First off, Happy (very much belated) New Year to you all!
We are hard at work prepping for some shows coming up for 2013! We will have our first show March 9th, and we’ll be adding shows as they come up so keep watching our gig calendar to see where and when we’ll be playing next!
In the meantime, we have just joined the wide, wild, world of twitter! So if you want to see us act silly when we should be working, follow us @SoapyMusic. We’d be extra happy if you did.
Here’s a great photo of the full lineup for our gig at Tubby’s Tankhouse in Thunderbolt:
The whole gang's here!
More to come. Also, we just added another show on the 21st. We hope to see you there!
Tuesday, August 5th, Soap was invited to play Kavanaugh Square in Ardsley Park, Savannah, to lend its good vibrations to Ardsley’s National Neighborhood Night Out.
We were surprised to be joined by Congressman John Barrow – who rode a bicycle to the event – and the Savannah Police Chief, Michael Berkow. This was their first-ever Soap show, if you can believe that.
If you’re like me, then you probably didn’t know that National Neighborhood Night Out is a crime prevention initiative with the following objectives:
* Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness;
* Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs;
* Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and
* Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
Pusherman was definitely out of the question for this gig!
Just in case you think we’re all high-energy dance music, this photo shows our smoother side. Here we perform a garden party. The best moment of this gig was an all-members a cappella ending to Rivers of Babylon, which rang out over the neighborhood like church bells.
Soap had the honor of warming up the guests of Chatham Savannah Citizen Advocacy’s 30th Anniversary at the Hellenic Center. Continue reading
