Welcome to my 4th edition of our new blog

                                                 "STREETCORNER HAPPENINGS"

GREETINGS, my name is Jackie and once again I will be your host and blog composer.

Since I've become a part of the STREETCORNER family, I've learned much about integrity, class and talent.  Did you know that most talented people are NOT pretentious or showy people?  They never brag about their abilities, nor are they pompous and highfaluting.  THEY ARE REAL AND DISPLAY only a genuine love for their craft. 

I'm so proud to have become a family member of this talented and genuine assembly of talent.

Last evening -  Saturday,  October 26,  STREETCORNER performed at Duckett's Sports Pub in Pontiac for our monthly Doo Wop and Dinner.  STREETCORNER has a reappearance date to perform the last Sunday of each month. 
The crowd returns each month to hear their favorite MoTown music, dance, eat and party.  I've personally met some wonderful people that I believe will be in my life for many years to come.
Join us for incredible music, great food and once in a lifetime friends.

STREETCORNER rocked the building.  See photos below...................

We even had CELEBRITIES in our midst as well. 
We were privileged to have the  lovely and talented Lisa aka Les Cunningham's daughter aka as LaRae Starr.  LaRae Starr is a well known and very talented singer / songwriter that hails from the Detroit area.  LaRae Starr has appeared on stage with Sheila E,  Alexander O'Neal and the late Tito Puente'.
It was truly an honor and very exciting to have her.

Also in the mix and along with LaRae Starr was Terry Washington an extremely well known and talented Base Player from the Detroit area. 

They added even more class and talent to our already fantastic evening.  It was such a pleasure to meet and talk with both of them.  I do believe that they will stay tuned.

Next Saturday, November 1,  STREETCORNER will be back at Airway Lanes, 4825 Highland Rd., Waterford from 8:30 -12:30. 
If you are looking for excellent CLASSIC MOTOWN music, you've found it with STREETCORNER.
Hey.................I'll be there so come out to see us.  Stop by, I would absolutely love to meet you and chat.
One never knows who will stop by so come on out.
I hope you have a SPOOKY Halloween and I look forward to seeing you soon.

Welcome to the 3rd. edition of our new blog
                                               "STREETCORNER HAPPENINGS"


I'm Jackie and I have to tell you that  being part of this EXTRAORDINARY group is truly an honor. 
Did you know that some of group members have been singing together for over 30 years?  We're won't even talk about how old anyone is because age is merely a number.  What is most impressive about the members of STREETCORNER is that these harmonious artists absolutely love what they do.  You can see it just by watching them,  as each member is blessed with the ability to entertain and interact.

This past weekend, on Saturday October 18 we had the pleasure of performing at The Falcons "Sweetest Day Dance".   The dance took place at the Msgr. Hunt K of C Hall in Dearborn Heights, Michigan.     What a great evening it was !!
As you can see by the pictures below a fun time was had by all. 

                   "OH WHAT A NIGHT"
We also celebrated the birthday of Bob Carroll who turned the ripe old age of ___?  
Oh that's right, age is just a number and hardly relevant to Bobby as he is full of life, energy, and song.
We partied, boogied and enjoyed spending the evening with great friends.
Oh that's right......we also ate brownies. 
Have you ever tried to draw a trumpet on top of frosting while using little squeeze tubes?
Ahhh yes, there's our birthday boy.  Happy Birthday Bobby.
We had the pleasure of having Mike Walli and his lovely lady Kathleen join us at the
 Sweetest Day Dance. 
Mike is a member of Street Heart, a Detroit Doo Wop group.
It was great seeing both of you. Thanks for coming Mike and Kathleen.
This coming Sunday, October 26 STREETCORNER will be at
 Duckett's Sports Pub for another Doo Wop and Dinner. 
The show starts at 5 pm and ends at 9 pm.  What a perfect time for a Sunday evening outing.
Come join us for great music, dancing and some awesome Doo Wop.
