Fine Spirits To Sing For Habitat For Humanity North Collin County
100th Home Celebration
Saturday, Nov 7th, 6:30pm
The North Collin County Habitat for Humanity recently completed the 100th home in their Purple House Project, and they are celebrating with a 100th Home Gala on Saturday night, November 7th, at the Sheraton McKinney Grand Ballroom.
Fine Spirits will be singing at this “purple tie event.”
Guests are encouraged to wear or to accessorize in purple. There will be dinner, dancing, live music, and a video presentation highlighting the 100 homes built in North Collin County and the families living in them.
Tickets to the gala are available here and are $100 per person or $150 per couple.
There will also be a silent auction. Bidding has begun online at Benefit Bidding. Please consider participating for this worthy cause.
Please come and join us for Saturday In Paradise, “a musical trip on a caffeine drip.”
Last winter, Fine Spirits paired up with Jeannie Clark Fisher for Dance Night at the Depot in Allen, Tx, and we are proud to announce that we will be joining her again for another night of song and merriment.
On Saturday night, October 3, we will be performing at Bean Me Up Coffeehouse and Cafe in Sherman, Texas. Bean Me Up is located inside Kelly Square and was voted as Texoma’s Best Coffeehouse 2015.
Admission is a suggested donation of $5. “Out of this world” coffee and assorted desserts will be available for purchase.
Fine Spirits has produced our first ever music video, “Sing Your Way Home,” just in time for the 2015 Memorial Day weekend.
This video, however, is not about Fine Spirits. It 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.
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 who currently serve in our armed forces, send them a link to our video. Consider adding a personal note of thanks to them for their hard work.
Please think about sharing it with all of your email, Facebook, Twitter and other social media contacts so they can do the same for their loved ones.

Sing it, Pete!

As all our fans know, we released our first album, Happy Hour, last summer.
This past Thursday night, we went back into the recording studio to start work on our newest project. We don’t want to say too much, just yet, but Gary Tullier, our sound-master extraordinaire, is helping us put together something new.
The Tonya Rollins Benefit Concert & Chili Cook-Off
Come out to The First Christian Church in Anna, Tx on Saturday, March 28th, and help us fund a worthy cause. Local Mom Tonya Rollins is raising money for a double lung transplant.
The excitement will begin at 11am. We will be first up on the roster, singing some of our favorite songs. Local violinist Erin Mansur will take the stage next. And, finally, The Joey James Band will perform.
There will also be a chili cook-off and desserts, so come hungry. All donations raised will go to help Tonya with medical expenses. If you can’t make it to the Benefit and would still like to help, Tonya is taking donations on her Go Fund Me page.
Our album “Happy Hour” will also be available for purchase and a portion of those proceeds will be donated to Tonya.
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.

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!
