Order Long Time Comin’ (Hard Copy)
Vi’s music is rooted in tradition, but not buried in the past. It’s innovative, eclectic, and fun. Long Time Comin’ features a new spin on traditional tunes with fresh takes on modern favorites. On the CD, which features nationally recognized Jazz vocalist Mandy Harvey, you’ll find a little bit o’ swing, a little more funk, beautiful ballads, and some down and dirty blues (NOW with MORE COWBELL!). Fortunately, the album is a lot more cohesive than this disjointed press release makes it sound.
AS SEEN ON TV! VI Wickam is an accomplished fiddler who has won contests all over the United States. Vi is a composer, songwriter, and he even sings. He’s from a musical family; the Wickam Family Band played all around Northern Colorado, including 3 years as the house band on the nationally syndicated but now retired Blinky’s Fun Club. Vi is an entertaining and engaging performer. Long Time Comin’ features a cast of expert musicians: Brent Hawley on knock-your-socks-off acoustic guitar, Jim Abraham’s toenail-singeing electric bass, and Chris Beers’ tasty drummin’. The siren voices of Mandy Harvey, Kristianne Gale, and Kimberly Schug add polish and will melt you in your seat.
Long Time Comin’ will be released at a family-friendly and awesome party at Avogadro’s Number (http://www.avogadros.com/) in Fort Collins, Colorado on March 25, 2011 at 8:00PM.
