Come SING! on December 2!

We had such fun in late October "going places" that SING! SING! SING! welcomes you to our next performance, titled GOING PLACES 2! on Wednesday, December 2 from 7 - 8:30 p.m. at The Triad, with singer/pianist Anne Phillips and song devotee Michael Shepley as your hosts.

There are so many great songs about towns, cities, states, countries and travel that we've put together another bill of songs not duplicated from our last sing-in.

Get ready to warble Sentimental Journey, Shuffle Off to Buffalo, It Happened in Monterey, Take the "A" Train and many others.

One devoted fan (and we're equally as devoted to you, Amy) wrote, "Thanks for holding these utterly joyous and re-energizing and companionable evenings." And now we have one official "follower" on our blog ... thanks, Chas!

If you've got some suggestions for songs, become a follower of this blog or email us at shepleymichael@gmail.com or annep14@gmail.com.

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 lyric sheets, and some anecdotal information to start us off, but the fun is that everyone joins together in song. It really beats the blues.

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! Bring friends! Let's get the holiday season going with a bang. (And mark your calendars for Jan. 6 for our next SING! night. We couldn't do it without you!)

- Anne and Michael
