BF Moose Lodge hosts Big Band Brunch

BELLOWS FALLS — Featuring the music of Frank Sinatra, Rosemary Clooney, Ella Fitzgerald and other greats, the first Big Band Brunch will be held Sunday, June 30, at the Moose Lodge, 59 Westminster St.

The event begins at 11:30 a.m., with brunch served in the hall until 1 p.m., followed by dancing and live on-stage performances with regional vocalists and 2019 Keene Idol finalists Zac Binney and Allie McGahie from 1 to 3 p.m.

The full-course brunch menu includes quiche, fruit and cheese board, bacon, baked ham, home fries, pastries, and croissants. The cash bar will feature beer, wine, spirits, four different kinds of mimosas, margaritas, and the “Ultimate Bloody Mary.”

Amie Theroux is the new administrator at the Moose Lodge, and she has been working with a team of members to update the facility.

“We have recently painted the function hall, waxed the original tongue and groove oak dance hall flooring, which dates back to the early 1950s, installed a bar in the room so that the space is entirely private, and purchased new table linens and curtains,” she said in a news release. “Our elevator ensures accessibility for those with mobility issues, and parking is readily available on the street.”

Both singers have considerable live performance experience and have earned reputations for their vocal prowess and song interpretation.

McGahie was the grand prize winner of Southern Vermont Idol in 2017 while Binney placed second, and they were Top Ten finalists in the 2019 Keene Idol. They have performed in a variety of events over the past 15 years, first as vocalists and more recently as musical theater performers.
