 This time, they featured a couple fantastic acts, April 11.

Duane Forrest was up first to play a set of soulful solo acoustic music. He sounded like Dave Matthews singing ‘80s pop along the lines of UB40 with just a touch of jazz as his fingers flew over the fretboard of his guitar.
 He played a variety of upbeat originals and threw in a  beautiful version of Nancy Sinatra’s “Bang, Bang,” before bringing up Amy Thiessen to sing a blues song with him.

 Thiessen sang a beautiful set of original jazz tinged pop music, she sang with much soul and passion.
 She had a powerful voice which turns heads and silenced a particularly loud crowd sitting at one table by mere virtue of her presence.
She supplied the beautiful melodies while Duane Forrest provided a rick tapestry of acoustic guitar sounds.
