Tempos update

I spoke to Mike Shell and he said that he and Terry are in the process of getting things together to "show and tell' at the meeting next week.  He his very much looking forward to it. Larry Cook is now only a possibility, however.  Mike is hoping Larry can make it, but can't guarantee it.  It should be a great meeting.

Special guests lined up for the May meeting

As previously announced, we will have members of the Tempos come and talk to us about the band and give us all the behind-the-scenes tid-bits and stories that are always entertaining. We even have some more good news. We had thought and announced that two members, Mike Shell and Terry Barnett, were coming, but also coming is a third member, Larry Cook, which are all of the surviving members.  The Tempos released one album, "Speaking of The Tempos."  That album has become a highly sought after and hard-to-find gem for collectors.  This should be a very informative and entertaining meeting.

We gather at 2 pm for refreshments and music conversation. The business meeting/program is at 3 p.m. Visitors are welcome to drop by and meet us! We’re at the Homewood Library, located at 1721 Oxmoor Road, near Homewood Park. We meet in Room 110 in the lower level.

Lou Christie - Drive In Dreams

Here is a great new (2015) song from Lou Christie, "Drive In Dreams."  This was not written by Lou like most of his early hits were, but by a new friend, Gregory Scharpf of the band, Sweet Breeze.  The song was written with Christie in mind and is very nostalgic.  At 72, Lou sounds as good, if not better, than ever.  Still has that great falsetto voice.
