RED BANK, NJ - The Matinee Idles is a barbershop chorus that meets and performs during the day (their wives won't let them out at night.) "Most of us," in the words of their long-time member, Tom Cameron, "are retired, semi-retired, or just plain tired." However, don't call them senior citizens; they think of themselves as recycled teenagers. And they still look at girls. Only they can't always remember why.
The Matinee Idles, perform regularly at luncheon meetings, club meetings and other occasions where light-hearted entertainment is called for. Their usual program is a blend of upbeat tunes, seasoned with some inspirational music and well loved patriotic songs and blended with a touch of humor. If your club or service organization is looking for ways to enliven your meetings, try the Matinee Idles.
The Matinee Idles will perform in An A Cappella Holiday, the annual concert of the Red Bank Area Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society. The concert will be held December 13, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. at the Ocean Township High School Auditorium, West Park Avenue, Oakhurst, NJ (just South of the Monmouth Mall.)
Men who are available during the afternoons and enjoy singing and learning music are invited to attend a weekly rehearsal. Telephone: Phil Wilderotter (732) 229-7687.
