Elvis Birthday Bash at The Standing Room:

Friday, January 8, 2016 - 8.30PM - Close
Presented By: The Standing Room

Come celebrate the Kings 80th Birthday with California's ONLY 12 piece Elvis Tribute, GRACEBAND 8:30 PM   at The Standing Room  in  Hermosa Beach 

Graceband is an explosion of fun, high-energy, rock n roll.  Channeling the best of “The King’s” Vegas years, you'll hear the big hits with big arrangements. You know the songs, but you haven't heard them done like this.  C.C. Rider, Heartbreak Hotel & Suspicious minds?  Sure we got that.  How about a little Zeppelin and AC/DC?  Well, we’ve got that too.  Graceband is the most authentic sounding tribute you will find, complete with a full horn section, backup singers and a world class stage show of lights, lasers, karate, and for a few lucky ladies, a silk scarf. 

Graceband was founded in Redondo Beach, California in 1996.  Like most bands, they started modestly as a regular four piece set up, playing backyards and bowling allies.  Almost 20 years later, they are now a 12 piece touring band featuring The Horns o’ Plenty and accompanied by the GraceNotes.  Simply put, they are the Hardest Working Band in Showbiz, with their big sound and spectacular show bringing down the house everywhere they play.  Founding members Chris & Ryan will tell you, “We do more than impersonate, we celebrate.”

Halloween Safety for Kids & Teens
Kids love Halloween! They get to dress up and get free candy! What a perfect holiday! Give your kids some precious Halloween memories that they'll have for life.

Some of you kids already know things that you can do to be safe, like how to cross the street, not to talk to or go with strangers and things like that. But we adults know how exciting Halloween can be and that can make you forget to be careful.

Here's some tips that we have just for you kids, to help keep you safe on Halloween night! Some of these ideas are called "common sense" ideas, that means that they are things that you should know and use every day in life. You are never too young to learn!

Never, ever go into a strangers house or even ring their door for treats unless your parents are with you and say that it's okay. There are some people in life that aren't very nice to kids and you have to be careful. Always make sure that your mom or dad is within sight when you go out trick-or-treating.

Be careful when you cross a street. Make sure to look in both directions and make sure that there are no cars coming. If you have a little brother or sister with you, take their hand and help them get across the street, too. If the street has a stop light, wait until the cross walk light tells you that it's okay to cross now, but still check before you cross, look both ways.

If you are an older kid or young teen, and going out with friends, make sure that your parents know where you are going and who you are going with. This may seem like a pain but they are your parents and they love you. They just want you to be safe.

If you can drive and are taking a bunch of friends to a party, make sure that you have enough gas to get there. You don't want to run out on a dark street, all alone, like a bad horror movie!

If you parents give you a curfew, be home when they say. It builds trust between you and them and they are doing it for your own safety. If you are going to be late, call them and let them know.

Vandalism is never cool! Throwing eggs at cars and houses is not cool. Someone has to clean it up and it could be you, if you get caught. You can also be arrested and punished as a juvenile. So, don't think that it's fun only if you can get away with it. It's never the right thing to do! Think about how you would feel if someone did that to your house and how bad it would make you feel.

Hurting animals is never acceptable behavior! Some people use Halloween as an excuse to hurt cats and that is just wrong! Not only is it illegal in most places to hurt or torture animals and punishable by law, you should never hurt a helpless living thing.

Have fun on Halloween but keep it safe, have some good, clean fun and your parents will trust you for many Halloweens to come! Showing them how responsible you can be will give you a feeling of pride and make them see just how adult you really are



Heart Shaped Crayons for the kids (pictured above)

1. Ashley got the heart pan she used at Ikea a few years ago, but she found a similar heart mold pan here. "The beauty of this project is that any shape will do," Ashley says. So if you've already purchased cards for the kids' classmates this Valentine's Day, you can find flowers, butterflies, even shark fin molds here.

2. Dig through the kids' crayon buckets and take out all the broken pieces. Peel away the paper and place several in each mold. "The more colors, the better," Ashley explains.

3. Place the pan on top of a foil-lined cookie sheet to prevent any overflow from coloring the inside of your oven. Ashley set her oven to 250°F and let the crayons melt for about 10 to 20 minutes. "You just have to keep an eye on them," she advises. "My kids loved watching the process."

4. Once they've melted, remove the pan from the oven, let the crayons cool, then pop them out of the molds. You'll have swirls of colorful fun waiting to be put to paper.
