Spoons Cafe

Thursday night was another perfect moment for us. We arrived at Spoons around 7:15, and we listened to some great music and enjoyed excellent food. The Ham it Up on sourdough was especially good.

There were some very talented artists, and it was nice to hear Kate singing again. Then we were asked to come up to the mic.

We started with “Longest Time” by Billy Joel. It included some of our own hamming it up, courtesy of, as usual, our tenor. The crowd ate it up.

Then we followed with Tom Lehrer’s “Poisoning Pigeons in the Park”, which got some laughs. Next, it was “Brown Eyed Girl” by Van Morrison, and finally, “It’s Alright” by Curtis Mayfield. We had no trouble getting people to clap their hands, especially when the song comes right out and tells you to. The space limitations prevented more of our choreography, but we did what we could.

It looks like we’ll be returning soon for a command performance. The audience is always great, and next time maybe I will have some cake.

A Day at the Races

Thursday, May 17, we’re going to sing the National Anthem again at Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie. We were there for opening day last month, and they asked us to return. We were happy to accept.

The race track is an exciting place. Many people come just to watch the races. Of course, many enjoy the wagering. And some simply love to watch the horses parade in from the Saddling Paddock. The park is really impressive, and the grounds are clean and well-maintained.

We’ll be performing at 6:05 PM. It’s going to be a beautiful evening, and we’re really looking forward to it.

Many thanks to the Lone Star Park staff, especially Holly Hart for welcoming us back.
