Live at the Cavalcade: Victor and Penny
Check out the ukulele and guitar stylings of throwback duo Victor and Penny. Listening to "If It Ain't Love" I immediately thought of Joe Brown and his vocal and ukulele work on "I'll See You In My Dreams," the touching, closing song at the Concert for George Harrison. It's Victor's (Jeff Freling) voice and its tremolo character that is most reminiscent of Brown. It gives the song a sense of wistfulness, especially when he goes into a vocal trumpet breakdown. With Penny (Erin McGrane) adding ukulele, the track has a throwback, bouncy Vaudeville feel.
Victor & Penny are a Kansas City antique pop duo playing both covers and originals on guitar and ukulele, incorporating jazz guitar licks and charming vocals. It's music that's meant to be fun and infectious. There are no effects to hide behind, what you see is what you get. Victor and Penny are scheduled to perform live at the Cavalcade in Fruita tomorrow night (6/26).
