comedy shows at the Riverboat

Kudos to Penny Flanagan at the Riverboat for daring to be different. I just saw a great comedy show there last night. This is one of a series of shows she has had there and they keep getting better. Another one is coming in July put on by Kaleidoscope Comedy who has put on three terrific ones. I'll be there!!! Price is inexpensive, food is good and the comedians are as good as Comedy Central.

Katrina's Reply: I'll be at the next one, too! Looking forward to it.

The Legendary TAMS Are Coming To Colonial Beach

All you have to know is that these beach music legends are Jimmy Buffett's favorite band!

You want to know more, alright here we go:

THE TAMS have been entertaining and thrilling audiences for over 40 years! Known for such hits as "Be Young, Be Foolish, Be Happy", "What Kind of Fool", "I've Been Hurt" and "Untie Me", The Tams have had 2 Gold Records, and 1 Platinum Single. "What Kind of Fool" hit #9 on the Billboard charts, and #6 on the R&B charts. "Hey Girl Don't Bother Me" hit #1 in the UK in 1971. While "Be Young, Be Foolish" only hit #26 on the Top 40, the single sold over 1,000,000 copies, sending it to Platinum status. In 1986, "Ain't Nothin Like Shaggin' " hit #6 in UK Billboard charts, before being banned due to the UK's definition of "shag". Though their style of music has historically been referred to as Beach Music, it can be also classified as a mixture of Smooth Soul, and R&B. Their show is fun, fresh and exciting and appeals to audiences of all ages and musical tastes.

The Tams toured with Jimmy during his 1999 "Beach House on the Moon Tour" and recorded "Flesh and Bone" with him.

Like many other musicians, Jimmy Buffett grew up listening to and being inspired by The Original Tams. The Tams have also performed with many other well known entertainers, including Gladys Knight, Jackie Wilson, Jerry Butler, and The Drifters.

Well known in The Carolinas for their signature "Beach Music" sound, The Tams travel all over the country, frequenting the Southeast, and up & down the East Coast. They have also performed in the Midwest and United Kingdom. The "Mighty" Tams have been elected into the Beach Music Hall of Fame, the Georgia Hall of Fame and the Atlanta Music Hall of Fame. They have also been named "Beach Band of the Decade".

120 Years!

by C. Bruch

There are not many communities that can boast they are 120-years old...as a visitor to the town I would not know that. I suggest "Established 1892" be added to all of the Welcome Signs as well as the the Towns webpage. 120-years adds credibility to the Town.

Katrina's Reply: That's a great idea! Perhaps a big banner across Colonial Avenue as well, marking the anniversary of the town's founding.

Cars beeping Saturday night?


(Colonial beach, va)

What the heck was up with the long line of cars driving down 1st street towards the high school honking their horns around 1130 tonight (Saturday the 23 of feb)?? There was a police siren and then a long line of cars that all kept beeping their horns and I believe they all turned into the high school. I live right behind the school on 2nd and was sleeping until this noise startled me awake. What on earth was going on? I even noticed my neighbors looking out their windows to see what the ruckus was about.

Katrina's Reply: Sounds like our Drifters won another championship game! Congratulations!

Wax Works, Art for a Cause

by Carolyn Goodridge
(Colonial Beach, VA, USA)



A Calm Path

Carolyn Goodridge: Wax Works
August 8 through September 7, 2014

Colonial Beach, VA—Jarrett Thor Fine Arts at 100 Taylor Street #101 opens Carolyn Goodridge: Wax Works on Friday, August 8, 2014, with a public reception from 6:00–9:00 pm. This exhibition of eighteen encaustic (pigmented beeswax) paintings will remain on view through September 7, 2014.

What makes this art exhibit most unique and meaningful is that not only are the paintings made of beeswax, but the artist will donate all of her proceeds to a charity called Siblings Together USA. This non-profit organization helps children in and out of foster care maintain lifelong connections. Working in Virginia, District of Columbia and Maryland, they provide fun activities for positive youth development and interaction between children while developing their creativity. To find out more visit www.siblingstogetherusa.org.

Goodridge is the newly appointed Chief Creative Officer at Siblings Together USA and gladly donates much of her time and resources to growing the organization. She firmly believes that artists are not only natural designers of physical art objects but also quite capable of using their talents to design working systems and effective programs.

Wax Works will be the first art exhibition dedicated to raising money for Siblings Together USA. “Crystal Lotus Lake of Devotion” is a painting inspired by the artist’s study and practice of Zen and highlights her understanding of the Buddhist’s notion of “Big Love”. To turn your selfish love to a big love is wisdom. The lotus flower is the symbol of wisdom, mental and spiritual purity in Zen Buddhism.

The paintings in Wax Works have been created with three themes in mind, Zen, cosmology and theoretical physics. In all cases the paintings are created spontaneously using circles and parts of circles, representing heavenly spheres. According to Dr. Michio Kaku, an American theoretical physicist, our world is made up of vibrating strings. He says that the Mind of God is music resonating in eleven dimensions throughout hyperspace! Painting titles in the show such as “Heavenly Chorus” reflect this idea.

Born in 1960 in Trinidad & Tobago, West Indies, Carolyn Goodridge received her Master of Fine Arts from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Her work has been exhibited in New York, Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, and Washington, DC, shown in museums including the Guggenheim and widely collected by private and corporate collectors. To see more of her work visit www.abstractpaintings.com

Holiday events Volunteer Opportunity

I am new to Colonial Beach and have no family in the area and would like to make friends with others who are community oriented. Being the season of giving, I would like to volunteer and serve the community during the holiday season. Where can I go or who can I contact to find out about volunteer opportunities within Colonial Beach or surrounding Westmoreland County.

Katrina's Reply: Welcome to the beach! A good place to start is probably with the local churches, and there are many of them in Colonial Beach. Thanks for posting and offering your valuable time.
