Ice Cream & Fine Spirits!

We look forward to strolling around Chestnut Square and serving up scoops of our cool and creamy sound to the guests of the 22nd Annual Killis Melton Ice Cream Crank Off. We hope to see you there…in the square.  Our A Cappella flavor is made with only four of the finest, all natural, ingredients.  Bass, Baritone, Lead & Tenor make for a smooth blend on a warm North Texas Summer day. In addition to strolling and singing some nostalgic songs, we will also dish out an upbeat set of our usual fare, starting at about 2:30pm on the main stage.    See you there!

“Sing Your Way Home” is a tribute to all those who have served and sacrificed.

We hope it showcases the courage and the loving sacrifice of every soldier who now defends or has ever defended our country. We also salute their families who gave up loved ones for months or even years, some who lost them forever.

If you have family or friends who have served or lost someone who served in our armed forces,  send them the link . Consider adding a personal note of thanks to them for their service.

…will sing for Hugs…Cafe

We had a great time helping Hugs Cafe celebrate their first year anniversary in downtown McKinney. The food is excellent and the service too.  But what brings it all together for any patron is the teamwork and warm hospitality.  All employees are visibly happy to be working on the team.  Marty is pictured with us below.  She kept things lively with her dancing to our songs a the front door.  Ruth Thompson and team have built a special place for all to visit. If you would like to learn more about Ruth and the Hugs non-profit mission, please see this article in the Dallas Observer.

Summer…y of Events

Here is a quick post to catch up.  We have each had a busy summer with varied trips and projects.

Fine Spirits was honored to sing “The Star Spangled Banner” and “God Bless America” at the Westin Galleria Dallas, to open the spring conference for  The Construction Owners Association of America (COAA). Our thanks to Lisa DeGolyer and the COAA for their patriotism.

Ted & Chris were smart to get some projects around home done early in the season, beating the heat as much as possible.  Ted installed laminate flooring throughout most of his house, while Chris did some stonework/landscaping for the yard. Ted and Allyson are also expecting!  We can’t wait till their little singer arrives in the fall.

Pete and his son took a trip to the Boy Scout High Adventure camp, Sea Base, in the Florida Keys.  He also spent July 4th in Southwest Arizona and enjoyed a high school reunion in Plattsburgh NY.

Carl put a nice book end on his summer.  He and Maria just returned from a wonderful trip to Greece, Crete and a few other island hops.  They avoided the Texas 100+ degree days…to boot!  Amid all the activity, Fine Spirits got together when we could to work on some new arrangements for the fall.  We are still polishing and hope you will like them as much as we do.

We wish you all well as summer winds down and  shifts into autumn.

Memorial Day Honors 2016

Since posting our video and recording of “Sing your Way Home” we have been asked to perform it for some special occasions over this past year. It is always well received and moving for us to sing. In gratitude for all who served and sacrificed, this is our way to remember.  We hope it will be a way for you to remember this Memorial Day too:

Im_going_home

This video is a tribute to those in military service who often travel so far away from home and give up so much.

The song speaks to us about the simple but profound joy of belonging, of having a place to return to at the end of the day or the end of a journey. It reminds us that, at the end of every battle, there is a resting place where we are accepted and loved and missed.

We hope it showcases the courage and the loving sacrifice of every soldier who now defends or has ever defended our country. In it, we also salute their families who gave up fathers, daughters, aunts, husbands, mothers, wives, uncles, and sons, for months or even years, some who lost them forever.

Click here to watch the video on our You Tube channel.

You will find no marching bands or 21-gun-salutes in this work.  It is about something much deeper, more timeless, and much more intimate. It is about family and country. It is about the ties that bind. It is about love that endures great distances and much time apart. It is about home.

We sincerely hope you enjoy it.  If you have family or friends who have served or lost someone who served in our armed forces,  send them a link to our video. Consider adding a personal note of thanks to them for their hard work.
