Zespół Slice of Pie wywodzący się ze środowiska polonijnego PIE został zaproszony przez Pana Konsula Generalnego RP, Mariusza Brymorę z Małżonką Grażyną, do zaprezentowania swojego trzeciego programu artystycznego.
Tytuł tego programu brzmi: “O dwóch takich, co tworzyli szlagiery“. Podczas koncertu Zespół przypomni przeboje kabaretowe okresu dwudziestolecia międzywojennego takich mistrzów pióra i klawiatury jak Marian Hemar i Jerzy Petersburski.
Na prezentację piosenek wspomnianych autorów zapraszamy dnia 6 lutego, w sobotę, na godzinę 18:00 (6:00 pm). Address:
817 Enchanted Way, Pacific Palisades, CA 90272
Nasz program będzie trwał około 1.5 godziny. Jego autorką i reżyserem jest Jolanta Siemieniewska. Przedstawimy 21 piosenek, z których conajmniej kilka z pewnością świetnie pamiętacie:

   1.     Tango milonga

   2.     Mały Gigolo                                                              

   3.     Ja się boję sama spać

   4.     Odrobinę szczęścia w miłości

   5.     Cztery nogi

   6.     Młodym być i więcej nic

   7.     Już nigdy

   8.     Tango andrusowskie

   9.     Ostatnia niedziela

  10.  Niebieska chusteczka

  11.  Sam mi mówiłeś                                                        

——   Przerwa   ——

12. Tyle jest miast

13. Kiedy znów zakwitna białe bzy

14. Mężczyzna, którego kocham           

15. Czy pani Marta…?               

16. Upić się warto                                                           

17. Wspomnij mnie

18. Nikt, tylko ty

19. Ten wąsik

20. Pamiętaj o tym wnuku

21. Mały Gigolo

HELLADA GALLERY

Come to enjoy Polish music, Polish beer, Polish food, and more. There will be art works and other creative works in Hellada Gallery and random creative magic on the street. There will be crafts and booths and live musicians. There will be free dance lessons, a designated beer garden area, and plenty of bustle within local eateries and shops. Join the fun! Folk dancing in the street, music, yummy food!

The Polish way to say “Folk dancing in the street, music, yummy food, and more!” is Zabawa na calego! (Pronounced: Zabava na tsawego!) You already know that, right?

Don’t miss the Polish-themed art walk event for family and friends. Over fifteen Polish-American institutions, as well as the Polish Consulate, are collaborating to make the event extra special!

The fun takes place just two blocks east of the First Street Station of the Metro Blue Line.

Come for free dance lessons! Come to learn some Polish-language words and phrases! Come to chat and stroll and dig the friendly scene up and down the street closure area!

Let’s turn Long Beach into one Polish Town, just this one day!
