The Ponticellos at 142 Throckmorton Theatre

Cello, jazz and rock, oh my! The Ponticellos are all that and more. It was a joy to attend their latest concert at 142 Throckmorton Theatre in Mill Valley, CA.

You may recognize cellist Rebecca Roudman from some of my earlier galleries of Whitney Nichole. Rebecca has been joining Whitney on stage for over a year now, and it was great to get out and see her perform in her new Ponticellos outfit. All of the members of the group are world class, classically trained musicians, and if you get the chance to catch one of their upcoming performances, I highly suggest it. You’ll be entertained and amazed at the breadth of repertoire from the group. Countless guests join them on stage to perform original arrangements of popular tunes.

An amazingly diverse group, The Ponticellos are all current or past members of world class orchestras, and have traveled the world sharing their music. Check out more of The Ponticellos at http://theponticellos.com/.

Hamin Reed, Natalie Reneé and Whitney Nichole at El Rio

It was open mic night at El Rio in the Mission. Hamin Reed tipped it off with Trace Bundy-esque guitar stylings, Natalie Reneé came through with beautiful melodies and catchy bass licks, while Whitney Nichole showed off her amazing vocals to the crowd.
