Join Us – Aug 1st @ OC Library – 7PM

Good morning!

Sending a friendly reminder for you to join us this Friday, August 1, as we rock the OC Library with “Songs for a Summer Night.” We always love performing there, great acoustics, comfy seats (for you) and lovely people.

Last night at rehearsal, we put the finishing touches on a bunch of new songs. Come on out and bring your friends! The merriment starts at 7PM in Room 110 (the lecture hall).

We’ll be accepting non-perishable food and personal care items once again for our pals at the OC Food Cupboard. Share whatever you can. They appreciate it and so do we!

Peace, love and music,

PGO

Save the (new) Date – Aug 1

Hello friends!

We have a new date for our first Summer concert at the beautiful Ocean City Free Public Library. We’ll be singing “Songs for a Summer Night” – lots of new tunes and favorites from yesteryear, too. Once again, we’ll be collecting for the OC Food Cupboard. They are always in need of peanut butter, jelly, canned meats and fish, microwavable meals and toiletries. They (and we) appreciate your kindness and generosity.

Can’t wait to see you there!

Finding Inspiration at Bay Day 2014

Hello out there in PGO land…

Many of you know that we had the pleasure of playing for Bay Day in Port Norris, NJ last weekend. We met lots of lovely folks and had a great time playing music. We shared the stage with some fine musicians, which always brings us joy. We captured this clip of one of them, Bill Horseman, from the Chowder II band. He told us that he’ll be 84 next month and has been singing for “almost that long.” His voice was strong and clear with great pitch and tone, something that is hard to achieve even when you’re not 84. But he sang the whole set, never missing a beat, and worked up this great yodeling session, to boot. He was a real inspiration. We asked him how he managed to keep his voice so stong and he told us, “I sing every day.” A good lesson for us all.

Go on out there and sing something!

April 11- Concert and May 3 – ECO Fair

Howdy, pardners -

Take a stroll with us as we “walk on down a country road” April 11, 2014 at 7 pm at the Ocean City Free Public Library. We’ll be offering up some tunes with a country flair and adding some banjo and pedal steel to the mix. Rehearsals have been a blast and we think you’ll love the result, so c’mon out, sit a spell, and sing along.

Our next bit of good news – we’ll be back again at Wheaton Arts ECO Fair on May 3, 2014. We’ll entertain from Noon until 4pm, but the ECO Fair runs from 10 AM to 5 PM.

This free, community event is produced in partnership with the Cumberland County Improvement Authority. In addition to environmentally-minded community organizations and vendors, this year’s show will showcase New Jersey artists and craftsmen in celebration of New Jersey’s 350th anniversary. Enjoy eco crafts for children, special demonstrations, nursery stock, herbs, flowers, food, refreshments, and of course, PGO!

Come on out and shake something…

Hello out there in PGO land -

You are all invited to come on out to a swingin’ Mardi Gras party. You can dance, sing along, play some games, win prizes, shake your beads…and most of all, have a great time with some really fun folks. The party is open to the public, so bring all your friends. There will be some light refreshments, too.

We love making music at this event every year. You’ll hear lots of old favorites and some fun NOLA tunes to put you in the mood to “Let The Good Times Roll.”
