“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.

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. 

Memorial Day 2015 from Fine Spirits.

‘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!
