    super!

    I loved it. Some great songs and performances! Next challenge for me is to learn how to "flow" with the musicians. Realized I tend to tough it out when I'm not sure we're in synch, Like, I'll sing my part no matter what they do. I think there's a higher degree of musicianship to be attained.
    Thanks to the Shelley's and Bill!

      more on this subject cuz I like it. I'm fascinated with how pro musicians can listen and respond to each other. Especially jazz musicians. I'd like to explore that, although it's a bit scary.

      Thank you Shelley, Bill, and Shelley for providing this opportunity for us. We learn and grow because of your caring, nurturing attitudes. It's so wonderful to have a place where we can learn to sing with professional instrumentalists and feel free to take risks with our performances. You (and all the singers) are THE BEST! I'm so grateful you do this for us. And I'm grateful to Julie, too, for providing the magnificent space!

  • Patty

    How can I find the list? Also, I don't know anybody in this group, are others coming alone? Kind of new to this whole meetup thing.

    July 4, 2014

    • Bev L.

      I'd give you 10 minutes, max, before you feel right at home. :) Pick a couple of your favorite 40s-ish standards. You'll love singing with live musicians!

      2 · July 4, 2014

    • Shelley B.

      There is no list but pick one or two standards you would like to sing and let us know what they are. If you have the music for them that would be helpful. If not, we will figure it out. This is all very casual and fun. You may look below at the conversations to see what others are singing.

  • Philip H.

    I am sorry I cannot make it after all. Have fun everyone!

    July 2, 2014

  • julie_gallaher

    Hi everyone - try and see if you can convince a singing friend to come with you. Our goal is to have between 15 and 20 attend so we can pay our musicians ;) Also, don't forget to bring party food - it makes it more festive.

    July 3, 2014

  • Jeannie

    My Baby Just Cares For Me, is my pick # 2

    July 3, 2014

  • Trudy C.

    I'll sing "Just Squeeze Me" & "The Man I Love". See you all on Sunday.

    July 2, 2014

  • Jackie C.

    Guess I neglected to actually say "Yes" too. Looking forward to my first meetup...see you all on Sunday.

    July 1, 2014

  • Bev L.

    Hmm. Chose my songs, Sugar and I'll Be Seeing You, but forgot to actually say I'm coming. See you Sunday. :)

    1 · June 30, 2014

  • Jackie C.

    Second song...how about "Birth of the Blues"?

    1 · June 29, 2014

  • Shelley B.

    Go ahead and choose a second song.

    June 28, 2014

      That's a big accomplishment! Congrats. Have a lovely day.

      June 23, 2014

    • Jeanette H.

      Thanks!

      June 28, 2014

  • Bev L.

    Oh, please don't move it. I'm looking forward to the evening.

    June 27, 2014

  • Philip H.

    It appears many of our singers will not be able to participate due to the 4th of July weekend. Shall we move this to the following Sunday, the 13th?

    June 27, 2014

    • Shelley B.

      I will be teaching at a jazz camp the following week and then most of July and August I will be gone, teaching at camps.

      June 27, 2014

  • Jackie C.

    I think I'll do "That's All". Hopefully that works.

    2 · June 25, 2014

  • Bev L.

    If we get second songs yet, I'd love to try out "Sugar," on you. :)

    1 · June 25, 2014

  • julie_gallaher

    I think I'll sing Making Whoopee

    2 · June 25, 2014

  • Jeannie

    Isn't it a lovely day to be caught in the rain. Irving Berlin (Top Hat)
    yummy

    1 · June 23, 2014

  • Bev L.

    Oh darn, just took another look and that song isn't on "the List." Let's go with my second choice, first, "I'll Be Seeing You."

    June 4, 2014

  • Bev L.

    Hoping I can try my potential audition songs out on you; you're all so supportive. I'll start with "Taking a Chance on Love." Then will wait patiently for my second song choice, hoping no one chooses it as their first :)

    June 4, 2014

  • Philip H.

    I will sing George and Ira Gershwin's "By Strauss". Thanks!

    1 · June 2, 2014

  • Dennis C

    Howz about "I Could Write A Book"?

    3 · June 2, 2014

  • Shelley B.

    Who is your favorite composer? Porter? Gershwin? Rogers? Hart? Pick a favorite song you wish to perform on the 6th. In a couple of weeks you may then choose a second song.
