Known for creating the Peninsula Songriders Sessions, which happen monthly at the Westernport Yacht Club, Marty has been mulling over getting a group of like-minded songbirds together for a while, and now’s the time to drop by mid-week to the St Marks Church Hall in Balnarring for a bit of vocal release.
He explains. “I just love singing, and a few of my friends said they’d like to have a go at a singing group. We had 20 people turn up on the first singing room session in August. It’s not a performance-driven thing; it’s just for the sake of it and about opening your mouth and singing. You don’t have to be an expert. You can be any age. I just pull out my guitar as a reference point and you follow the words on screen. We cover two songs per night plus there’s tea, coffee and biscuits on offer. It’s just about getting together with like-minded people who love to use their voice.”
Happening from 7.30-9pm on a Wednesday each month, the next singing room takes place on October 17 and then on November 14. If you’re in the mood to croon and don’t mind throwing caution to the wind, go along — just $10 will get you in.
