Big O!

Clevelanders of a certain age will bond over the epic tale of the Lawson’s 40 hour orange juice delivery. It’s our great privilege and pleasure to bring you this glorious rendition of a local classic.

SHHHHHHH! Fall Library Tour

We’re thrilled to kick off our 2017 Fall Library Tour at the Fairview Park branch on Thursday, 10/26/17, 7-8:30 PM, located at 21255 Lorain Road
Fairview Park, OH, 44126
. Our program, which we humbly call “Three Centuries of Song”, will bring our historic/nostalgic un-amplified repertoire to possibly the most quiet venue of our career.

Dust off your library card and mark your calendars, you’ll have a “barrel of fun” (so to speak).

Super Secret Shed Recital and Hot Dog Spectacular

Join us Friday, July 14th for a private recital and shed show, featuring 3 Star Hotdogs and our own mascot Spanky. We will provide unsanctioned entertainment from 7-10pm at a need-to-know location somewhere in the heart of Tremont.

Tip: locate the sound of insufferable strumming, then head west and follow the smell of roasting wieners. If you see a tuba, you’re in the right place. Flash the secret hand signal and you’re in! Be cool, don’t let the po-po know what’s going down!
