I’m extremely excited to share with you all that Faheem will be playing piano for another sing a long showtunes night at the BlackFox Lounge in Washington DC this coming Tuesday 11/27/2012 from 8pm until 11pm. Although it isn’t professional people jumping up to sing like at Don’t Tell Mama in NYC, the crowd is extremely encouraging and everyone who wants to gets a chance to sing. That’s what I love about when Faheem does sing a long piano showtunes at the Blackfox Lounge in DC. There are a few things you need to know before you go to the piano bar downstairs in the restaurant for sing a long showtunes.

The first thing is that it is all based off of sheet music so if you don’t know the words, you need to be able to sing a long while he plays the piano. This can be a lot trickier than you think if you’ve never sang live. It can be a bit intimidating. Luckily it isn’t a huge crowd and everyone is there for fun so you’re nerves will be a lot more calm.
The next thing is that because it is all sheet music and played by sight, you may not find the songs you normally like. If you want a specific song and in a specific key, buy your own sheet music and bring it to make sure. Some songs are written in different keys or he may play at different speeds than you are used to practicing, which means if you don’t bring your own, he’s going to do the version in front of him. You can buy sheet music by clicking on any of the links below (just make sure not to use any coupons or I won’t get credit for the sales and they may not advertise with us anymore).
The last thing is that it is all about having fun and getting to sing with someone playing the piano. If you love theatre then you probably love watching video clips of your favorite stars singing with a piano player. This is the perfect opportunity for you to be able to sing with a piano player and in front of a small group of people who will support you and cheer you on, een if you are tone deaf and sound like crap like I do. =0) I love the group because everyone will welcome you over and because they pour strong drinks, you won’t be afraid to sing a long either.
I hope you can all make it to see Faheem at the Blackfox Lounge in the downstairs bar for his sing a long piano bar showtunes night. It is a lot of fun and only happens once a month. Also, unlike the other group, there is no one announcing everything and hogging the stage do you actually get to sing and have fun. See you all there and don’t forget to order drinks and Tip Faheem so he can buy new fingers after the show. They must kill him after playing ridiculous songs for a few hours without a break.
