There's nothing quite like spending an evening singing Irish songs with friends, and that's what's being offered by members of the Westfield/Mayville Rotary Club.
Mark your calendar for "A Night at the Brix with Doc and Bill" from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 15, at 21 Brix Winery on Route 20 in Portland to sing your best with lots of others.
Many are familiar with Doc Hamels and Bill Drellow who have tuned their guitars to perform in the tri-state area for the past four years and have a growing fan base across five counties. Most recently they were headliners for St. Patrick Day at the 1891 Fredonia Opera House.
Two Westfield/Mayville Rotarians, Doc Hamels, left; and Dave Travis, treasurer/planner, put their heads together to organize a fun evening for the public. “A Night at the Brix with Doc and Bill” features the duo singing Irish songs with friends from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 15, at 21 Brix Winery on Route 20 in Portland.
Along with Doc and Bill featuring Irish and Folk music, food and soft drinks, there also will be a door prize and a 50/50 raffle. Proceeds from both will benefit the Rotarians' local community projects. In addition, 21 Brix will have a cash bar to offer its many kinds of wine.
Pre-sale tickets, which are $20 per person, are available from any W/M Rotarian or by calling Rotarian Dave Travis at 792-9791. They also will be available at the door.
"Bill and I are looking forward to playing great Irish pub songs and hits from the folk era, such as the Kingston Trio," Doc Hamels, also a Rotarian, noted. "We hope a lot of folks can come out to the terrific 21 Brix venue!"
All Rotarians, whose motto is "Service Above Self," will greet you upon arrival and, at your evening's end, you'll leave clapping, tapping and singing!
