 They had  a decent crowd of about 40 people digging their tunes. Rheamue strummed an acoustic guitar and danced like a rock star, doing Pete Townsend windmills and having a blast.

She reflected popular female folk/ rock singers like Sheryl Crow. She added extra percussion with the help of a tambourine which she tapped with a bass drum pedal and sang beautiful back up vocals on Marc Charron’s songs. The audience could tell she was in the mood to rock and roll.

Charron, sitting behind a half a drum kit with a tambourine on a cymbal stand, strummed guitar as he added a more exotic flair with his superb tenor voice. He added extra drums and guitar to Rheaume’s music.

They took turns playing songs from their CDs as well as a variety of covers  including Rheaume’s version of “Wagon Wheel,” and Charron’s exceptional version of “Take Me Home Country Roads.” They added appropriate musical pieces to each other’s songs.
