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.
