Victor & Penny
Skyflight Productions presents an evening with Victor & Penny on Saturday March 16, 2013 at The Albert S George Youth Center at Barnesville Memorial Park in Barnesville, OH. Victor & Penny is a KC and Chicago born duo singing music they call Antique Pop on ukulele and a lovely old guitar. With characteristic charm and good humor, they bring a fresh twist to music of the early 20th century, unique arrangements of modern tunes as well as clever original songs. Victor & Penny impress and delight audiences with their infectious energy and deft and oft-surprising jazz guitar licks anchored by a one-ukuele rhythm section. The duo is touring the USA in 2012 having traveled nearly 18,000 miles to date.
Victor & Penny is Jeff Freling and Erin McGrane.
Erin has been an active performing artist in the KC arts and music scene for many years. Erin is a film, theater and commercial actress; a musician and songwriter; and a co-host of the TV program CINEMAKC. Most notably, Erin appeared in the Emmy-winning web series THE UNREAL HOUSEWIVES OF KANSAS CITY and in the Oscar-nominated film, UP IN THE AIR alongside George Clooney. Look for Erin this year in the award-winning thriller feature film NAILBITER. As chanteuse Ruby Falls, she fronts the cabaret act Alacartoona who was awarded a 2009 Inspiration Grant from the Arts Council of Metropolitan Kansas City. Erin was honored in KC Magazine's 2012 "The 100": People who make Life Better in KC. She is proud to say she mis-spent her youth singing in a rock band.
Jeff, originally from Kansas City, called Chicago home for the last 16 years where he performed regularly with Blue Man Group, Tributosaurus, Mar Caribe, the Tom Waits tribute band B1G T1ME, and has performed alongside Doug Gillard (Guided By Voices). He began furiously studying the guitar at the age of 10 when he first heard Jimmy Page's guitar solo on "Whole Lotta Love" and has considered himself a guitar geek ever since. In the late 80s and early 90s Jeff was the guitarist and co-songwriter for two of KCs favorite bands: The Mongol Beach Party and Grumpy. He studied at the Conservatory at UMKC and at the Berklee School of music in Boston.
