scott-6The 2009 LA Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce Gala Event will have a strong True Blood presence with our favorite composer Nathan  Barr pairing up with the dulcet voice of Lisbeth Scott to perform the wonderful song, “Take Me Home”.  This is the song that Nathan and Lisbeth created to accompany the incredible ‘pie scene’ from True Blood’s first season episode “Cold Ground” and which is now available on Nathan and Lisbeth’s new True Blood (Soundtrack) CD.  In addition Nathan and Lisbeth will be introduced by series creator and producer Alan Ball!  There is even a rumored guest appearance by another True Blood cast member which we will reveal if/when their appearance is confirmed.

And the best news is that the event is open to the public and YOU can attend and hear Lisbeth and Nathan perform “Take Me Home” live!  According to their website the LA Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (LAGLCC) is an organization of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and gay-allied businesses, professionals, and individuals, who have joined together to effect positive growth in ourselves, our work, our community and our future. Since it’s inception the LAGLCC has been a positive voice for the LGBT community. Their activities include dinners, webinars, political activism, and community outreach.
