While I am being totally OT today, here's the latest pic of my singing group!

While I am being totally OT today, here's the latest pic of my a cappella gospel singing group, the XY Zingers!

This is the group I started 3 years ago. We have been asked to perform in a real theater (where people PAY to see us) this summer.

Ages - 64 - 79.

Wow, what are the chances of you all wearing the same shirt and pants on the same day?

What kind of stuff do you sing and do you sing any barbershop harmony?

Hey. I am not totally off-topic. Three of the singers in the picture are also bicyclists, and I ride with them a lot as the weather gets better.

Looks like your group has increased in number. Well done on the invitation from the theater.

Here's what I hope is a link to our latest photo.

I'm the dashingly handsome guy in the blue blazer............... fourth from left, second row.

We are now up to 10, and I don't think we want to get any bigger.

There is a whole different approach to logistics and management as a group gets larger, and I really don't want to go there.

Right now, we make group decisions, and agree by consensus. But, too many divergent personalities make this more difficult.

Also, right now we can all meet in my basement. Much larger, and we get the additional problem of where to meet.

Tomorrow, we have a friend of all of us - a great singer, musician and guy, coming over to give us some pointers. He has worked with us before, and has good ideas.

Your group looks great, and, yes, you ARE the handsome one!
