Many a great moment at tonights gig at Cellar 55 in Vancouver. But none sweeter than it’s final moments. Our last song was the classic by Leonard Cohen, “Hallelujah.” A request. With our acoustic guitars, Jeff Haagenson sat upon a stool adding some tasty licks, while I led the song. With each passing chorus it got sweeter and sweeter. The reason? We had a group of choir members from Columbia Presbyterian Church in attendance. By the time we reached the final chorus we went a cappella and it sounded the sweetest of all. One of those sacred moments in a performance that was serendipitous.
My appreciation to Jeff Haagenson for his talent and friendship. To the staff at Cellar 55, you treat musician’s with respect and you pay us. Thank you.
I’ll keep you informed the next time I’ll be at Cellar 55. No doubt, Jeff and I will return together.
Chris & Jeff, you guys deserve a larger audience than you had last evening, but I feel very privileged to have been present, and the small space made for a special and intimate listening experience. And thanks for inviting your audience to sing along on some numbers. It was fun to harmonize. And the staff & clientele at Cellar 55 were really enjoyable, as well. Fun evening! Thanks again.
