Sunday was a fantastic day at the Savoy, the Metaverse's premier Jazz and Blues club! There had been a whole host of DJs all day; I was able to get there to see the end of DJ Hy's show and then enjoyed DJ Crighton. Then it was DJ Isobela's turn and I helped with her show (Portcia had sent some awesome notices for His Hyness!) DJ Isobela spun hits from the Trans-Siberian Orchestra as well as seasonal and Celtic favorites.
Next up was the wonderful Nina Brandenberg and her amazing voice singing holiday favorites. We had heard her regular show just the night before, so her Christmas show was a double treat for us. Tonight Aeryn accompanied her on piano for the first part of the show, and then Heath Elvehjem took the ivories and backed Nina up for the rest of her show!
When Nina finished Heath played an amazing mixture of traditional Christmas tunes and laid back numbers to celebrate the joy of season. Aianna read The Grinch during Heath's interlude. It was so nice to have Heath and the fans of his that we know together with our Savoy friends; there were even some Glammers there! Mack was there for a good while, and I saw Case show up during the reading, but I couldn't see through the crowd if they actually danced together like they were threatening to or not.
Isobela had brought Heath to the Savoy to play as a Christmas gift to me. I am so lucky. Christmas Jazz and Blues at the Savoy... lots of good stuff on the ice... under the stars... in the snow... by the twinkling lights of the trees... Life doesn't get any better than this.
