It's hard to know where to start with describing Jim Witter's "Piano Men" show—there are too many positives to list here! Our audience journeyed back to the 70s in Jim Witter's time machine and enjoyed every minute of it, really taking in the various commercial flashbacks and stories from "back in the day." Jim even gave us all an explanation of "Snowballing"—something truly Canadian!
It's always great to hear from our audiences that they enjoyed the performance, but after this concert we had so many tell us that it was the "best ever" performance they came to. With as polished as the tunes were, as professional as Jim and his band were, and as personable as they came across on stage, it was the kind of performance that drew you in from the first tune and refused to let you go at the end. At the audience's insistence, Jim Witter & company gave us a few great encores, ending the show with a little-known one-man-piano tune.
We also need to acknowledge our audience volunteers who helped out with "Crocodile Rock"—because without them, those of us who don't want to be on stage would have had to be onstage! So, a big thank you to Chris Mahner and his daughter Faustina, Dan and Margaret Higginbotham, and Michelle Tlusty.
