Wow. Vashon got a huge treat recently in Vicci Martinez’s performance at the last “Church.” At about the three-minute mark this video will put goosebumps on your goosebumps! Where do I buy the album? (maybe her site, www.VicciMartinez.com?)
This Tacoma resident is currently featured on “The Voice” with Cee Lo Green as her coach.
You may have seen the story. You may have been to a show! Time to laugh, poke a little fun at our Vashon ways and just cut loose.
Sunday brings the Church of the Great Rain “VD” special. You choose what the VD signifies; we choose good company at the O Space.

Wow. Awesome. The energy of the crowd and performers at the Sunday -O- showing of Church of Great Rain was hummin’. How will the group top that performance? The bar is set high. Way high. We have our own Prairie Home Companion-meets SNL-meets Almost Live and it rocks.
The Church House Band traversed genres, from The Who to Right Said Fred, with ease and got in on the fun. If you pay attention, you’ll understand a very deliberate connection from skit to song. Danny O’Keefe with guest Joel Tepp (who has played with Bonnie Raitt and gobs of chart-toppers and is a treat in his own right) and their sweet-voiced singing companion nearly moved us to “eye leaks.” The next event is Oct. 31 (Sunday). It’s all fine for kids, but leave the wiggling, squealing ones at home. Please.
For those who missed out, you’ll catch it here, on VOV, go to Facebook, or scope out YouTube in a search for past acts.
My favorites from last night were:
Reappointing VMICC – the folly of board formalities
Vashon Fashion show – “pilled sweater with calf length skirt…Thriftway re-bags in black, green and SGK pink?” Killed it!
Roll call – The multiple, hyphenated, even hybridized last names on Vashon are epidemic! Genealogy be damned.
Eastern WA bad dream – Yes, “Spokanatchee,” we do commute by boat.
Thank you for being witty, for not dumbing it down, for showing us so much talent, and for giving us Jeff’s voice. Amen.
