Funking Up the Jan. 2018 First...

Enduring one of the coldest First Friday's in a long time, fans of the local band REMINISCENCE filled Cheeky Monkey on January 5th. And they were not disappointed by them. Playing many familiar songs, the all instrumental band helped us keep warm with toe tapping tunes such as Stevie Wonder's 'Isn't She Lovely' and especially 'Superstition'. Another favourite was the Mark Ronson/Bruno Mars hit 'Uptown Funk'. Their playlist was perfectly suited for Reminiscence who rely on bass guitar, drums, keyboard, saxophone and trombone to jazz up their song selections. I had many listeners comment on how enjoyable it was to hear them, including music teacher and musician Al Weiss. He gave them high praise and encouraged them to reach even further to lift their performances to the next level he is sure they can attain. Hopefully, in the future, you will get chances to see and hear them again. With four of the ...
