Hey, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and here’s an idea for a really cool, really affordable gift!
Send your special someone a Singing Valentine. Every year, all across the country, the Barbershop Harmony Society chapters send out quartets to sing valentines.
The typical program is:
4 Men (The Sweet Adelines do this too, so it could be 4 women) show up at the location of your choice at the time you want.
They sing 2 love songs, and present a rose and a card.
The cost runs in the $30-35 range.
I’ve performed at homes, restaurants, offices, schools, anywhere is OK. The public reaction is fantastic, the reaction of the “target” of the valentine is priceless.
Go to www.singingvalentines.com to find the BHS chapter in your area that delivers valentines.
Having performed these valentines for a number of years, I can guarantee you that a singing valentine is a gift to remember. Your honey will be knocked off her/his feet.
For what it’s worth, my quartet (PayDirt in the links) will be out on Friday the 13th in the Placerville, California area. So if you’re local to us, you can request PayDirt for Friday (but not Saturday).
Do yourself a favor and visit the singing valentines site above. You won’t regret it!
