December 2020 VOCAL Showcase
Once again, due to covid19, VOCAL presented it’s monthly showcase via a Zoom/Facebook virtual meeting.
Playing tonight were six songwriters. As it was a Christmas showcase, it was suggested that each songwriter do at least one holiday song.
Up first was Jeff Wagner, who along with his wife Sherri as accompanist performed two songs.
He was followed by James Lester, who did a set of four mainly blues songs including a tribute to Leon Redbone.
He was followed by Glen King, who seldom performs, with a set of three songs, including a New Year’s Eve song,
Matt Manion performed next, and did 3 songs including a take off on Chuck Berry,
Carol Torricelli, aka “Torch”, shared two songs, one inspired by her experience of the pandemic.
Long time member and frequent showcase performer, Steve Nuckolls followed with a few of classic songs and after him, Glenda Creamer did a pair of numbers.
All in all, it was a great night of excellent music and cheery greetings.
