Two years ago, Vi Wickam played the CD release concert for his Christmas album, ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas at Avogadro’s Number. He had so much fun that we decided to make it an annual event.
You’ll swear they’re baking gingerbread backstage as Vi Wickam’s Christmas music dances in your ears. Vi, and his band of merry music makers will delight you and spark your holiday cheer. With special guests Paul Chet and Danielle Ate the Sandwich, you will be smiling and singing along to your Christmas favorites. This Holiday Showcase features local Loveland resident and Nationally recognized fiddle player and vocalist, Vi Wickam. Classically trained, raised in a family with a long musical history, Vi’s music spans from classical to blues, and jazz to old-time fiddle. He has been featured on dozens of CD recordings and on stage throughout the United States.
Vi welcomes his friends, Paul Chet and Danielle Ate the Sandwich to join his band featuring local favorites, Jim Abraham – Bass, Bob Montgomery – Keyboard, Franklin Taggart – Guitar, and Brent Hawley – Guitar and Mandolin. Last year, this group entertained a sold-out crowd in Fort Collins, and played songs from Vi’s Christmas CD entitled “Twas the Night Before Christmas.” Together, Paul Chet, a well-known country singer in both Colorado and Nashville, and Danielle Ate the Sandwich, a singer songwriter Internet sensation bring their amazing and unique vocal styles to the stage alongside some of Northern Colorado’s finest instrumental musicians.
