Lake County Live! came to the Soper-Reese Community Theatre in Lakeport for our fifth show on Sunday, May 27.
Performers included Blind Spot, with Tom Nixon, Dave Gilmore, Martin Franusich, Doug Kauffman and Ed Johnson, along with Lindy Day and Kevin Village Stone. Thanks to them for some incredible music.
Thanks also to our Ladies of the Lake, who continue to amuse the audience with their exploits: Kris Andre, Pamela Bradley, Suna Flores and Vicky Parish Smith. Special guests this month were Judy Conard and Sarah Arndt. Thanks to both.
Thanks to Richard Smith and Suna Flores for helping co-write the program and to Mitchell Hauptman for being our unflappable announcer.
Special thanks to Nick Reid, our stage manager and Kris Veenstra, who assists him. Our show sounds so good thanks to the talents of Nick Biondo, sound engineer, and looks good thanks to lighting handled by Mike Adams.
The front of the house is always handled perfectly, so much appreciation to Andrea Adams, Vonn Faqua, Donna Herndon and, of course, Nancy Rhoades.
We couldn't do the show without the support of KPFZ 88.1 FM Lake County Community Radio, Lake County News at www.lakeconews.com and the Soper-Reese Community Theatre. Each donates much to make the show a success.
Finally, thanks to all of you who come to the theater and experience the show live, or listen on the air or on line at www.kpfz.org . Your response to our program has been wonderful.
These people and organizations believe as I do that there's much talent here in Lake County, and have permitted us to continue to bring that talent to you on the last Sunday of each month.
As an aside, a technical error delayed our live broadcast on May 27. Approximately the first 15 minutes of our show did not make it to the air. That problem has been identified and will not occur again. H
I hope you will join us in the theater on June 24 for the return of Pole Cat Rodeo and Lucas Swafford with Rama Deva.
Oh yes, the Ladies of the Lake will be there too, along with Sascha the dog, Mama Maybelle's, and a very good time.
You can also always send your ideas, comments and suggestions to email@example.com .
Thanks to everyone for continuing to support my dream of sharing local talent with our community on Lake County Live!
