Lighten Your HEARTS
T Russell ____ Melodic tones are heard all over Big Bear Valley, especially in
the summertime. Have you ever imagined that you’re hearing the Carpenters? Helen Reddy singing ‘I am Woman’? Often Joy and Joey Sellarole ‘are the music’ that
guests enjoy at the Wine Room at Wolf Creek Resort. This duo team is the Heart Lights that can be heard on Friday
evenings in the Village of Big Bear Lake. Recently, they entertained at the 40th
Anniversary Celebration for the Bear Valley Community Hospital.
and shoppers began hearing this delightful couple entertaining ten years ago, during
the holidays at the Haus & Home Furniture when the store was located in the
Interlaken shopping center. Joe Sellarole would take his keyboard and set up in
front of the store. Haus and Home owner Al Ferguson, former member of the
Hondelles, would join Joe with his guitar.
Joe’s wife, Joy would join in, too. A friend became very impressed with
the singing group as well as Joe’s unique style of making the keyboard do
incredible arrangments. She encouraged Joe (now spelled Joey) and Joy to
organize and promote themselves as the ‘Heart
Lights’. It seemed like a burst of new energy for the Heart Lights that soon brought new gigs, weddings, events, private
parties, and holiday occasions, not to mention their music ministry with local
Sellarole’s joined CATS, Community Arts Theater Society that really filled the acting
bill for Joe’s talent for comedy; probably rubbed-off from his days with
Disneyland. Joy has confidentially developed into an out-going, professional
singer. In June, the Scare Crow was characterized by Joe.
August 18th, the internationally known theatre organist, Bob Salisbury, will
play his famous underscoring for the 1927 classic silent movie, College starring Buster Keaton. The event is a benefit for CATS and the CATS Warehouse Theater. Heart
Lights will entertain during the dinner starting at 6:30 P.M. Showtime
