TWO TOO LONG HEADLINES!
DECEMBER 5, 2017, DATELINE DENTON, TX--
And that is this: It's once again time for the by-now firmly established traditional Little Jack Melody and his Young Turks Christmas Miracle Singalong Gig at Dan's Silverleaf right here in Denton, TX, the by-now acknowledged hub of the unknown universe as we know it. This year marks the third iteration of the gig and it promises to be the best ever.
Right to the specs:
WHO: Little Jack Melody and his Young Turks, on this occasion, Brad Williams keyboards, Dave Monsch reeds, James Driscoll bass, and Chopper Bergeron drums.
WHO ELSE: Not to forget the honorable The Choirleader David Pierce, (still basking in the luxuriant sunset of recent triumphs with Cirque du Horror and the Holiday Tree Lighting on the Square), the brilliant Tony Baker on trombone, and the also brilliant too Carl Kleinsteuber on tuba.
WHO ELSE WHO ELSE: And you, The Live Audience of Revelers.
WHAT: The Third Annual Little Jack Melody et al Christmas Miracle Singalong Gig.
HOW'S THAT?: Works like this, wherein:
2. ...then pause, to be joined onstage by David Pierce, The Choirleader, trombonist Tony Baker, and tubist Carl Kleinsteuber, and then nine, count 'em, traditional Christmas carols will be played, and sung. Sung by the audience, led by David Pierce, in all earnestness or otherwise, choose your speed. Straight out of the hymn book. With sheet music/lyrics/songbooks to be passed out through the crowd by an available elf or angel of some sort.
And to make it truly miraculous, a hat will pass through the crowd as the singing is sung, and donations can be dropped in the hat, and then 100% of the collected monies will go straight to Denton's Our Daily Bread, the local community soup kitchen "...which serves a substantial noon meal Monday through Saturday and an evening meal Monday, without questions, to the hungry and homeless." Learn more about their wonderful program here: http://ourdailybreaddenton.org/.
3. And after the carols, the band takes a short break...
4. ...before returning for a last set of LJM music.
WHEN: Wednesday, December 13, with an 8:00 p.m. downbeat--an early night.
WHERE: Dan's Silverleaf, 103 Industrial Street, Denton, TX, 76201, http://danssilverleaf.com/
WHY: BECAUSE IT'S A TRADITION BY NOW ALREADY, LIKE JIMMY STEWART!
FOR THE RECORD: Last year's pass-the-hat brought in a record-breaking $238, which went straight to Our Daily Bread the next day, and was graciously, gracefully and appreciatively received. Thanks to your admirable generosity, LJM fans. And thanks to Our Daily Bread for all that you do.
THANKS AGAIN: In advance, and we do hope to see you there again. And like last year, the cover charge for the night will be $10.
Yo ho ho and a bottle of wassail!,
