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.

Christmas Performance Upcoming

Come See Fine Spirits Perform At

 “Cocoa, Cookies, and Carols”, a Christmas Variety Show

CocoaCookiesAndCarols

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.

Why not take a break and join us at the Allen Heritage Center & Train Depot at 7pm on Friday night, December 12, or at 2pm, Saturday afternoon, December 13th? 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.

Donation is requested in lieu of admission. And don’t worry about missing out on the mall: We’ll have our CD “Happy Hour” available to buy so you can stuff all your stockings in style this year.

‘Tis The Season At Starbucks

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!

“Extra! Extra! Read All About It!”

McKinney Courier-Gazette May 31, 2014

 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.

We sang our new arrangement of ‘The Star Spangled Banner” for the Allen Americans at the Allen Events Center. Our rendition was well received considering the compliments and the fact that none of us got checked into the boards as we shuffled off the ice.

The Allen Americans beat The St. Charles Chill 3-1.  It’s a great venue and a well run & entertaining event.

Prelude to Midnight Mass

Look Up Children, there’s a star in the sky!

Fine Spirits was excited to be part of ringing in Christmas at St Gabriel the Archangel by singing prelude music with the choir and several talented soloists.  Our own lead, Carl Reinelt, closed out the prelude music by presenting  “Sweet Little Jesus Boy”… a cappella of course!

Thanks to Music Director, David Cloutier, for including us again this year. Welcome Christmas.

We recently enjoyed the opportunity to welcome many  Allen Americans (and a handful of Brampton Beast) fans to a December game by caroling on the concourse as they arrived for the game.  Thanks to fans and friends who sang along and danced with holiday spirit!

We will be singing The National Anthem for a game against St Charles on Sunday, January 26th.  It is a great setting and so close to home.

Consider coming out to sing with us and take in a game.
