Hi everyone!

This is our aptly named, Barbershop Harmony Society Las Vegas International Convention 2014 blog. Here we will be posting content that you can follow through our rehearsals and onward to our appearance in Las Vegas 2014.

We have already learned today that the MGM grand is fully booked for the duration of the convention. This may pose some challenges for the chorus as we start to fill rooms in New York, New York. (Similar to the couscous joke?). Which apparently is just across the street.

Fundraising has been boosted by the money saved on holidays booked through a special arrangement negotiated by our very clever Public Relations Officer John Kelsey. Also the chorus has been really pulling out the stops to get the money rolling in. There is more information on how people can help here. We will be adding a total update to help us visualise our progress.

On an exciting note we have heard the first draft of part of our arrangement for the Las Vegas International Convention next year. That is all we are willing to say at this stage!

So we open this blog section the week after a brilliant reception at LABBS in Llandudno, where we debuted our Rock package. Fun was had by all and the fun we had with everyone before and afterwards using social media and our ever growing Facebook page has been so enjoyable. All we can say is watch this space Las Vegas, watch this space!

Cheers
