UPDATE: Monday did roll round again…and again it was a night of great music and incredible fun for all at Ce Soir!
TerryLynn Melody is a songress who brings both beauty and power to her set. THAT VOICE! She can soothe us with sweet love songs or belt out the blues or some soul-searching country like nobody else. Last night was yet another example of her talent and deep understanding of music and the great gift she has been given. And not only the singing, mind you! This girl plays great guitar and can write a song that will wrap itself around your heart. You missed it? Well…she’ll be singing other places round the grid, so look her up, already! Of course, she will return to Ce Soir in two weeks’ time. Watch here for a reminder, or join the Ce Soir Subscrib-O-Matic for a notice. Whatever you do…DON’T MISS OUT!
Edward Kyomoon took the place by storm – as he always does on his Monday night gigs. He’s a wizard, I swear, and that energy is palpable from the first note to the last. He always has a surprise up his sleeve, and last night was no exception. You all know by now that we LOOOOOVVVEEEE the piano (along with the guitar, violin, flute, saxophone, banjo, and KAZOOOOO!)…so…when Edward leapt to the piano last night, we were thrilled. But wait! It was even better than that! It was a NEW SONG to boot! And then…he sang one of my all-time faves as a closer: Free Bird by Lynyrd Skynyrd. His performance of it was spot-on and he seems to sing my faves a lot – mostly because he sings outstanding songs and rocks like there is no tomorrow. AWESOME!
What to say about Tukso Okey? Well…he’s amazing. Hm. Said too much, this “he’s amazing”? Yes, probably. But you know what? Sometimes it just is what it is…and Tukso IS amazing! Last night, he proved it again…opening with some bright, moving originals that got our mojo working, taking us up to a fever-pitch…and then…it happened: THE TUKSO ZONE. Oh, mercy me! He had us in the palm of his hand and that song, that SONG he was creating right before our eyes and ears! It wended its way deep into us as we went along on the magic carpet ride that is The Tukso Experience. Catch him somewhere…and soon…for there is absolutely nothing like a Tukso concert! Every-other-Monday at Ce Soir will do nicely…if you can wait. <insert knowing smile here!>
Here, below, is the original post inviting you all to come round to Ce Soir and enjoy…but I just had to sing about that fantastic night…last night!
