) "Fortunate One" in G by Fogarty.
    3) "On the Road Again" in C by Willie.

    • andy t

      Frank, can you save the file as a .doc or a .pdf? I'm old fashioned and cannot open a .docx. Thanks.

      December 8, 2013

    • Frank T.

      Done.

    Hi All, It'll be a challenge - because we don't all sing like Darlene Love, or Bono - but working on Christmas, Baby Please Come Home. That's my all time fave. By the way, Ronnie Spector is playing her usual free Christmas show in the Wolf Den at Mohegan Sun on Friday night (12/13) at 8:00 PM. I've gone the past two years, and she and her band really kick it. It's free - you just show up a couple of hours early and sit on the carpet until they open the theatre..

    I was looking forward to this, but alas, something is conflicting.
    Will get to play with you guys yet.

    for the benefit on the 20th, you will get to see Jazz Legend DONN TRENNER on the piano! There will be soloists and choral performances. Would love to see you all there. It's for a very good cause. Also, let me know if you would be interested in singing at this event. There is one rehearsal at 4:00 pm on the 15th.

    December 5, 2013

    • doctorzuma

      I just want to add that Janine is a member of the Angel Choir and will be performing at the event.

      December 5, 2013

  • Andrea M

    looking forward to it!

    December 5, 2013

    Sounds like fun! See y'all on the 22nd.
