SING! SING! SING! welcomes you to our next performance, titled GOING PLACES! on Wednesday, October 21 at 7 p.m. at The Triad, with singer/pianist Anne Phillips and song devotee Michael Shepley as your hosts.
The mind reels thinking of wonderful songs about places -- I've Got a Gal in Kalamazoo, Sentimental Journey, Fly Me to the Moon, Chicago, etc. We're still making lists.
If you've got some suggestions for songs, become a follower of this blog or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
We had a great time at the last SING, with songs about dancing. The crowd offered very smooth interpretations of Dancing in the Dark, It Only Happens When I Dance With You, and Begin the Beguine, and jazzed up the place with Let Yourself Go and The Joint is Jumpin'. We customarily sing about 20 songs, and the evening concludes at 8:45 or 9 p.m.
If you're new to this blog or to SING! SING! SING!, we believe in reviving the great old songs (traditionally 1920s to 1950s, with some exceptions) with you. We have the place, the piano, complete lyrics sheets, and some anecdotal information to start us off, but the fun is that everyone joins together in song. It really beats the blues.
One fan wrote, "Thanks for holding these utterly joyous and re-energizing and companionable evenings." Who could ask for anything more?
The Triad is located at 158 West 72nd Street, between Broadway and Columbus -- right above the Turkish restaurant on the south side of the street. There are stairs to the second floor, but we can provide an elevator if needed. $10 cover; two-drink minimum (cash only, please). Need more information? Call Michael Shepley at 212-786-9064 or Anne Phillips at 212-580-2349. We can also tailor our material for birthdays, anniversaries or benefits -- everyone has fun.
See you soon!
- Anne and Michael
