Morning everybody. Isn’t it pretty out today? Too bad I hear we are supposed to get soaked later today. Go get all those errands and your outdoor fitness accomplished now, this afternoon is gonna be a wet one.
So yesterday we had a printing rep stop by and drop off a big bag of Malley’s Chocolate…and while we tried our best to resist the dark chocolate covered pretzels (FAVE!) were calling out name…munch munch.
When we opened the box we found the cutest little flyer for the new Malley’s Marching Band. Even though I was never in a marching band and could only play the piano…I was intrigued.
The band website says “Join the Sweetest Marching Band In The Land. Attention all former marching band musicians. If you love to play and miss your marching band days, fill out the form below to join our all volunteer band! All skill levels and ages welcome. You must own your own instrument, we’ll supply a band shirt. Sign up if you’re looking for a non serious fun time band. Limited to the first 300 sign ups.”
So all you old band lovers, get out there and show us what you got. I look forward to seeing you at any one of the summer parades! It will be so SWEET! Have a great Tuesday.
Good morning CLE & happy TAX Day! Hope everyone got by without owing too much to “the man” this year. Perhaps you’ve even received a refund…time to shop! :)
Did you know that this week kicks off the JazzFest? Last year I had the pleasure of attending the Tri-C JazzFest for the very first time. I saw the very talented, stunning and engaging artist Diana Krall at one of the many concerts during the week of live music presented by the JazzFest.
Now is your turn to win a pair of tickets and experience for yourself just how great this annual event really is.
Tri-C JazzFest Cleveland features jazz performances, classes, lectures, and many other concert and community outreach activities. Local and national artists teach, compose, arrange, and perform. Concerts take place at PlayhouseSquare, the Metropolitan Campus of Cuyahoga Community College, and the new MOCA Cleveland. This year, the show is running from April 19 thru May 4.
In addition to the show, there is an Opening Night Party on April 19 to kick off the festival! The party will be held at Playhouse Square in the State Theatre Lobby from 5-7pm and is sponsored by Great Lakes Brewing Company. The event is free and open to the public, and will feature live music by Detroit’s Nadir & Distorted Soul. After the party, the fest will kick off with performances by Aaron Neville and Dr. John at 8pm!

I’ve seen Pink Martini a few times, and every time it is a delight of incredible talent and inspiring music making. I welcome all of you to grab a ticket or two for this wonderful holiday experience. Hope to see you there.
The Modern Electric is a cinematic pop band from Cleveland, Oh that combine soul, melody and emotion to soundtrack those moments in life that are just like the movies. Christmas Story anyone?
The track is a celebratory anthem that captures the joys, struggles and triumphs of a Christmas on the Northwest. My favorite line is “Shopping at a thrift store in December, this’ll be a Christmas to remember.” I feel like it speaks to me. HA!
