Dec. 12, 2008 @ Howey's on 71

Ah, Christmas time in Northern Illinois.

Snow, cold, people bustling around getting ready...and some of us taking a little breather to come in from the cold, enjoy a beverage and the great company of friends at Howey's on 71!
Our ol' friend Les was on hand to spread some holiday cheer. But first, as always, he dedicated a song from his favorite band, the Beatles, to his favorite waitress, Molly..."Obla-Di Obla-Da".
On his subsequent visits to the stage, he referred to himself as "Subordinate Claus, Santa's Little Brother" and graced us with "Wonderful Christmas Time", "Jingle Bell Rock", Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer", and "Time of the Season". He even danced a bit of a jig when "Linus and Lucy" got played between singers!

Stephanie kept a country theme with "Fancy", "Black Horse & A Cherry Tree", and "Goodbye Earl". Nice job on each.

Marie took us back with Gloria Gaynor's huge hit, "I Will Survive".

Gina, Christina and friends had quite the party going! They came up for "Landslide", "Killer Queen", "Before He Cheats", "Beautiful Life", "Wide Open Spaces", and "Unfaithful". Too much fun!

Not to be outdone, Thorpo, Jon, and the guys came up for "The Sweater Song" and "Free Fallin".

'Hot Carl' and 'Taco Ice' busted loose with 'Baby Got Back" and "Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy".

George and Erica stopped in for a few songs. George sang "Hurts So Good" and "Overnight Male", Erica sang "Rehab" and "Last Dance". Nicely done.

Alex and friends wrapped up the list with "Tribute" and "No Rain".

There were quite a few more song slips presented late in the evening. Unfortunately, we were not able to get to all of them due to time constraints. We need to stop at 1:30 so my advice to all of you...come in a bit earlier and you'll get to sing.

As always...Keep Smilin'
