World Class Musicians Perform at Local Dance Party

For the third year in a row, “Chico Huff and Friends,” a trio of internationally-acclaimed performers and recording artists, will be providing the music at the Annual Dance Party and Silent Auction for the Phoenixville Area Time Bank (PATB), to be held Saturday, October 11 from 7 to 11 p.m. at the Moose Lodge, 920 Township Line Road , Phoenix ville.

“I was blown away by the music at our first dance two years ago,” said an enthusiastic PATB member at last year’s dance. “I just wasn’t expecting this quality and variety of dance music in my hometown at a function of our fledgling non-profit organization. I wouldn’t have missed this for the world!”

They may be local residents, but all the musicians have far-reaching recognition. Chico Huff has performed on electric bass in recordings with James Taylor, David Crosby of Crosby , Stills, and Nash, and with Jefferson Starship. He also accompanied Carley Simon on a movie soundtrack. Having performed throughout Europe as well as in Japan and Morocco , Huff does frequent tours with the Celtic ensemble Solas and other Irish groups. Closer to home, he has CD’s with artists Susan Werner and Liz Longley. Dave Cullen, winner of a Grammy for “Best Pop Instrumental Recording,” has performed throughout North America for classical guitar societies, jazz festivals, and performing arts series. His recordings on the acoustic guitar have been featured on NPR stations across America . Paul Jost, vocalist, drummer, and composer, can be heard nationally, performing jingles he has composed for Johnson & Johnson, American Air lin es, Nissan, Anheiser Bush, Subway, and Dow Chemical.

Besides dancing and socializing, attendees at the October 11 event will be able to enjoy food, soft drinks, as well as a cash bar, and can participate in a Silent Auction, bidding on an array of attractive items, services, and unique offers contributed by local merchants and professionals, as well as members and friends of Phoenix ville Area Time Bank, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.

Tickets for the PATB Dance Party and Fundraiser ($25 in advance, $30 at the door) can be obtained by visiting www.pa-timebank.com, or by cal lin g 610-608-9281. The Phoenixville Area Time Bank, now in its fifth year, is part of a world-wide social-change movement that builds community through members sharing their skills and services in exchange for Time Dollars. Each Time Dollar represents an hour of service. Typical services include: rides to the airport, gardening, pet care, household construction, food exchanges, and computer help.

Wow. So the South Main Street Cafe lasted, what, one month? That's odd.

Actually it was only open about 2 weeks and it sure is odd. I'd love to hear the real story.

Most recent info I've heard....the cook quit and a few days later when Helen went to go back and start cooking herself, the locks had been changed for failure to pay rent. Just hearsay understand, as I have no direct knowledge. A shame really. I thought the place had real potential. The place appears to be done for good until another renter comes along and opens a new business.

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website
