The Hot Flashes – 30’s, 50’s, 60’s Eclectic Female Vocal
August 23 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Back by request, the female vocal group, the Hot Flashes will be performing August 23, 2019 at the Meet Me Under the Bridge concert at Heritage Park in Wabasha from 7:00-8:30 pm.
The “Hot Flashes” women’s vocal group began as an offshoot of another community singing endeavor, “The Travelin’ Shoes Gospel Choir”, based in Pepin, Wisconsin. Several female members of that organization began singing together in 2008, meeting in one anothers homes and basing their early repertoire on familiar “girl group” songs of the ‘50’s & ‘60’s. Now these ladies gather weekly to rehearse at St. Sophia’s Church near Stockholm, Wisconsin.
They come together from a variety of professions: health care, traditional arts and crafts, farming, education, culinary arts, small businesses, and a few of us are even lucky enough to be “retired”! They have been together long enough to support one another through inevitable life changes from marriage and new beginnings to illnesses and bereavement.
The group generally numbers around 18-20 members who bring various levels of musical experience to the mix, from singing in the shower to singing in church. High school band instruments have found their way out of attics and closets and are now back in service when this group performs. The singers have now expanded their song list to include tunes from the early ‘30’s and into the 21st Century. With the instrumental accompaniment and enthusiasm of musical director Dave Zahn, the “Hot Flashes” share their joy of making music with one another and with their audiences.
