What we're about

This group is for seasoned single professional individuals. It’s the original and first group of 50+ and Singles. I want to create a group that is dedicated to a more mature group of fun loving and still young individuals to come together and network and meet in an environment that is not a "dating" but rather a social group to enjoy good times and good cheer! There seems to be a lot of Happy Hour Groups dedicated to the 20, 30 & 40 year old's and that's fine but this is for the rest of us! I plan on having at least once a month on a Wednesday a Happy Hour Meet and Greet & usually a dinner or dancing on possibly a different night. I sometimes combine with my Fun Lovers of Travel & Local Events Group. Come join, have fun and make new friends!

It is my intent to bring people together to meet and enjoy eachother’s company and form new friendships! That is what drives me. Seeing smiling faces of those having fun and enjoying themselves is the best feeling I can have. There are many close friendships that have developed and this also warms my heart.

I do not mind questions if it is to clarify some confusion, however, I do put a lot of time, energy and sometimes personal money into doing this.

(organizers pay Meetup $89.95 every 6 months to have up to three sites + supplies, wrist bands, balloons, & shortfalls)

All I am asking is that before you ask a question, that might already be spelled out in the meetup, PLEASE take the time to CAREFULLY read it completely first.

If you have a complaint I would like to hear from you in private. Please don't post them on a meetup. I do not want negativity in the group and I have and will do all that I can to avoid that. I do remove people who are not polite or are not a good fit with group.

With all of that said, I love love love this group of wonderful people and hope 2019 is even more fun for all.

This is YOUR group….please help me make it greater!!

I am not fond of no shows and will remove you from the group if you have 2 no show. Please if something comes up, have the courtesy to change your RSVP to no.
Linda

Chris Trapper wsg Zoe Nygaard - 20 Front Street-Lake Orion

PURCHASE YOUR TICKET! $18.00 http://20frontstreet.com/event/chris-trapper-wsg-zoe-nygaard/ Chris Trapper is a storyteller. With his soulful, honeyed tenor, sly humor and an uncanny knack for melody, Chris has traveled the world over, performing to a dedicated and ever growing fan base with nothing but his guitar and his songs. Raised on Prine and Kristofferson, Trapper’s first foray in the music industry was as frontman of the critically acclaimed alt-rock band The Push Stars (Capitol Records). Over the past decade, Chris has become a modern day acoustic troubadour, performing over 150 dates a year as a headliner and sharing the stage with the likes of Colin Hay, Martin Sexton and even John Prine himself. The New York Times has called his work “classic pop perfection.” The new CD SYMPHONIES OF DIRT & DUST is a collection of 12 songs written and performed by Chris Trapper and Produced by Jason Meeker at Silver Top Studios, Boston, MA. Guest musicians include Dan McLoughlin of The Push Stars on bass and NYC singer/songwriter Amy Fairchild on harmonies. Chris Trapper Chris has toured North America and the UK with multi platinum songwriter COLIN HAY. In the Spring of 2013 Chris performed a duet with his songwriting idol JOHN PRINE at the Portsmouth Songwriter Festival. “It’s an incredibly rare musician, particularly in the world of popular music, who is able to forge a career based on quiet dignity and steadfast integrity.” The Buffalo News A prolific songwriter, Chris has garnered several high profile film placements including There’s Something About Mary (Ben Stiller, Cameron Diaz), The Devil Wears Prada (Meryl Streep), Say It Isn’t So (Heather Graham) Gun Shy (Sandra Bullock, Liam Neeson) and most recently, Some Kind of Beautiful *Pierce Brosnan, Salma Hayek) as well as significant television placements including All My Children, Women’s Murder Club, Malcolm In The Middle, a coveted placement in George Clooney’s final episode of ER, the theme song for WB Networks dramedy Pepper Dennis and a cameo on-screen appearance with the show’s star, Rebecca Romjin. Chris has written 7 songs with/for Canadian band GREAT BIG SEA, including their #1 single “Sea Of No Cares” from the certified-platinum Sea Of No Cares CD. Great Big Sea covered Trapper’s song “Everything Shines” and their version served as the debut single off their certified-gold Road Rage CD album. Chris’ songwriting collaborations with Great Big Sea earned him two prestigious SOCAN awards. Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty and Antigone Rising have performed other notable versions of Trapper’s songs. Trapper’s live show is a favorite among fans of alt–acoustic music. His on–stage persona is warm and inclusive, his organic understanding of classic pop melody, infectious. Audience members seem to particularly appreciate the lighthearted moments with the ukulele. “His humble sense of humility is what makes Trapper’s songs so strong… He makes you feel like you are the person he’s singing about.” Popdose https://www.christrapper.com Zoe Nygaard Zoe is an 18 year old singer-songwriter from Clarkston Michigan.
