Well we sure had fun singing to a packed crowd at our favorite outdoor ampitheater in Virginia. We appreciate the invite from our friends The Tone Rangers. Next up, Venus sings the Star Spangled Banner on Monday, July 20th to open a college league Big Train baseball game at Cabin John Park in North Bethesda. Join us for another fun evening under the stars!

Hallelujah! (And thank you!)
Well THAT was fun! Thanks to all our fans–and fans of The Tone Rangers and The Chromatics–for coming out on a chilly evening to hear us sing at Jammin’ Java. Let us know if you have a birthday party, retirement party, divorce party, or any other happening which requires a dash of a cappella!
It was great to make ABC TV’s Good Morning America host laugh (in a good way) during our set this past Saturday for the 21st Annual Sing Out for Shelter Concert. Shipman was the MC for the event for an audience of 250, where Venus rocked the house…well, the church…with our melifluous tones and slightly off-beat humor to benefit three local organizations that serve the more than 30,000 individuals who experience homelessness each year in the nation’s capital. Organized by the Augmented Eight, a men’s a cappella group which has performed for Washington audiences for over 50 years, the SOS concerts have raised approximately $180,000 over the past twenty years. Venus and the Aug 8 were also joined by The George Washington University Troubadors and Eat at Joe’s from the Georgetown Day School, who reminded us 1) that we have been singing since before they were born and 2) that the future of a cappella is bright!
Venus is thrilled to be asked back to sing at the annual Sing Out for Shelter concert this year. Join us for great music in support of a great cause (several local organizations that support the homeless) at 8:00 PM at the Metropolitan Memorial United Methodist Church (MMUMC) 3401 Nebraska Avenue in Washington DC.
What’s better than the gift of song? OUR songs, that’s what. Yes, we are shamelessly promoting our new CD, Digital Redemption. So if you are old-fashioned, consider purchasing a physical CD. Or you can download the whole shebang or selected mp3’s from Amazon or iTunes. Hey, did you know that you can also Hire Venus to Sing for Your Favorite Holiday Event? Yup. We’re probably the only Washington DC area group who can say we’ve sung for Janet Reno AND Condoleeza Rice. These days, who can find such bi-partisanship? Again, shameless self-promotion. At our age, the gloves have come off. Well, figuratively anyway.
