I have a couple of gigs I would like to tell you about this month:
1. The Good News Gospel Choir in Concert this Sunday, Nov 13th, 7:00pm at Norfield Church, Weston, Ct. Just to be clear, we originally publicized the concert to be held at Greens Farm if their steeple repairs from hurricane Irene were completed, as it turns out, they cannot host us, so Norfield Church, our home of many years, has graciously welcomed us. The Good News Choir is doing an impressive roster of songs this season and we have a special guest, Dave Eggers and Sue and Linda Broudy to join us on a surprise number. Come expecting to feel the energy of 40 voices singing you back to love and life. Suggested donation is $20. General seating. Norfield Church is located on 64 Norfield road in Weston.
2. The Chris Coogan Quintet live in concert Saturday, November 19th, 8-10pm at the Norfield Grange. 12 Good Hill road in Weston. Come expecting to be touched and changed with the power of hot jazz on a cold night.
Chris Coogan piano/vocals

Doors open at 7:00 for general seating
