                     STREETCORNER HAPPENINGS - By Jackie  -  May 11, 2016

                                                                   Happy Spring !!!
I think every year we wait, and we wait and we wait some more for spring to arrive.  Then BINGO... spring arrives with a huge blast.  Then our lovely warm spring disappears without a trace for another few weeks.  While we love the first sightings of  Mr. Robin, or the tulips peeking up from under the frosty ground, wouldn't it be terrific if it lasted just a WEE bit longer?  The nice weather I mean of course.  So lets just enjoy it while it's here.

                            Yippee Skippee................the lake is open, we have grass, and some pansies.  

                                              Launch Day -----  The pontoon is in the water.  Hooray !!

STREETCORNER has been relatively busy lately with performances.    East Side, West Side, Downtown, Northern Suburbs......almost  "Going In Circles"  as our velvet voiced baritone Les Cunningham would say.  But, we wouldn't have it any other way. 

It's always fun to return to some of our favorite clubs and enthusiastic friends.  We performed recently at the Clarkston Eagles.  Good friends and Good Music.
Our "Rockin Robin" Bobby with Brenda and Mary.  They're great fans and we love to see them.

                                          Thanks Linda and Rich Lamphere for coming out.  You guys ROCK !!
                                              I think Jerry and Char danced the night away.  Love you guys.

The St. Clair Shores Moose is always one of our favorites.  There are just some places that you really feel comfortable and you also know that they absolutely love us.  Plus, "It's Too Late To Turn Back Now"  as Dan would say.

                                              Wow Dan.....Can you say Bam ?  Yes Les,  it's a Bam Shame !!

The Falcons asked us to play at their Spring Dance and -  Holy Rock & Roll did we smoke.

                                                           Holy Rock and Roll.....That's my hubby and I. 

STREETCORNER had a slight change in lineup for the Falcons Dance.  Our Filmel had another commitment and wasn't able to attend.  Since Joe Toth had previously been with STREETCORNER in the past, it was an obvious choice for him to stand in.  Gotta tell ya................he was awesome to say the least.

                        The night was flawless and we couldn't have been happier.  We were "Havin A Party"

For the 3rd. year in a row, Detroit Cristo Rey High School - Gems of Detroit - has invited STREETCORNER  to perform for their annual event.  The past 2 years it's been held at The Eastern Market Shed # 5.  The event itself is outstanding with most likely 1,500 guests in attendance.  There are food vendors from all over Detroit and live Auctions that have items donated from large and small establishments. 

                                                 We Rocked and We Rolled.  They loved STREETCORNER

                                             STREETCORNER with Bishop Don.   What an awesome man.

                                                                The one and only..........Filmel.

                                                                              Friends are the best !!

                                                                     Dan the Band and Dawn Kuchar

                                                                Our wonderful Les and his lovely Christie.

                                                  Joe Toth our video photographer.  Can't wait to see it Joe.

                               Bobby and Jackie  AKA  yours truly at home getting ready to leave for the evening.

                                                            How Sweet It Is.....the evening was perfect.
                                                 Hey Bobby,  Did I tell you that...."I Only Have Eyes For You"

Hey Friends,  watch our website for new and exciting upcoming events.  Be sure to check everything out on for all of the newest events that YOU might want to attend. 

Have I told you lately how lucky I am to be part of this fantastic group and to have friends like YOU?
                                                                    It's true,.....I am blessed.

Until next time.......As Les would say and it's true.....God Bless You,  I Love You...
