December 17: Gentle Lamb Experience

6:00 pm

This is our wonderful Motown group. Louis Lamb and the band bring back to life Marvin Gaye, The Four Tops, The Four Seasons and all the great Doo Wop music of the 60’s. What is so special about this group to us is that most of them have been around and playing this music since its beginning. They will certainly take you back to garage dances and belly rubbing with your first love!


The talented Houston-based artist, Alexis Andrei, will be showcasing her hand painted glasswares and hand painted cards! These playful and unique art pieces make great gifts for the holidays!

Artist Statement:
Art is my passion. It is a practice that has given me a meaningful way to explore the world around me. I am inspired by my surroundings, from the mundane to the amazing. Through color, texture, movement, and balance, each of my paintings offers its own personality and expression. These unique pieces offer viewers a stimulating platform for imagination, play and creativity.
