There’s always much to celebrate at the end of a year....families come together to share meals and laughter, stories are told and music is sung, played and listened to from supermarket aisles to Doctor’s offices. Whatever people’s traditions are for the end of the year, it seems they always involve music. Music brings us together, creates a mood and brings a little spirit to our otherwise busy schedules.
Here at SAW, we spent a little time making music over the holidays as well. Our Holiday Party on December 13 held at the Surge in McLean was a roaring success! We enjoyed a potluck supper together, had a good time talking and networking, heard some corny jokes from our dedicated Emcee Paige Powell, and participated in a holiday-themed open mic! Thanks to everyone for coming out and participating in this fun event!
Also, on December 12, SAW member Stevie Wade Potter hosted a holiday-themed open mic at his “Acoustic Listening Room” event at Deja Brew in Haymarket, VA. Several SAW members performed and were in attendance. If you live west of DC, Steve’s monthly acoustic shows are a wonderful performance opportunity in a very supportive environment. Steve schedules performers in advance. If you are interested in performing at Deja Brew, please email Steve at firstname.lastname@example.org.
