 The show started late for want of a crowd that never showed.
 But those who did show it were impressed by some beautiful guitar playing and heartfelt melodies.

 Victoria singer/ songwriter Zoubi Arros started her solo set plucking an old classical guitar.
She sang a lot of about relationships past and present. She introduced pretty much each song with the story behind it. There was a story about an ex who was still in love with his ex-fiance.

 She ended her set with the highlight “Cigarette.”
 Devarrow aka Sackville New Brunswick born, Victoria based musician Graham Ereaux followed up by sitting on a box drum and playing a whole lot of fleet fingered guitar. 

He played several songs from his new CD “The Great Escape.” In addition to being a talented guitar player, he also showed he is a talented singer, singing in a pleasant tenor voice reminiscent of Danny Michel.

 One of several highlights was “Walk On” about his first communion in Catholic school and an outstanding song based on the book 1984, which was aptly called “1984”  marked by the tortured chorus “Oh my God what have we done.”
