Membership Renewal

Hello everyone,

It’s 2015, and we’re planning another fun year of parrot head fellowship, camaraderie, and fun! If you’re on the fence about membership, consider this:

The easiest way to make this decision is to carefully review the following statements…

  • I am definitely growing older, but not up.
  • I feel like shooting six holes in my freezer by November.
  • I’m still trying to reason with the hurricane season.
  • I’ve got a bartender ear and a beachcomber style.
  • I want to live happily ever after every now and then.
  • Will you play for gumbo.
  • I have a cousin in Miami.
  • Vampires, mummies, and the Holy Ghost scare me the most.
  • I go to a Jimmy Buffett concert almost every year.
  • I’ve perfected living and dying in ¾ time.
  • I always consider a vacation in Key West a pilgrimage.
  • My favorite meal is a cheeseburger in paradise.
  • My second favorite meal is oysters and beer (every day of the year).
  • My favorite dessert is fruitcake.
  • My favorite bumper sticker is “Jimmy Buffett for President.”
  • My second favorite bumper sticker is “Don’t blame me, I voted for Jimmy Buffett.”
  • I know where that one particular harbour is, but I ain’t tellin’.
  • My summer concert wardrobe consists mainly of Hawaiian shirts.
  • My favorite car/boat/kitchen accessory is a blender.
  • One of my children is named either Jimmy, Savannah Jane, Sarah Delaney or Cameron Marley.

If you answered any of the above statements with a positive response, there’s a darn good chance you’ll be a perfect fit for the CPHC!

A John Reno House Concert

Doors open at 2:30 PM.
$20 donations requested for John.

RSVP to Andy Forsyth at alf000777@yahoo.com. Please bring a side dish, appetizer or dessert. Soft Drinks and Pizza provided. Bring your own coolers with other beverages if you prefer. We have plenty of chairs.

Directions and address provided when you RSVP.

John Reno, www.johnreno.com/

John is one of the top Trop Rock singer/songwriters in the country. In high demand and always on the go. He does a Jim Croce tribute show but at this house concert he will do mostly his own songs and a couple of Jim Croce songs.

In 2011 John Reno and John Patti were in a Folgers Coffee commercial competition where out of several thousand entrants they were in the final 5. They performed in New York for the final live show competition. We believe they should have won but the judges had to make a tough call.

John has been a finalist for the Trop Rock Music Awards in multiple categories numerous times over the years. His unique vocals and instrumentals set him apart from most performers. A few years ago John was working a regular job and after performing for several years part-time decided to just quit his job and become a full-time musician. And as they say, the rest is history. His video “Big Ol Johnson” has over half a million hits on You Tube and is one of his most requested songs. Be sure to catch John on his first appearance in this area.

A Thom Shepherd House Concert

Thom is a very talented singer/songwriter and an overall great guy. DO NOT MISS THIS opportunity to hang out with and chat with a #1 hit songwriter.

When: Friday, October 25 from 7-10 PM
Where: Crofton, MD

Doors open at 6:30 PM.
$20 donations requested all proceeds go to Thom.
RSVP to Andy Forsyth at alf000777@yahoo.com. Please bring a side dish, appetizer or dessert. Soft Drinks and Pizza provided.
Bring your own coolers with other beverages if you prefer. We have plenty of chairs.

Directions and address provided when you RSVP. We only have room for 40 and that’s pushing it. So don’t wait to sign up. You might miss out.

We will also be filming for the TV Show “Trop Rock Music Showcase” WEYW TV 19 The Florida Keys. And interviewing Thom. We also invite you to stick around to chat with Thom, get pictures and have a great time.

Here is a little bit about Thom and his music, www.thomshepherd.com

He is an Austin, Texas based touring artist. His most recent single “Simplify” was a top ten hit on the Texas Music Chart and the Texas Regional Radio Report.

He is the writer of five #1 nationwide country singles – “Redneck Yacht Club” performed by Craig Morgan. “Riding with Private Malone” by David Ball. “The Night Is Young” by Kyle Park. “My Texas” by Josh Abbott and Pat Green. “Beer Season” by Kevin Fowler.

In total Thom has written over 15 radio singles and has had 100 of his songs recorded by artists including Easton Corbin, Tracy Lawrence, Colt Ford, Bucky Covington, George Jones, Pam Tillis, Lorrie Morgan, John Anderson, Montgomery Gentry, Buddy Jewell and Cledus T. Judd and many others.

Take Me Out To The Ballpark

Chesapeake Parrot Head Club is going to the ballpark for a tour of Oriole Park at Camden Yards! A few weeks ago we told you to hold the date of Saturday, June 8, 2013.

Payment for this tour can be made by cash or check (made payable to the Orioles). Please let us know if you would like to join us so we know if we get a full tour.
