There were 37 American Idols right here in Gresham last Saturday. The auditions for “East County’s Got Talent” were held at the Paesano Club from 9-3:00 p.m. and the quality of all who auditioned was over the top. Happy I didn’t have to be a judge – all the acts, singers, dancers, guitar players, and violinists, etc. were fabulous. Whether he wins or looses our personal favorite was our guitar playing Service Advisor Wayne Richardet. Thank you Wayne for taking the time to entertain the troops you will always be our Idol!
Representative Greg Matthews served as MC for the auditions and Dr. Ski will take over the task at the April show. They add humor, wit and a distinctive charm that exceeds Ryan Seacrest or that Simon guy. Thank you for giving your time to this project which many hope will become an annual event.
Now the reason for this rant – get tickets NOW!! We have some at Gresham Ford, $10 for Adults, $5 for children they will be more at the door. All proceeds go to support our Greater Gresham Area Chamber of Commerce, but the real reason to get a ticket is that it will be a “really good show” – better than productions that cost five times as much. Don’t miss it – April 23, 2010 at Mt. Hood Community College Theatre.
