Local talent jams, raises funds for seniors at Rogers Revue
The fourth annual Rogers Revue talent show drew another nice crowd on Friday, April 13, at Word of Peace Lutheran Church, enjoying 15 local musical acts performing in an event with proceeds going for senior citizens activities.
“Quarter to Three,” local foursome that gets together occasionally just to jam, was featured as they opened with five songs capped by a rousing edition of “Jackson.”
Others performing were singers Brianna Schulzetenberg, Eric and Kristina Trombley, Barbara Gruys, Kate Tripoli, and Mary Kline; pianists Logan and Owen Sabinash; Ashley Wiger on guitar; Keith and Eric Saxton on tenor and bari sax with Alison Saxton on piano; Bell Choir directed by Sahlen; Rogers Flute Choir directed by Dawn Saxton; and, new this year, Edie Vavrichek and the Accordian Band doing an Elvis medley.
Servicemen and women and their families were applauded and the crowd joined Gruys to sing “God Bless America.”
Organizer and master of ceremonies Harold Trombley said paid admission was 210, a little lower than hoped, probably due to an area-wide talent contest taking place in St. Michael.
