"OH HAPPY DAY", as the song goes............
After a several week absence from continuing our STREETCORNER blog,.........I'M BACK.
STREETCORNER played Duckett's Sports Pub on April 26, for their awesome Doo Wop & Dinner Sunday special. I'm told the evening went well, but I was in California and wasn't able to attend. It's such a treat to watch and listen to this group it was really difficult to miss. My daughter lives in L.A. with her family and it was a perfect time for me to visit. I took one of my granddaughters with me for the visit and needless to say we had a great time. That is, in spite of missing my husband and 5 dogs terribly it was a great trip.
May 8, Friday - STREETCORNER was invited to perform for a very special evening. Detroit Cristo Rey High School had their annual fund raising event. This evening took place at The Eastern Market at Shed #5. Holy Cow, when we were first invited we had no idea what a Shed was. Bobby and I went with the event coordinators for a walk-through to view the building and we were blown away by the size of it. I was thinking shed......but this was a gigantic building. The event coordinators worked with us closely in making this evening extra special. It turned out to be a "JUMP JIVE AND WAIL" kind of evening.
We performed with the One And Only Martha Reeves. She was her usual fantastic self.
To be sure, the entire evening was awesome. With over 800 people in attendance it was an evening to remember. Joe Toth did a video for the group and we're confident it will turn out superb. We are really excited to see his end result. Great things take time. Such good friends he and Sharon are to Bobby and I. We really appreciate the time they took to help us out. You guys are awesome !
There were auctions galore, there was everything imaginable for grabs. They had golf trips, wine baskets, beer tubs, paintings, sporting event tickets and DANCE LESSONS. Yep, you guessed it...........Bobby and I bid on the dance lessons and won. Yippee !! We haven't decided quite when to start them, but since we love to dance together, it's going to be tons of fun. Can't Wait !!
Saturday, May 2 STREETCORNER was at G. Subu's Leather Bottle in Livonia again. This is one of our favorite places. It's close enough for many of our friends to join us for a fun evening.

Every time Sarah comes to see one of our shows people assume that she and I are sisters. We're both asked each time we dance together. We don't think we look anything alike, but apparently there is something !!!!!
So.....all in all......" BETCHA BY GOLLY WOW" .....STREETCORNER has been busy.
Summer is almost here and our gig schedule is filling up. We hope that you continue to follow our group and enjoy keeping up with our BLOG.
