Jenny Gill rocked the Listening Room!

When Kristi and I caught Jenny's show at The Listening Room last year, I was not aware that she was so talented. I was looking for a place for us to go one weekend and thought it would be cool to see her perform. Since then we have gone from being curious listeners to full-fledged fans.

The night started with an acoustic set by Audrey Spillman. I was blown away from her first note. She has a wonderful, soulful style that reminds me of singers like Patty Smyth. This is one talented gal.

Sam Brooker accompanied her with some very tasteful acoustic guitar playing and harmony vocals. Even though I didn't want her set to end, I couldn't wait to hear Jenny sing with her band.

We were not disappointed! Her song selection was awesome and her R&B style is really amazing. I think my favorite song of the night was her version of the Bill Wither's song "Use me".

But the best moment of the night for me was when she took a minute to sing "Happy Birthday" to me. I wish I didn't have such a goofy look on my face in this picture...hahaha.

You know it is a good show when you don't want it to end. I can't wait to catch her next show at 12th & Porter later this month. She is one classy lady.

Thank you Jenny for a memorable Birthday! Oh...it was very cool meeting your Dad too. That was just icing on a very special Birthday cake.

Peace,

Phil

It was a great night. I don't think I'll ever be able to top this birthday, but I'm sure going try! :)

Love,

Quote of the year...

“Be not the judges of men, but love your brothers and sisters, and find ways to reach out to them in common goals and aspirations. Where there is love in common, the divisions of creed will melt away and reveal the true nature of man’s eternal destiny -- one of unity in purpose, to be perfect as the Father is perfect."
