Kathryn Loomis & Co.- An Afternoon to Remember, Excerpt:
Kathryn Loomis & Co. is a collection of top-notch musicians that hails from the Central Coast. Kathryn is the leader and vocalist. Kathryn Loomis should be named Kathryn Luminous, because that’s what she was at our Sunday Session on May 29th at the Pismo Beach Veterans' Hall. Her confident and sultry vocals and her understated command of her back up musicians led to an amazing afternoon of jazz standard musical interpretation. This was the first time they graced our stage. Kathryn was classy and elegant in a full-length gown, recalling an earlier era of fashion. Her dress was complemented by an elaborate crystal necklace and her hair swept into a Gibson Girl updo. The band members all wore classic suits. . .
. . . Kathryn Loomis and Co. is an amazingly talented band, a real joy to watch, and great to dance to. Kathryn transports you to a time of long ago, a classy nightclub where you can fall in love. She is professional, charming, graceful, and extremely talented. She can enchant you in English, French, and Spanish. Her voice is confident, sultry, and sexy. She will bewitch you and capture your heart as she pours out one hit after another. After watching her you will be left with only one word, WOW! She will surely be invited back to future Basin Street Regulars Sunday Sessions or an upcoming Jazz Jubilee by the Sea!
The band: Darrell Voss: Drums, Ron McCarley: Saxophones, Becky McClaflin: Piano, Travis Harms: Bass.
