You’ll swear they’re baking gingerbread backstage as Vi Wickam’s Christmas music dances in your ears. Vi, and his band of merry music makers will delight you and spark your holiday cheer. With special guest Paul Chet, you will be smiling and singing along to your Christmas favorites. This Holiday Showcase features local Loveland resident and Nationally recognized fiddle player and vocalist, Vi Wickam. Classically trained, raised in a family with a long musical history, Vi’s music spans from classical to blues, and jazz to old-time fiddle. He has been featured on dozens of CD recordings and on stage throughout the United States.
Vi welcomes his friend, Paul Chet to join his band featuring local favorites, Jim Abraham – Bass, Bob Montgomery – Keyboard, Franklin Taggart – Guitar, Jephta Bernstein and her daughter Naomi – Violin, and Brent Hawley – Guitar and Mandolin. Last year, this group entertained a sold out crowd in Fort Collins, and played songs from Vi’s Christmas CD entitled “Twas the Night Before Christmas.” Paul Chet, a well-known country singer in both Colorado and Nashville, joins Vi to bring a combined 40-years of on-stage experience and unique vocal styles to the stage alongside some of Northern Colorado’s finest instrumental musicians.
