Well, with Covid vaccinations coming ’round and states around us opening up, it’s just a matter of time before we’re back, too. We don’t want to push it, as none of us want to catch it or draw a packed crowd into the tap room too soon… But do stay in touch! Which means we gotta practice!!
Interesting BBC documentary – a half hour of your time to learn a bit about Ewan MaColl and the move to better the quality of performance and presentation of the songs we help to preserve.
Well, with the news of a viable vaccine, we have high hopes of a return to our shows perhaps sometime late in the spring. We’ll let you know as soon as we know.
This has been a tough year for all of us. We’ve lost ones we love, all our gigs shut down, and while ZOOM can help with seeing people, there’s no current replacement for being together and singing our hearts out. Please may this coming year show more light, more happiness, and a return to a greater degree of normalcy. Our love to all of you, and as good a holiday as can be had!
Our heartfelt thoughts for our captain and founder at the loss of his wife Sandy. Terrible thing to happen anytime but especially sad just as we enter into the holidays. Cliff is bearing up, and he has family and he has friends who are gathering around him to help with whatever our man needs.
Well, none of us really expected anything like what we all are experiencing at this time. It is unprecedented in our lifetime. With good precaution in mind, all bars and restaurants are shut down and any gathering of more than 10 people is strongly cautioned against… We in the music industry have lost our livelihood along with those in the service field. But as bleak as it might seem right now, we know that there will be an end to it and we’ll be able to celebrate together when the cloud lifts! Please, please listen to the advice of medical and scientific experts and stay safe & healthy. Come look at our videos if you’d like a fix! Reach out here or on Facebook if you should feel inclined and we’ll get back! And we’re eager to sing with you again!
Due to the rising concerns and growing steps taken to prevent the spread of the Corona Virus, the Griswold Inn has cancelled tomorrow night’s St-Pats dinner and all events for the foreseeable future. So, Monday nights are going dark for the time being. Both the Griswold Inn and we – The Jovial Crew – are saddened that current events have forced our hand. Please, please stay safe and healthy, and with luck and our collective perseverance, we will all come out healthy on the other end and have reason to resume and celebrate! Wash your hands and keep home!
As of today – Friday the 13th (a good luck day for me, historically) – The Griswold Inn plans to move forward with its St-Pats dinner and show on Tuesday, the 17th, 7p to 10:30p. Use your best judgement: should you feel ill in the slightest, you may wish to celebrate from home. But we plan to continue on as long as the event isn’t cancelled. If it is, we’ll post the news here and on Social Media. Otherwise, proceed as normally!
This Sunday – the 15th March – our show at Cafe Nine has been postponed due to the St-Pat’s Parade New Haven being postponed. A new date is being considered: stay tuned.
