West Vincent Elementary Concert!

The Chris & John Duo put on Rock Concert for WVES!

West Vincent Elementary School was celebrating it’s Red Ribbon Week, which is a week long tribute to being drug free.  This year’s Theme – “West Vincent Elementary School Rocks It Drug Free!” After getting the request to perform, I immediately called on superstar musician and good friend John Valerio to help me put on the show.

We both took a look at our respective song lists; scanning them for curse words, adult themes, and drug references and were able to come up with a 1 hour setlist to entertain the 500+ students of WVES.  (A lot of thanks goes out to John for making sure a majority of our songs were written while the core of our audience was alive.)  John and I took turns on vocals and I played a bunch of percussion (on my cajon) for John while he sang.  We both had a lot of fun and the audience was terrific, greeting us with a roaring applause after each song.   During the show we successfully got the “Say No to Drugs” message across to the children and towards the end, brought up a surprise guest (Music Teacher – Mrs. Silva) to help sing the song “Wonderwall.”   All in all it was a very successful concert.

Thanks to West Vincent Elementary School for having us!
We had a great time.
