Quartet entertainment

I thought we were going to an Irish Christmas music show at the Wortham Center yesterday, called A Christmas in Limerick, but it turned out to be about the rhyming kind of limericks (not the city in Ireland). Whoops.

Despite my initial confusion, it was a wonderful show that introduced us to the large men’s ensemble, the Houston Tidelanders.

They sing beautifully as a group and then break up into different barbershop quartets – dig those harmonies. I highly recommend you give them a listen sometime – they practice every Monday night (7-10pm) in a Bellaire Presbyterian church (5001 Bellaire Blvd.) and love to have visitors watch/hear them rehearse.

    Speaking of shows… has anyone seen “A Tuna Christmas” in Galveston yet? I have heard that it’s a riot.

    I actually have seen it quite a few times – although never at The Grand. It is absolutely hilarious – almost as funny as the first Tuna show, Greater Tuna. You should go.

    Katya: Duly noted! Thanks for the recommendations.

    Now… where did I put that electric blanket…… Freaking cold tonight!
