BeezNeez ready to serenade your sweetie

This will be the eighth year that the BeezNeez will be singing their hearts out on Valentines Day.

“It has become a tradition for us,” says barbershop quartet member Marilyn Johnson. “On Thursday, February 14 from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. the BeezNeez Quartet will go anywhere within the Prince George City limits to sing a song for your loved one. This could be a sweetheart/spouse, friend, family member, parent, child – whomever.”

There are four different songs to choose from, she says: It Had to Be You (for sweethearts, spouses), That’s What Friends Are For (for friends), Somebody Loves You (for families), and Can You Feel the Love Tonight (for children).

“From the past eight years signing Valentine-grams, we have many stories to tell. The reactions we get are priceless. From the tears of happiness to those of extreme embarrassment and everything in between,” said Johnson. “We’ve had unique experiences. Last year, for instance, we sang for someone at a local pulp mill. We had to don hard hats and safety vests to get to where we needed to sing.”

Often the song is sung for a gathering audience.

“Usually when we sing, the person who is receiving the song does not know we are coming. However at the place of business, whether it is an office, industrial place/home/school/hospital, etc., there are others that know about it and they all gather around to watch and listen.”

To order your special Valentine Treat – for $25 your Valentine will receive a beautiful song, a red flower and a small packet of chocolates. For more information about this personalized Valentine’s gift, phone 250-564-9130.
