Saturday, February 16th-Mark Romano and Friends
Well, Mark didn't send me anything to write about this week, so he's at my mercy. Come on down and hear Mark perform some of his country songs for you this Saturday. You'll just love his rich and mellow voice. He'll entertain you telling his stories in song, and he always has quite a line-up of musical guests. So that MARK ROMANO on Saturday night.
Sean Wiggins and Friends
Once again, we'll be joined by our very own "soul diva," SEAN WIGGINS. It is said that Sean could easily be misidentified as a simple singer/songwriter, but what she does is so much more. She actually takes you into her world and makes you feel right at home. Whether she's sitting right here at our piano or strummin' away on her guitar, Sean's voice will wrap its warmth around you. She'll be joined by the rich bluesy harp playing of Linda Moss. Please be sure to join us on Sunday evening to hear Sean and her many friends.
