The 6th Annual Sweetheart Duets Hoot

Monday Feb. 11
@ The Melting Point
8-10pm admission is FREE
This month’s Hoot features an evening of twos as musical couples take the stage.  We’re setting up two musical chairs on stage. Nine different musical couples will be taking those chairs and singing and playing a short selection of songs. Several of the couples are in Athens area bands, but most do not perform just as a duo or in the same group!  I’ve told them they don’t have to play love songs, but what they choose to sing with be very telling. It’s a fast paced evening full of love & laughter!  The perfect show for an early Valentines date….and it’s FREE!  Susan Staley opens with her sweetheart &  hosts the evening.   susanstaley@gmail.com for more information or visit our Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/groups/athensfolk
