Faith Lawrence was hosting a foreign exchange student from Japan a couple years ago at her Lemon Grove home, which often doubles as the rehearsal studio for Apackalips Now, a vocal trio consisting of Lawrence, La Mesa resident Karen Hasman and San Carlos resident Lisa Hohman. Hearing the mellifluous melodies of the three ladies, the visiting student implored them to travel to Japan and sing for her friends and family.

The women of Apackalips Now are finally ready to do just that. They have booked a tour package to Japan in April and are growing more excited every day.

“We always talked about it, and now it is happening,” Lawrence said.

The trio sings in the style of the Andrews Sisters, counting classic tunes such as “Sugar Time,” “Let Yourself Go,” “Put Another Nickel In (the Nickelodeon)” and “Codfish Ball” as part of their repertoire.

Japan will be quite the change of pace from their typical lineup of local musical productions, which has included events such as Star San Diego, the Women of History Showcase, Senior Follies as well as personalized performances at retirement homes, hospitals and private parties.

Before they head west, however, the trio is available for hire to sing two love songs to someone special at any location for Valentine’s Day. Call Karen Hasman at 619-464-3727 for more information.
