Second Sunday Sing-Alongs! @ 2:00pm. September 9, October 14, and so on.

Second Sunday Sing-Alongs! Every 2nd Sunday @ 2:00pm. August 12, Sept. 9, and so on.  PWYC (pay what you feel you can.). Starting in May The Pearl Company is opening its doors to a Community Sing-Second-Sunday-Sing_05_18Along. Every second Sunday of every month at 2 o’clock we invite the Hamilton community to come and raise your voices. We will be singing Great Old Tunes from the 60s, 70s and onward. Inspired by the “Rise Up” songbook, another legacy of Pete Seeger. Let’s join our voices and remember the way we used to sing and dream and set our voices free.  So bring something to strum or hum or shake.  SING YOU SOON!
Hosted by Howard Jerome – who really was singing folk songs in Greenwich Village in the sixties – and who tells great stories!

Marvelous Membership Meet & Eat: August 18

Marvelous Membership Meet & Eat: August 18. Starting at 7:00pm. Members: Free. Non-Members $100! Come let us say thank you or come join this exclusive band! Come enjoy an evening of PearlCoDoorfood, drink, music, & fellow humans with similar interests!  Isn’t that true. The people who hang out at The Pearl are discerning, intelligent and interested in the arts. Right? We are far from the only venue offering to appease those tastes but if you know us, you know our offerings rarely miss!
Entertainment will of course involve Gary and some surprise guests. One for-sure guest will be Howard Jerome. I’ve written about Howard (who has been deeply soaked in almost all facets of the arts) a number of times. Here’s what I have been saying: He is currently the voices of several cartoon characters; he’s the instigator of the Canadian High School Improv Championships; he’s a former folksinger in Greenwich Village; a (former) pro wrestler, a Toronto mayoral candidate, and a general all-round character with way too many other vocations to fit here. He will do a story-telling session that I guarantee you’ll love. More to come!
