OTHER STEEL MARGARITA NEWS:
NEW INSTRUMENT: recently purchased a very large BORE steelpan which is 27 inches in diameter. This Bore Pan has tiny holes drilled all around each note. My usual C Tenor P is 23 inches round and is not a Bore pan. This pan has larger notes, is much louder, and has a beautiful authentic sound. It is very special and I am so happy to have a new member to add to my collection of instruments.
SINGING LESSONS: Did you know Steel Margarita is exercising her lungs? No, I'm not running any marathons! I previously sang in chorus during high school. Then I began singing in my car and in the shower! About a year ago, my son Will (my awesomely talented percussionist, keyboard player, and track composer) taught me some chords on the uke. I immediately fell in love, and I've been playing ever since! Since singing adapts much better with the Uke, rather than the steelpan, I started to write a song about what I know best: GOING TO THE BEACH! As my Florida friends already know, my husband and I ride our bikes to the beach on the East coast, so it's only apropros that my first song is about that same activity--riding my bike to the shore, and having fun! But what's a girl to do if the sky is cloudy? Well, you can find out if you listen to my song!
"MARSHMALLOW CLOUDS" is now copyrighted! I have completed my first original song on Ukelele and I'm so happy to sing and play this song on my UKE. When is the debut? Actually, Nov. 10 and Nov. 11......so I hope that you can make one of these events!
CONTINUING EDUCATION DIY JEWELRY CLASSES - I completed some FUN DIY workshops at Bethpage, Bellmore-Merrick, Massapequa and East Meadow schools in Septemer/October 2017. For the Spring Session, I will be adding the Farmingdale School District. These workshops are each 2 hours in length for one night. Priority is given to residents and registration is through each school district's continuing education department. Please check my Steel Margarita website for upcoming dates.
SIP & CREATE JEWELRY NIGHT - Some of you already know I love to make jewelry! If you want to host a really fun and CREATIVE Girls Night Out, please let me know. Hostess is always FREE, and the ladies pay $25 per person to make a project, which can be earrings and bracelet or necklace and earrings, which varies depending upon the complexity of the project you choose. For December, we will be making snowflake earrings, necklace and/or bracelet with white beads or blue beads! Please contact me for more details. Photos on the facebook page, Sip & Create Summertime Jewelry. If you could LIKE this new page, I would sincerely appreciate that! Great and unique idea for a FUNDRAISER for your organization. I have conducted this workshop for 50 people with great success! Please contact me for more info.
SAVE the DATE! Sunday Dec. 3 - I know it's too early to think about the holidays, heck it's not even Thanksgiving yet, but I want you to save this date. I will be playing my holiday songs for this event at THE CAMPAGNE HOUSE, Broadway, Bethpage. This is one of my favorite restaurants! I will be playing on the famous Campagne House "Patio". My favorite song to play is "Frosty the Snowman." What's your favorite holiday song that I play from my album, which is on Itunes, Spotify, and Pandora? You can listen here on Spotify for FREE. This is a FREE app that you can download to your computer or phone.
CD's are available digitally on the world-wide web, or a hard copy for purchase $10 each, 2 for $15 from me. You can give them as a holiday gift or send as a holiday card to your friends. Please send me an email for wholesale pricing on orders of 6 or more.
I hope to see you at one of the above events! As always, I sincerely appreciate all of your referrals! Don't forget, I play with percussion and also a guitar player/singer. So far, I have 3 weddings booked for 2018, in LBI, and Long Island, so I am so grateful and excited for these events! I love to play for all kinds of events: Weddings, Birthdays, Kids Parties, Corporate Events, Weddings, Assisted Living Facilities, Schools, Camps, Luaus and Restaurants.
Hope you and your families have a fun-filled, happy and safe fall season! Happy Halloween & Happy Thanksgiving!
Peace,🕊 Love, 💕😎& Happiness to You and Yours,
Steel Margarita, a/k/a, Mamma Steel
Hope to see you soon! or.... See you at the beach!
It's always Summertime with Steel!
