On July 21, 2016 a quartet from Cuivre! had some fun playing at the newly revived Merced Street Faire. The group played a set of pop tunes, including: Daisey Bell (A Bicycle Built for Two), Funiculi-Funicula, Give My Regards to Broadway, Hello! Ma Baby, Take Me Out to the Ball Game, The Band Played On, Yankee Doodle Boy, You’re a Grand Old Flag, and an arrangement of America the Beautiful by member Kathie Mackie.
To paraphrase Starman:
With the setting sun and the last note played, it’s time to take a bow. But, wait a minute!
Finally, to thunderous applause:
Next up: Cuivre! will perform at the Art Kamangar Center at the Merced Theater on Saturday, October 8, 2016 at 5:30 p.m., followed by John and Ken on the Alphorns at 6:30.
And Cuivre! will be returning to play Oom-Pah music for the Octoberfest dinner at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Turlock on October 30, 2016.
