One of many projects hatched in this town from the magic cocktail of COVID isolation and too much sun, “Soft Power FM” is a perfect example of the old adage “book the gig, and then you’ll HAVE to learn it.” Come see this piano trio perform the work of two of America’s greatest songwriters, Nilsson & Newman, plus a few others snuck in for giggles. Will they pull it off? You’ll be on the edge of your seat!
TIP THE BAND!!!! Venmo: @Martin-Lynds
