Pantones CAFE’s adult ensemble performed at the 25th Annual Sea Witch Festival in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, on Saturday, October 26, 2014.  This was the first appearance of a steel band at the festival and the audience really enjoyed their performance as there were  numerous  encores requests   from the audience.

The Rehoboth Beach “Sea Witch Festival” is an annual three day event  held over one weekend in October, and runs from Friday through Sunday . The event  draws over 100,000 locals and visitors from  nearby states.  The Saturday Sea Witch Parade featured, clowns, wizards and witches, cartoon characters, sea creatures, historical costumed figures,  and even costumed  babies in strollers. For those who did not participate in the parade there were family events featuring   all types of fun, games and activities for children and adults, with lots of food, arts and crafts and free entertainment throughout the day.  Many of the band members stayed overnight to take in parts of the festival the following day.  We certainly hope that we would be invited back next year.

Feet were tapping and heads were shakin’ as CAFE instructor and steel pan virtuoso
Victor Provost, along with his Synthesis Quartet, performed at Jazz Night on September
9th, co-sponsored by CAFE and the First United Methodist Church. Victor plays a
mean tenor pan and demonstrated his artistry as both an ensemble musician and
soloist, playing straight-ahead and contemporary jazz that brought the audience to its
feet. He was accompanied by Noble Jolley on keyboard, Nate Jolley on drums, and
Eric Wheeler on bass. If you missed the show, the next time you hear that Victor’s
playing…..RUN, don’t walk, to buy tickets. Those of us who heard him will be clamoring
to be first in line!

The Sept. 9th event inaugurated Jazz in Hyattsville, an exciting new opportunity to hear
outstanding live music in the intimate setting of FUMC’s Fellowship Hall. Proceeds from
ticket sales support constituent services at CAFE and FUMC. Stay posted for future Jazz Night events this fall!
