The first year for my “Calyp-Soul Christmas” show went off
I launched the first “Calyp-Soul Christmas” Show in Sarasota, FL at the Players Theater. We had a great audience that evening and while some weren’t sure what to expect from a steel drum christmas show, all of left the evening ready to buy tickets to next year’s show (which is already booked for November 21, 2014…mark your calendars!) I used a group of talented musicians from right here in the Sarasota area and they really stepped up to the plate to help bring this show to life! I have a feeling you’ll be seeing a bit more of them associated with the JP Project!
The next Christmas show was just outside Chicago at the beautiful Arcada Theater in St. Charles, IL. The lovely Ms. Nadirah Shakoor joined us to help rock the theater from beginning to end and bring an “Island Christmas” to the Midwest! This show was so much fun to do and we all had a great time performing for such an enthusiastic crowd! The band was treated to the delicious catering of the extremely generous J.R. Hutson and his restaurant, “The Village Tavern and Grill” in Schaumburg, IL. I highly recommend stopping in for a taste of ANYTHING on the menu, but the band favored the chicken fingers and world famous dipping sauce! Thanks to J.R. and the whole crew at The Village Tavern and Grill for making this show especially… tasty!
