Local Music Notebook: Crooners & Cartoons

A loose collection of whatnot.

1. "The friends and family of John Giovannoni, former co-owner of The Music Room in Palatine, will gather this weekend to celebrate the local man's life," PalatinePatch notes.

"As a way to honor Giovannoni's dying wish to forgo a funeral and memorial service and instead throw a party, friends and family have organized a 'Celebration of the life of John Giovannoni' for this Sunday, Feb. 17, according to the Daily Herald. Giovannoni, 45, died on Jan. 13, according to his obituary."
