Please join the South Hills SCU group on June 24th at 12:30pm to set up and at 1 pm to play at the Millvale Park Bike Trail. Bring a chair and a music stand.

We'll have copies of the music for our playlist available then, but please practice the songs on your own as well. Better yet, join us on June 19th at Riley's Pour House for a causal jam and eating and drinking session. The fun at Riley's starts at 7pm and goes until 9pm. Copies of the playlist music will be available for you to borrow.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact Patty Williams at [masked] or 412/[masked].

All the songs for the playlist can be found here:
