    Enjoy a coffeehouse evening with the Boys in Hats! They'll bring their songs from farm, sea, and railroad, as well as the strange corners you turn in the course of life. Bring your voices and sing along! The cover fee includes beverages and one dessert (if you need more sweetness, a couple dollars gets you another one).

    Boys in Hats will headline the October edition of Music on the Green, a brand-new series of the United Congregational Church. We promise an evening of great music and corny humor! At least, that's what the series website says... We think we can definitely deliver on the corny humor.

    Boys in Hats will make their first foray to Shelton (Really! Can you believe it?) to play for a fundraising program. Members and friends of the Huntington Congregational Church will be traveling to work with Simply Smiles, and the money raised this evening will help them to help. There will be plenty of treats, plenty of eats, and (naturally) lots of music, laughs, and fun.
