Ice Cream & Fine Spirits!

We look forward to strolling around Chestnut Square and serving up scoops of our cool and creamy sound to the guests of the 22nd Annual Killis Melton Ice Cream Crank Off. We hope to see you there…in the square.  Our A Cappella flavor is made with only four of the finest, all natural, ingredients.  Bass, Baritone, Lead & Tenor make for a smooth blend on a warm North Texas Summer day. In addition to strolling and singing some nostalgic songs, we will also dish out an upbeat set of our usual fare, starting at about 2:30pm on the main stage.    See you there!

…will sing for Hugs…Cafe

We had a great time helping Hugs Cafe celebrate their first year anniversary in downtown McKinney. The food is excellent and the service too.  But what brings it all together for any patron is the teamwork and warm hospitality.  All employees are visibly happy to be working on the team.  Marty is pictured with us below.  She kept things lively with her dancing to our songs a the front door.  Ruth Thompson and team have built a special place for all to visit. If you would like to learn more about Ruth and the Hugs non-profit mission, please see this article in the Dallas Observer.

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.

Lone Star Park News Spot

What a beautiful day to make our annual trip down to Grand Prairie to audition to sing our National Anthem at Lone Star Park. In the past we were asked to sing on opening day for the Spring racing season.  We hope to get selected again.  It is a fun place to be on race day, with all the horses and hubbub.

While we were warming up in the uncommonly quiet courtyard area, a newsman smiled and said we “need more practice” and that we “better sing it again”.  They came over and set their cameras in front of us to sing once more.  With our warm up complete, Carl answered a few questions about us and we went in to our audition.

We all agreed that the 12 year old singer that went ahead of us (Liam), has a nice set of pipes.  A big sound from a small body.

We will let you know if we get selected to sing.

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

Christmas Eve prelude at St. Gabriel

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.
