This Group "Take Note" play locally in the Bonita Springs area and we enjoy their Music and friendship. Dom Parisi is a music talent and  a whiz on the computer. "Maxine" Mickey Meitz sings with the style that is what we enjoy. We just don't get to see them often enough.

They play songs from "The Great American Songbook". Those are the tunes penned by Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Johnny Mercer, Jerome Kern, Lerner & Lowe, and others.  We love them and do our best to keep them alive and well.

We recommend them and know you will enjoy their great playing and singing. 

 Max's husband Frank is one of the few winner of the Ernest Hemmingway look-a-like contest held in Key West each year. We have had some great times with them. Frank Meitz, "Papa Hemmingway" hang out with Ron and Joan enjoying the the sounds of "Take Note's" at a Bonita Springs watering hole.
