Tristyn stirs Wild Girls; Nance Heats Up Wharf

Tristyn Homewood brought his homestyle mix of bluesy rock and pop, all with a southern flair, to the Wharf Cafe and Beach Venue.  This good ol' boy is a seasoned pro - his range can go from George Thorogood to Chris Isaak to Joe Cocker to ZZ Top, to a range of contemporary pop to classic rock to rockin' country - and even ballroom ballads.

He brings a visual experience to stage with his three piece band - McKenzie Homewood (guitar/sax), Susan Hereter (drums), and Cindi Mulford (keyboard).  

Of course, that is the act, but the truth is - the guy can sing.   You can feel his heart pulse through country and southern rock.  Still saying that, he can handle any genre.    Beyond that, he produces his own music machinima,

The shame is he's been on the grid since 2007, and this is the first show I caught of him.  Shame on me!  So much talent on the grid, and I'm getting to them all one by one.

Following him was Nance Brody, with her luscious vocals and brilliant sense of (sensual) storytelling through music.  She brings to stage original songs and a powerful yet intimate stage presence.  She is another seasoned talent in the SL music scene.

The night started with the wonderful Claire Dirval who reminds me so much of Melissa Etheridge with her deep rich vocals.     Claire is certainly one of the most well known musicians in Second Life, and definitely is a joy to listen as a musician and an entertainer who connects with her audience.
