Coleen brings a smooth sophistication to the mix. Her smile, professional nature and warm tone are infectious. Coleen is equally apt at Sade to Pat Benatar, She also enjoys new arrangements of classics, like Britney Spears with a latin twist. U2 will fall in love with Coleen.
Nicole is a force to be reckoned with. Sweet and unassuming, and then she let’s loose. Amazing range and power round out this versatile performer. Stevie Nicks to Led Zeppelin, no problem. And oh my, wait till you hear her sing Joss Stone, unreal! A lovely presence all around, let Nic V. fill your ears and hearts with her song.
Whether acoustic or electric, Jim is frequently called upon whenerver Shades of Siver needs what Nigel Tufnel called “that extra little push over the cliff”. And of course, he’s ready to take lead for any song with the word drinkin’ in the title.
