The Do Lollies – a 20’s band, describes life and thoughts on music.
Every year, we have our regular season of playing every weekend at the theater. But this year, we’ve got a few extra gigs lined up. First, we’ll be playing for a few hours for the Bethel Nazarene Church in Nampa. We’re going to play a ton of music from the ’20s and ’30s. They have regular activities with their members, and they came and saw us at the theater last year. They had so much fun, and so did we. So, they invited us to come and play for one of their activities. We’re thrilled to go and play for them. They were a wonderful crowd full of excitement and they knew all our songs.
Some of the songs we’ll be singing are favorites, such as I’ll Fly Away, Oh Johnny, Oh!, Ma, He’s Makin’ Eyes At Me, Aint She Sweet, Three Little Fishies, What’ll I Do?, Button Up Your Overcoat, Columbus Stockade Blues… and more!
Then, in June, we’ll be playing at the Boise Train Station for a private wedding. That’s going to be fantastic! It’s such a great venue with historic appeal. The couple is really sweet and has a Disney theme with Moon and Stars. So, we’ll be featuring songs such as Fly Me To the Moon, Blue Moon, Carolina Moon, Moonlight Serenade, and When You Wish Upon a Star, among others.
We’re always looking for a good time and love to dress up in our 20’s clothing. Then, we show up and really make an impact with the whole nostalgia of the evening. It’s fun to have these extra gigs to look forward to. If you have something special coming up, let us know right away so we can schedule it. It really does fill in fast in the summer, so it’s important to let us know right away if you have anything coming up.
Hope your year is turning out just as great as ours!
As you may have noticed, we haven’t been very active on our social media recently. We’ve been busy, sick, tired, distracted, and every other excuse you could imagine. We haven’t even had time to practice together for a bit.
Well, all that is about to change.
You see, every year, we have a personal challenge to record music in February. This year, we’re really taking this challenge to heart. Watch for fun songs to be recorded and released soon!
OK, so maybe it’s just been Amy’s personal challenge, but she has convinced Vern to cooperate with her personal goal to record and produce music this coming month. It’s all part of a worldwide challenge for musicians of every kind to record songs in February and publish them online.
Of course, we’re hoping to get Jim’s beautiful guitar and harmonies on this deal, too. After all, it wouldn’t really be the Do Lollies without him.
We’ve got a few songs in mind, but we’re still open to ideas from you. Ideally, they’d be songs from the ’20s and ’30s, but we have been known to do other eras as well. I know we’re working on a few moon-themed songs for an upcoming wedding, so we’ll probably include those.
We’re thinking of maybe “Fly Me To The Moon” and “Blue Moon” as well as one of our favorites, “When You Wish Upon a Star”. We’d love to hear what you think. Join the conversation over on our Facebook page. We’ll be sure and take some videos and post them there as well as links to our Spotify songs as we go.
One request that would really help us out is if you could go to the Spotify links when we post them on Facebook and listen to the entire track and add it to your playlist. That’s it. It seems like a little thing, but it really would help us a ton!
How many songs can we get recorded in one month? We’ll soon see. Help cheer us on by leaving comments on our Facebook page.
As always, thanks for your support. We love what we do. We hope you will, too. And if you’d like to book us for an event, please contact us today.
We’ve recently released two new songs, Oh Johnny, Oh Johnny, Oh! and Sh Boom! You can hear them on spotify by clicking on the names. Amy sings Oh Johnny Oh and Vern sings Sh Boom. We had so much fun recording and mixing these songs. We’ll be sure to get better at recording as time goes by. Hopefully you enjoy listening. We plan to release a song about once a month. Watch our facebook page for more information.
You too can take pictures like this. It takes a special kind of person to get the most intense stares, and most haunting photos of people who have done their best to look good. You’ll learn phrases like, “Don’t smile”. And, “You can smile, but keep your mouth closed.” You’ll also learn to avoid the pressure of showing people their photos before they have paid for them. You’ll learn to say things like, “That’s perfect. We’ve got it.” This will ensure that people are feeling at ease about their photos.
When you finish this 6 week course, you will be prepared to work at places like, the local DMV, passport photo studios, the city jail, and company HR divisions.
Most people would expect to pay as much as $5,000 for a course of this quality. But you can sign up today for only $299.99. Operators are standing by.
But wait, there’s more. If you sign up today, you can get the bonus video on work badge ID specialization. This will qualify you to get the highly sought after job of HR photographer.
Call now before your auto warranty expires.
If you’re looking to hire a good band that plays 20s songs, we can do that, too.
We had a fun practice yesterday, full of photo shoots and recording videos. Here’s our version of cool water. Hope you like it! One of our favorite things to do is dress up and have fun playing songs from the 20’s and 30’s. Our friend, Dalia Herrerra took some awesome pictures that we used to update our website. Finally, Jim has a place in the band after over a year and a half of playing with us.
He found us one night playing at the Opera Theater. He thought it would be fun to play with us because he knew all the songs we were singing. We have been playing together ever since. It’s been so fun to have the extra harmonies and great guitar picking that he adds.
And what a year! While everyone else was completely shut down with COVID restrictions, we managed to play for the theater in Glenns Ferry, which was one of the few theaters that was able to operate this year. With our summer shows and the Frankenstein show, we had a fun season.
And, now, we are gearing up for more online videos and blogs and live events so we can keep up with our passion for music. So, if you would like to keep up with all that’s going on, make sure and follow us on facebook and youtube. We’ll be posting new videos each week and new photos of the band all the time. You won’t want to miss out. We have fun contests and prizes in mind for our favorite fans. It’s definitely a party you’ll want to be in on.
With our favorite list of songs growing all the time, our hardest question each time we get together is, which songs should we play? We love them all. We often wish we could just play all the time because it’s so sad when we have to go home. There’s just not enough time in the day to play all the songs we love.
Join the conversation and let us know which songs are your favorites.
We have just ended our summer season at the Historic Opera Theater in Glenns Ferry. It was a great year, even though we got off to a slow start with COVID. Now, we’re getting ready for the Frankenstein radio drama in October. It should be a lot of fun. We’ll be playing songs from the 30’s and 40’s with some old fashioned commercials in between. Come and listen for a unique and entertaining event that is sure to scare anyone.
We have just added a bunch of videos to YouTube from this summer at the theater.
Unfortunately due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Do Lollies will be postponing any future concerts or events until the situation has improved, been contained, and the lock-down is no longer in effect! Please remember to stay safe by being super cautions of your personal hygiene, practice safe social distancing, and together we will get through this! God Bless America!
