Fine Spirits performed at Dance Night at the Depot in Allen, Tx on March 28, 2015.

We boogied down last night in Allen, Texas,  at Dance Night at the Depot, crooning some fine tunes. When we weren’t singing, we hit the dance floor a bit with our wives as Jeannie Clark Fisher serenaded everyone sweetly.

It was our first time to publicly perform three of our newest songs: “Happy Together,” “A Little Help From My Friends,” and “Joy To The World (Jeremiah Was A Bullfrog).”

If you missed us, be sure to catch us next week at the Tonya Rollins Benefit Concert and Chili Cook-Off in Anna, Tx as we help raise funds for her lung transplant.

Upcoming Performance: Dance With Us in March

Come Boogie Down With Us At

The First Annual “Dance Night at the Depot”

Dance Night at the Depot, Saturday March 14, 2015

It’s been a cold winter. A little ice. And then some snow. And then some more snow. Got cabin fever? Need to get out of the house and have a good time? Wanna cut the rug?  Shake it up, baby?

Why not dust off those dancing shoes, grab your partner, and come shake your groove thing with us at the Allen Heritage Center & Train Depot at 7pm on Saturday night, March 14th? We’ll be joining Jeannie Clark Fisher for some toe-tapping tunes. Get out on the floor and show everyone your moves, or just be a wallflower and enjoy the music.

 Suggested donation for admission is $5. After you’ve busted some major moves and tripped the lights fantastic, splurge on a dessert or two. And don’t go home empty handed; our album “Happy Hour” will be available for purchase.

Audition Makes The News

February means our annual trip to Grand Prairie to audition for the National Anthem at Lone Star Park. The cameras caught us and some other local acts as we all did our best rendition, vying for a spot to sing The Star Spangled Banner at the horse races.

Performing at Lone Star Park has become a Fine Spirits tradition in recent years. Stay tuned to find out if and when we’ll be doing the honors this year!

It’s that time of year again. Snow balls and sleigh bells. Carols and hot cocoa. Rushing around a crowded shopping mall looking for the perfect prezzie.

We’ll be crooning some holiday tunes at the Cocoa, Cookies, and Carols Christmas Variety Show, presented by Note-ably North Texas Chorus. They’re the Allen, Tx chapter of The Sweet Adelines International, the female barbershop association.

Fine Spirits performed at Starbucks in McKinney, Saturday, Dec 6, 2014

Fine Spirits performed at Starbucks in McKinney, Saturday, Dec 6, 2014

We got downright jolly this morning at the Starbucks at Eldorado and Hardin in McKinney, singing some Christmas tunes as the holiday shoppers came in for their lattes and frappucinos. We jingled some bells for Ole Saint Nick and heard some angels sweetly singly on high, all in four-part harmony.

If you missed us, be sure to catch us next week as we fa-la-la-lah-lahh (and possibly d-boww boww boww) at the “Cocoa, Cookies, and Carols” Christmas Variety Show presented by Note-ably North Texas Chorus. Our album Happy Hour will be available for sale at the show!

 If you live in McKinney and get the McKinney Courier-Gazette, you may have noticed some familiar faces in the paper when you read the morning news on Sunday. Fine Spirits made the front page! Our upcoming album release party on June 5th shared top billing with the newly proposed MISD budget. Students will be getting new Mac laptops, and we are throwing a party at Cafe Malaga.

The reporter, Chris Beattie, hung out with us at one of our rehearsals in Carl’s garage, and did a wonderful write-up about our group. On the paper’s website, Chris also included a video of us practicing the song “With A Little Help From My Friends.”

Click on the screenshot below to see the video, and then come out to join the party on June 5th.
