Then on to Douglas and once again a great crowd and a great party. There was great entertainment all day and night. We also divulged that Douglas was reported to be the party place on St. Paddys day, according to an article in ....(get this) ..playboy!!

CD release Party in Ottawa
February 29, 2008
Well, the CD release party put on by Blessed Scrament Parish was a great success. We sang to a sold out crowd of 200 people and according to the feedback, they could have sold more!!
We had the pleasure of the Trillium Accademy of Irish Dance feature some great entertainment and really pleased the crowd.
Chris Honegger then joined in with us to finish the evening off with lots of dancing.
But, I must say, the highlight was Fr Joe's "chicken song"!
Thanks to all those who made this a great success and helped sell our CD! And by the way, the jumbo was good!
