This won't be so much of a review, as I've reviewed most of these bands many times, as it is a photo journal. I'm having a lot of fun with a camera. Torches are seen at right.
What a show this was. Knowing there were five acts performing, and as a host, I made sure to be there at 8 to see Ceeca (below) open the show. The Venice singer/songwriter had a nice gathering of friends who came out to support her. As a pianist/singer, she displays some of her obvious influences like Carole King and Joni Mitchell and not so obvious ones like Laura Nyro in the reflective and personal nature of her lyrics. Her voice is a well trained instrument and shows great range from quietly conversational to peeling like a bell. Nice opening.
