Soup to Nuts Live! a Success

The John Fonvielle Band's hour-long Soup to Nuts Live! concert in WHQR's listening room Nov. 19 was met with great enthusiasm by Wilmington music lovers. Singing to a studio audience of about 70 people, John earned a lot of new fans with a heartfelt performance of songs from Rodeo that was peppered with stories about origins and inspirations. Popular radio host George Scheibner MC'd the event, joking with the crowd and sharing anecdotes about John, a longtime acquaintance. The band members, looking classy against the exposed brick wall, brought their A game, with piano player Jim Ellis delivering an especially soulful Jackson Browne-esque intro to "The Devil is Dealing Again." (It is worth checking out his solo work in the usual online music haunts.) Jeff Reid, who recorded the album and mixed it with John at Reid Recording, busted out the melodica for "You Don't Know Me," and rocked the rhythm guitar with flair. Roger Cook, you are a great bass player — now get some kind of digital footprint so we can link to you properly!

The recording of John's Soup to Nuts Live!, complete with rousing standing ovation, will will be broadcast on Dec. 11 at 7 p.m. EST and Dec. 12 at 9 p.m. Tune in or stream it from WHQR's website!
