ONYX Vocal Band

Onyx News
Early Spring 2010

The new music we talked about in the Fall Newsletter is now firmly in place and we’re moving forward to adding several more songs during the remainder of the year:

  • California Dreamin’
    (Mamas & Papas),
  • Stand By Me
    (Ben E. King),
  • L-O-V-E (Nat King Cole),
  • My Mother’s Eyes
    (George Jessel, Frankie Valli and others)
  • Slow Boat to China (Rosemary Clooney, Benny Goodman, Jimmy Buffet, etc.).

The addition of these wonderful songs will provide ONYX with a solid Repertoire covering everything from traditional ballads & swing to doo–wop to gospel to show tunes, from a simple two- or three-song birthday or anniversary greeting to a full 90-minute stage review.

Speaking of stage…Saturday, April 10th will find us as featured performers as well as chorus members on the Upper Canada Chordsmen’s annual production, this year titled “Sentimental Journey”, at the Newmarket Theatre. Just follow this link for more details and ticket information.

And, speaking of stage, again…put a circle around Saturday, October 2nd. That evening, you can enjoy the collaboration of the Brenda Scott Quartet and ONYX Vocal Band at the Newmarket Seniors’ Meeting Place. With seating for almost 300 (including a VIP section), you and your friends can relax and take in great jazz stylings in addition to ONYX’s eclectic mix. There will be a special link to all the info in our spring and summer newsletters.

When booking ONYX for your next important occasion, be sure to check out our Repertoire on the “Samples” page and let us know if you have any special requests.

As always, you can keep up with what we’re doing by clicking on the “Events” tab.
