Frank Seamans Departing Legacy Five

September 16, 2009 By: Aaron Category: Legacy Five, SG Artists, SG Industry News, SG Music

Averyfineline has confirmed with the L5 office that Frank Seamans is leaving Legacy Five, but only after a new tenor is found. This is probably due to the health situation with his son, Frank Jr.

More thoughts on this when I do my report of tonight’s NQC. Coincidentally, L5 is on mainstage tonight, hopefully singing some songs off their just-released “Just Stand” project.

NQC 2009: Tuesday Night

September 16, 2009 By: Aaron Category: Gold City, NQC 2009, SG Artists, SG Music, The Isaacs, The Perrys

Another night of NQC 2009 has come and gone. Some thoughts on tonight:

1. Maybe The Perrys just “make you feel” when they sing, but no one can deny that The Perrys singing “If You Knew Him” was probably the most powerful moment of the night. The place was on its feet at the end of the second verse and it never let up after that.

2. The Isaacs should have done their “almost a cappella” thing a long time ago. The a cappella tune they did tonight brought the house down.

3. More sound issues, unfortunately. Instead of turned off mics, tonight it was mics that popped, sizzled. and screeched all over the place. Can we go a night without issue?

Anything else? Feel free to comment.

As an added bonus, here’s the first song of Gold City’s set last night.

Update: Well, never mind about the video. The user pulled them off of Youtube.
