The November Words and Music held at Patti’s Thunder and hosted by Plumas Arts received tremendous support from both the listening and performing community.
The opening event in October perhaps caught patrons by surprise as it had a small but enthusiastic showing with just over 20 persons in attendance. With only three entertainers willing to showcase their talents that night, one was left wondering what the future held.
But the second gathering of the season Nov. 10 included a full audience and many willing performers.
Some credit may be due to local favorite headliners Benny, Penny and Dude. The crowd witnessed a terrific performance by the trio who are uniquely qualified to cover classic hits and favorites appreciated by music lovers of all ages.
Alex “Muddy” Smith was the featured artist for the opening show Oct. 13 and Plumas Arts promised to schedule a return engagement for the talented singer/songwriter so that more folks might get a crack at hearing the comedy and wide range of selections by the artist.
“Words and Music continues to be a coming together of artists of all abilities and all ages,” said Roxanne Valladao, executive director of Plumas Arts. “It is a great way to celebrate our community.”
