FINAL OPEN MIC OF THE SEASON AT THE HALL

An amazing array of talent occupies the 'back row' forming a 'house band' that can follow any entertainer who performs

The open mic season at The Hall came to a rollicking end last night, with over twenty entertainers giving of their time and talent to provide an almost full 'house' with three hours of an amazing variety of entertainment.   These evenings of just pure fun have become a staple of the entertainment scene in Parrsboro throughout the winter months and will return again on September 8th

What a pleasure to have the infectious enthusiasm of Dilly and Ray entertain

Donna and Shirley provided some beautiful harmonies in their duets.
Although this was the final open mic until the fall, Concerts in the Park, at the band stand each Sunday at 7:00 pm, will begin on June 4th.   With the good weather now here, come out and spend an hour with friends enjoying a wide variety of entertainment each Sunday.  See you all there!

ANOTHER GREAT OPEN MIC AT THE HALL

The Parrsboro Citizens' Choir 'backing up' Rob Bentley on his opening number

A large crowd was treated to a great evening of entertainment at The Hall as we held our second to last Open Mic of the season.   The evening started with a surprise visit from the Parrsboro Citizens' Choir which arrived to 'back up' Rob Bentley on his opening number.  Possibly the largest number of entertainers on stage at one time at an open mic even seen in The Hall and when they performed a second number, most of the audience enjoyed singing along.

A genuine pleasure to have Evange join in with her beautiful vocals

However the fun did not stop there as others joined in at various times to provide accompaniment.   Rob's interjection of "way up North" had Andrew just about losing it and the audience loved it!

Helen, Aggie and Connie performed some great, popular trios

Once again The Hall proved that Open Mic nights can be great entertainment, full of laughter and great entertainers.   It was a special pleasure to have Evange and Kathy join in.  Two terrific vocalists and lovely people who do not visit nearly enough.

Alexander proved that Open Mic is not all just singing when he regaled the audience with some amusing 'stories'

However the next Open Mic, on May 19th, will be our final one of the season.   The summer Concerts in the Park will begin again on Sunday evenings in June.   Stay tuned for further details.

ANNUAL PLANT SALE COMING TO THE HALL


It is time to mark your calendar again.    The annual Plant Sale at The Hall is returning for 2017 on Saturday June 3rd with the doors opening at 9:00 am.   

So if/when you are finally able to begin gardening again, and have some perennials to separate, you can always put some aside and donate them to The Hall.   We can even arrange pick up if dropping them off is a nuisance.

ANOTHER NIGHT OF MUSIC AT THE HALL

Connie Ells and Dave Baker played some great duets

A great turnout, a great show.    It was Open Mic night at The Hall and once again the audience was treated to an incredible variety of music, featuring some amazingly talented musicians and performers.    We were even privileged to host several new performers who heard about our evenings, and decided to give us a try.  

Dave Dunlop was one of five entertainers making their first appearance at The Hall

The result was a three hour show, full of tremendous music, a lot of laughter and even a spontaneous audience 'choir' at one point when everyone broke into song!    And sounded fantastic!

Bruce Gibson blew the windows out with his tribute to Chuck Berry

Open Mic is back with a vengeance at The Hall and simply gets better every week.   Proceeds from the Open Mic nights is now being directed toward a major electrical upgrade for the annex/kitchen.   Not as glamorous a project as some but the support received from these nights permit the Association to continue the rejuvenation of The Hall as a centre of culture and community.
Once again Donna Benjamin put her heart and soul into her music

Many, many thanks to the musicians, audience members and the volunteers who make these nights of magic happen.
