Aca-Tastic Birthday

VenusdMinorPerforms

Our favoriate Venusians Robin (front and center) and Dolores (fuschia, third from right) recently celebrated birthdays. This photo is not recent, as you can tell from the holiday greenery, but who wants a current photo for their birthday? To celebrate, Venus sang for R&D’s awesome house party. We love house parties.  Are you having one this spring or summer? Give us a shout…we’ll be there before you can say “canapé.” You can email us at venusdminor (at) gmail (dot) com. Or if this is an aca-emergency, call 301-651-3707.

Space, the Final Frontier

Apparently Lady Gaga plans to sing in outer space.She’ll be transported on Virgin Galactic (insert joke here, but this is a family-friendly blog…). Apparently, she told US Weekly that she has to do a special month of vocal training “because of the atmosphere.”

We know just what she means. Sometimes the atmosphere at the parties where we sing can get downright difficult. All that laughing and eating and drinking. So we are taking a page from Lady Gaga and doing a month of preparations for our next gig. It’s not in outer space, but it is outside the Beltway, which is almost the same thing in terms of travel time. We’ll be singing at the Blueberry Hill annual Holiday Party Extravaganza in mid-December.

If you’d like Venus to sing on your space ship or party, please ping us at venusdminor@gmail.com.

Venus Sings July 27 in Support of #Mimolette

As many of our fans know, we are as much lovers of cheese as we are of a cappella. So when Venus heard that the FDA was blocking immimolette vieuxports of the beautiful French cheese Mimolette (see story in Washington Post) , we knew we had to do something!   So…we are heading back to one of our favorite outdoor summer concert venues–Lubber Run Ampitheater in Arlington–to sing our hearts out for cheese fans everywhere.  We’ll be selling our new CD Digital Redemption, and using the proceeds to purchase the last remaining rounds of mimolette we can find for rehearsal snacking. Join us at this fabulous concert, where we’ll be appearing with our friends The Tone Rangers . The concert begins at 8PM. Location: N. Columbus Street and 2nd Street N., two blocks north of Route 50. For the full summer schedule at Lubber.
