Ann D’Alessandro –
The Cardboard Derby at Ski Roundtop is always a Winter highlight around here and it is coming up in less than two weeks! We will be there all day and hope to see you! You still have time to get a team together and make a wonderful cardboard vessel that will hopefully slide you down the snowtubing hill to victory! This year’s theme is “Barnyard Bonanza” so we can’t wait to see your creativity at work! You still have time to register for the Early Bird Special – just get your registration to Ski Roundtop by this Saturday! (You can also register the day of the event.)

Ann D’Alessandro – So excited for the Choir next week!!!
The Loudest Sound Ever Heard / Chase The Kangaroo Tour 2012
Coming to Manheim BIC/Warehouse 54 on Thursday, Nov. 8th at 7:30PM. (Doors at 6:30PM)
The Choir consists of Derri Daugherty, Vocals and Guitar, Steve Hindalong, Drums and Vocals, Tim Chandler, Bass, Dan Michaels on Sax & Lyricon.
“This subtle and often introspective band has built a loyal following in the course of its career, a following that has seen them through countless national and international tours, recording hiatuses, a Grammy nomination, a Dove award, and in the past two years, a rejuvenated recording and touring schedule that rivals the band’s late ’80s – mid ’90s pace. Says Daugherty, “you get your second wind after a while – there’s the appearance of success, and what an artist would consider real success, which is making great music and writing songs in the hope that people will want to listen for a lot of years. And we’ve never had big commercial success, but we feel like we’ve really had that kind of artistic success that is long term.”
“It’s been said that in the music business, indie is the new major. Artists are experimenting with new models of funding, recording, touring and sharing their music in ways that confound many large labels, and give artists the freedom to forge new paths to connect their music to fans. It’s within this landscape that iconic alternative rock band The Choir, alums of the major label system, returns with their latest full-length album, The Loudest Sound Ever Heard, their 14th, on their own Galaxy 21 label.”

This is going to be a great show and I hope to see you there! Tickets will also be available at the door.

Happy Winning Wednesday! Since we are celebrating “Christmas in July” on this Winning Wednesday, I thought that it would be appropriate to share some new Christmas music! (Brand New!) I Love Christmas music, but New Christmas music – even better! If you were at the “Called To Love Tour” concert on Nov. 4th then you got to see Jason Gray. That was the first time that I got to see him and just loved him and his music. He is such a genuine and gentle person and his music is great too! This song is called “Easier – Song of the Wiseman” and is written by Jason Gray and Joel Hanson (from PFR). Enjoy & Merry Christmas in July!
