November Meeting

Please join us at our next meeting on November 16h. We gather at 2 p.m. for refreshments and music conversation. The business meeting is at 3 p.m. Visitors are always welcome!

This month’s meeting will be all about television theme music.  Mike had an article in last month’s newsletter about his passion for this type of music collecting.   He  now has over 1,000 TV theme songs and is still going.  Mike will talk about the history and stories behind some of your favorite themes.  It is just unbelievable how many television shows there have been. Themes cover all genres and many have been hit songs and others should have been.  Be thinking about some themes you would like to hear and chances are you’ll hear it Sunday.

We meet at the Homewood Library, located at 1721 Oxmoor Road, near Homewood Park. We're  in Room 110 in the lower level.

October Meeting

At the October meeting we will be discussing the incredible music of Bond, James Bond.  Since the movie series of the world's best known spy started in 1962, one of the best loved aspects of each movie is its fantastic theme song and musical score.  Some of music's best known artists have performed theme songs, such as Paul McCartney and Wings, Tina Turner, Sheryl Crow, Gladys Knight and Madonna,to name but a very few, have all put their particular twist on Bond theme songs which all have that obvious Bond sound.  It all started with probably the most recognized tune in all of movie lore, "The James Bond Theme,"  originally composed by Monty Norman, but arranged beautifully by John Barry.

We will also be having a trivia contest of this topic and we should all learn a little more about the music of James Bond.
