Cookin’ up the Gumbo

Singing Group P5 Sets Event for Nov. 6

If you are feeling fun, fearless and ready to join in an adventure, save Sunday, Nov. 6 at 4 p.m. for a unique event at the new Base Camp cybercafe in Pine Mountain Village.

The effervescent singing group started by Ginger Martin’s talented daughters, known in the past as S.O.S. and now as P5 or The Perfect Fifth, are cooking up authentic Creole gumbo, a New Orleans Thanksgiving tradition that is part of the family’s heritage.

Come join in the feast, make a donation and hear about a grand dream to bring together local and world talents in an international project by Mary Ann Halpin called Fearless Women, Visions of a New World which includes a book, CD and performances in Los Angeles and other cities.

This summer P5 won the Lori Smith Memorial Performing Arts Scholarship. Sarah-Jane Owens, stand-out lead guitarist and vocalist in the popular 1980s British ‘girl band,’ The Belle Stars, is mentoring the group.

Save the date: Sunday, Nov. 6, 4 p.m. at the new Base Camp, 16225 Askin Drive, #12 in Pine Mountain Village (behind the Gazebo). Food, drink, desserts, music, fun and a big dream to share.—By Patric Hedlund
