Summer in the City Singing with EDS !
• What we'll do Hello Fellow EDS'ers, 'Hot town summer in the city, back of my neck getting dirty & gritty'. Who wrote that song in 1966 ? We are all getting ready for warmer weather in our city by the bay ! And what better way than singing your way through the summer :-) Let me first of all, extend a hearty 'hey, hey, hey' welcome to our newest members ... Prafulla, Kate, Susan, Eliana, Bonnie, Larry & Yulia ! We hope to see you all very soon, hopefully at this upcoming event ! Mark your calendars for Sunday, June 24 at 2pm to join us for EDS # 49 ! Come share your voice, instrument, or just humming if that is what gives you the most musical pleasure. We usually split the afternoon into two 1 hour sets with a 1/2 hour snack/social break around 3:15-3:45pm. If you would like to bring something delicious to share, we invite you to add to our delectable selection of BYOB, munchies and finger foods. We will provide the songbooks, chord books for musicians & small instruments such as bongos, tambourines, kazoos & others for you to keep rhythm (or not ...). Your optional $5 donation helps us offset the minimal costs to keep bringing you these musical events, month after month. To those interested in making a donation on line, please notice the 'Chip-in' button on this page that makes it super easy to help support the continuation of our group. There is plenty of parking in the area allowing those with cars to drive. We have a few spots on a first-come first-served basis behind our building and other free street parking on Van Ness, North Point, Polk & Beach. Some road construction is starting to limit street parking on North Point so please try to get here early for the best parking options. Meters around the corner on Polk and the main Ghirardelli parking lot accessible from Beach and Larkin. But PLEASE ... don't leave valuables visible on your seat as break-in's target cars with something easy to grab through your window. We especially invite you to carpool if that works for you, but we are also easily accessible by bus lines 30, 19, 28, 47, 49 and the F muni. These make it easy to come by BART or Caltrain from other parts of the bay area. You can leave messages in the group for carpool requests. We love singing the best music of all generations including the Beatles, James Taylor, Eagles, Peter, Paul & Mary and Simon & Garfunkle to name a few of our favorites. And don't forget that you as a member, can ALWAYS check out our lyric AND chord books in the Files section of our meetup group at any time. Check out this Wall Street Journal article on music as 'A Healing Art'. ANOTHER important reason to come join us !!!! To sign off with one of my all-time favorite musical lyrics ... "And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love ... you make !" • What to bring Fun attitude for enjoying and sharing great music & laughter ! • Important to know No prior experience necessary. You don't even have to sing !!! Just come and listen and enjoy !

What we're about

Any who love to enjoy a good time, sing or play 60's, 70's, 80's music and more ... Bring your guitar, bongos, tambourine or just your voice that will blend in perfectly with everyone else's. We provide song books for you to pick your favorites. This is not for original compositions or performers. Think of it as kind of group karaoke.

Please be prepared to bring something good to eat to share. Preferably vegetarian. We provide the room, song books, chord books for musicians and hand instruments. A $5 optional donation is requested to cover basic overhead costs. If you are a musician and have a favorite song you want to play & share, bring 10 copies of lyrics sheets and 4 copies of music/chord/lyrics sheets. Let me know other q's an I will add them in here.
