I had this picture earlier, but I didn't know how to put it on the blog until my son (natch) taught me how. This is some of what I do during the Christmas season. The Temecula Vintage Singers contracts for quartets to go to parties, events and the like and sing Christmas carols. That's me on the right, singing tenor with this group, at a local country club.
Christmas seems to be the only time of the year a singer of my abilities and connectedness -- good but not spectacular and not especially, respectively -- can get paid for singing. We split the fees between the singers who participate and the chorus itself. I earned about enough to take my wife out for a nice dinner this year -- but had a lot of fun doing it.
Although this will say it was posted by Steve, this is Alan babbling.
