usually, Wednesday evenings at The Guide Dog, Bevois Valley SO14 6SF
Occasionally elsewhere in Southampton
12 Dec 2018
Despite our programme being in deficit to the tune of one guest night [see what I did, there?], I couldn't fix a replacement in time, so FOCSLE Music will run singaround-style tonight. Your seasonal musical / spoken-word offerings welcome (unless you want to keep them a surprise to spring on folks at our Xmas Party next week). Non-seasonal pieces equally acceptable: a mixed menu is a good thing.
Usual singaround format: songs, tunes, spoken word pieces delivered in turn by each perfomer present, until the break, when we run our raffle. This has a wine or beer prize, and [usually] confectionery, or another alternative (CDs/books, etc.), depending on attendance. Then we do the music, etc. bit all over again — with different songs & stuff [obviously] :-) What you get, musically, hangs entirely on who turns up, how good they are, and what they choose to deliver (those with wide repertoires may accept a 'request', or two).
Note that December's fourth Wednesday is Boxing Day, so FOCSLE Music's second meeting of the month will be a week earlier, AND IS MOVED FORWARD TO MONDAY (17th), and AWAY TO THE WATERLOO ARMS, Freemantle, perhaps enabling some of our regular Weds. absentees to join us for our Xmas Party. More details in the cell below.
