ARLINGTONES GUEST NIGHT,  MAY 2015
Every night is guest night with the Arlingtones. While we usually don't have pizza, we do have singing, camaraderie, and an over all good time.  Can you sing? Are you interested?  If you can sing "Happy Birthday" on key, please come and join us. Locations and maps are on the first page.

Barbershop choruses are made up of (ready for this?) barbershop quartets.  Here one sings about  'The Colorectal Surgeon' an old classic.  Well, not really.

Another quartet entertains the group with a more traditional song, "It's Only a PaperMoon."  Remeber that one?

Music alone, with sudden charms,
Can bind the wand'ring sense and calm the troubled mind.
