The Moons Are Back!

The Fabulous Blue Moons are back and will be performing at Legacy Village on Saturday July 16th from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.    1972, a Sha Na Na Concert, and a back yard summer party is where it started.  For these Brush students, the next, and supposedly final goal, was to impress choir director, Lindley Hall, enough to let them perform in the Brush Vocal Music Fall Concert.  They auditioned, Mr. Hall smiled, and a phenomenon was born. Since then, The Fabulous Blue Moons have been making music and we've been listening. Hope to see you on July 16.  This is a party you won't want to miss!
