SO! Next month, Larrie and I will be commemorating our six year milestone from that fateful night back in July, 2012. You can read all about that here.
Just to build another layer on our romantic story and gather the little community that were there that first night, as well as draw in all the newcomers of The Fireside Lounge Open Mic phenomenon, we are going to have a theme night on our July hosting. On the last Wednesday, July 25, we are going to have a Favourite Duo night. Dress up as and/or do a duo tribute to your favourites.
This ought to be a fun night.
Some of the duos that have been a part of our relationship and regular set list are, Donny Hathaway and Roberta Flack, James Ingram and Patti Austin, Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell-plus, we have made duets out of songs by Al Green, Smokey Robinson , Outkast and our original songs.
And so, just as a sample of what we do sometimes, here is our take on Prototype, which we learnt so we could sing it as some friends, an Ozzie and an American, could walk down the aisle to it.
It was their request and just one of the ways we can use our music to benefit others’ in their relationships as well.
