KANSAS CITY SUNDAY AFTERNOON: VICTOR & PENNY @ KEMPER MUSEUM!!!



In a charming performance just a few moments ago Victor And Penny played to an enthusiastic crowd at Kansas City's Kemper Museum. It was a brief reminder that this town sometimes offers really nice moments in unique spaces for locals to enjoy.

A quick description of the band:

"Victor & Penny is a Kansas City based duo singing music they call Antique Pop on ukulele and a lovely old guitar. With characteristic charm and good humor, they bring a fresh twist to music of the early 20th century, unique arrangements of modern tunes as well as clever original songs."



Victor & Penny is comprised of Jeff Freling and Erin McGrane along with a rotating cast of supporting players.



The crowd seemed to appreciate brief bits of storytelling that accompanied each song.



Mr. Freling is a capable performer but Erin McGrane is radiant and really one of the most brilliant female performers working Kansas City right now.



A crowd of about 200 Kemper Museum patrons gathered in the atrium to listen to the trio.



Victor & Penny spend a great deal of their time touring but now enter into a string of Kansas City performances that will last a couple of weeks. However, this setting beyond the local bar scene offered an exceptional opportunity to get a more intimate look at the upstart local band and their storytelling skill.



Check the Victor & Penny calender for upcoming dates.

Victor and Penny, Tony. Not VICTORY and Penny.

I understand English is your second language, but even the dead tree media you rail against doesn't fuck up as consistently as you. Spelling still counts for something.

That's what it says. 5:39 making shit up.

And for the record. Dead Tree Media makes just as many mistakes.

@5:39 - Somebody who doesn't have a dead tree media job anymore.

Or an old columnist that was demoted or fired.

It was "Victory" three hours ago. T gets credit for fixing his mistake. On the other hand, had he not screwed up in the first place, there wouldn't be a mistake to fix.

Grammar Nazi @ 7:16 mistakenly believes that people appreciate his work. Pathetic.

Good job, Tony! Nice to see something positive. You still need to omit a couple awful posts. Monitor the ugliness--other good bloggers do.

No-talent goofballs playing to a no-class audience, reported on by a no-green-card Italian pretending to be Mexican.

Who can't spell.

Hilarious!

Hate to leave a sour comment but it seems to me that any event that draws 200 people in a city this size is automatically NOT NEWSWORTHY!

That includes funerals for murdered ghetto gangstas, birds and squirrels that fall out of trees and get run over by cars, muggings, purse snatches, small 'smell of gas' evacuations after JJ's... and most anything the Kansas City City Council proposes.

The only thing more boring and agonizing would be an evening at stanfords. Either way, Id rather rip my cuticles and soak em in battery acid. That said, I'd give the dreamy doll with the uke the ol Jimmy crack corn if you know what Im sayin pal.

Tony -- thank you for mentioning our band!

To answer your questions:

1. Yes, I am single.
2. No, you don't have a chance with me.
3. Really, you don't.

XOXO --

Erin
