**Fireworks at 9:30 pm!**
Entertainment Stage6:30 pm: Andriana Chobot
"Armed with an expressive alto", Andriana Chobot, a “theatrical voice that likely owes some debt to the emotionally forthright work of Rufus Wainwright and Sarah McLachlan” (SEVEN DAYS), brings an eclectic mix of pop-rock-indie-folk, with a touch of jazz, that immerses the listener into an original soundscape. Whether it's just her solo, delivering an electronic piano centered performance, or equipped with her band of local talent, she delivers renditions ranging in upbeat originals, covers and cool, ethereal ballads, with "fluttering piano...one very reminiscent of Imogen Heap, among others." The occasional dueling pianist, Andriana Chobot recently premiered her new video to her latest single "Like It's the Last Time," which teases her upcoming first full length album, coming very soon.
8:30 pm, with a 2nd set following the fireworks: Kat Wright
Kat Wright, whose voice is both sultry and dynamic, delicate yet powerful; gritty but highly emotive and nuanced, has been described as “a young Bonnie Raitt meets Amy Winehouse”. Add to that voice enough stage presence to tame lions, and the combination of feline femininity proves immediately enchanting. There’s soul flowing in and out of her rock ‘n’ roll with a serpentine seduction. Some of soul music’s sweet, grand dames belt, shout, seethe, and succumb, while Wright sings gently like a heartache’s apology. It’s funky in spots and beautiful all over. And it hurts a little … like it should.
