                                    STREETCORNER HAPPENINGS, By Jackie - 2/26/15

Hello, and thank you for reading and following our little blog about this talented group.

This week rather than talk about one event, I've opted to include two events that we played this past weekend.  Both nights we rocked and had a ball. 

Saturday, February 21 we played for the Woodhaven Moose Lodge -  Dinner Dance.   This dance was a benefit for various causes that they support.  We hope they did well and were able to meet their quota for each worthy cause.  There were about 250 attendees for the dance, so it would be my guess that they did very well.  We thank them for giving STREETCORNER an opportunity to show our stuff to their members.  I personally met many of the membership and spent quite a bit of time with them.   I  received a very warm and friendly feel from each of them.  Not only did they love the music and purchase our music CD's, but they included me in their dancing.  Wow, that always makes me smile.  When my Bobby is performing,.................I am always on the lookout for a female dance partner.  Or two - Or three.

I have to say that they were wonderful.  Yet, I've yet to experience an OFF night with them.
I believe that the whole experience of being with STREETCORNER has taught me that if you
 LOVE WHAT YOU will do well.  Each member of STREETCORNER loves performing and loves people.  That is part of why they come across so talented and approachable.

Sunday, February 22 we played at Duckett's Sports Pub - Doo Wop & Dinner evening.  This is our regular monthly show with Duckett's.  Duckett's is located in Pontiac and that just happens to be where our Bobby grew up.  Hence, the tremendous amount of friends that his name generates from this particular area.  It's so much fun watching friends interact after NOT seeing each other for.......
.......Wow..........many ....many years.  Yet, the stories and tales of past experiences are fun to listen to.  Well...........sometimes it makes me wonder if I should even be listening.  But, since Bobby and I have no secrets, I put these into a special category in my mind of   "Oh Well......history is just that...
HISTORY".............  Duckett's is and always will be a special place for us because we have all made new and awesome friends there.  I always look forward to going because I just know there will be some friends that I only see at Duckett's.  This makes them even more special.

Fortunately, we have friends that follow STREETCORNER to the ends of the earth.  Well, at least to the ends of reasonable driving distances.  Sometimes they surprise us with their presence when we're absolutely NOT expecting them.  That's what makes them so wonderful. 

We love our fan friends and we are grateful beyond words for their love and support.
Actually, one of our fan friends turned out to be our travel agent to Hawaii for our Hawaiian Wedding Cruise.  Thank you Mary for all of your hard work.  The wedding and cruise went smoothly and we couldn't be happier with how everything that I worried about just seemed to fall into place.  It was your hard work and experience that made our Hawaiian Wedding perfect.  Even to the bottle of wine that you,  Brenda,  Nicki and Chester had delivered to our stateroom prior to our boarding.  It helped calm nervous nerves while we dressed for our wedding.  Thank you so much guys.

Wow, what an awesome group of people !!!

                                                                       My Bobby & I. 

Thank you for reading our blog.  Thank you for following our so very talented group.  While i'm not part of the singing aspect of the group my contribution comes in many forms.  I love everything that I do from selling the CD's at all of the events, to handling the money, to working as the Public Relations Manager and setting up events with numerous private organizers or large community events.  It is and has been my pleasure to be a part of this talented  STREETCORNER family.

Until next week.......Have a great rest of your week.

Love & Friendship,
Jackie Carroll
