As the COVID-19 pandemic surges throughout the region, the City of West Hollywood is continuing with a virtual presentation of its WeHo Sounds Free Concert Series. WeHo Sounds will take place on select Tuesday evenings at 7 p.m. at www.weho.org/wehosounds during the first two months of 2022. Experience Winter evenings filled with music.
THE BANDIT & THE QUEEN
The Concert Series begins on Tuesday, January 25, 2022 at 7 p.m. with The Bandit and The Queen. Cody Belew and Hannah Blaylock are both top-tier Nashville vocalists and their combined resumes include four major national tours opening for Grammy-award winning country artists Little Big Town, Blake Shelton, Reba McEntire, and Rascal Flatts. They have also performed on the Grand Ole Opry more than 25 times, have Top 20 country radio hits, have been Grammy-nominated for their songwriting, and have made it to the Top 7 on The Voice. Their influences range from classic country to mountain soul to Texas two-step. This duo will give you all the best parts of the music you love wrapped in one velvet swank coach with fringe on top.
Gregory Allison will perform on Tuesday, February 8, 2022 at 7 p.m. Gregory Allison creates, with a single violin, a sound that travels across great landscapes. He brings the sensibility of a film composer into a live and intimate setting. His training in South Indian Classical music brings a melodic fluency and emotional fire to his compositions, while his Western Classical training is apparent in the wide sonic palette he creates. His violin goes from intimate weeping to orchestral soundscapes, carrying the listener on a journey all the way.
The Concert Series finale on Friday, February 22, 2022 at 7 p.m. will feature Charged Particles. Celebrating their 29th anniversary this year, Charged Particles is a trio that plays funky Latin jazz, as well as creative arrangements of jazz standards. They’ve played hundreds of concerts, festivals, and clubs across the U.S. and abroad and have released three CDs that have received airplay on more than 100 radio stations, as well as NPR’s All Things Considered. Reviewers have said: “An electrifying, push-the-limits performance style…a tight and enormously talented trio.” (JazzTimes Magazine); and “Charged Particles is definitely dazzling.” (Jazz & Blues Report).
