Berks Jazz Fest 2018: Steve Cole & Friends

The popular Sunday morning brunch took place at the Inn At Reading, Steve Cole & Friends
featuring Nick Colionne and JJ Sansaverino on guitar, Kevin Whalum on vocals, Jay Rowe on keys, David Dyson on bass and Carl Anderson on drums were scheduled to appear. Unfortunately, Steve Cole got stuck due to a snow storm at an airport and was unable to perform, so Nick Colionne took over the show, along with all of Steve Cole's friends.

Nick Colionne took the opportunity and opened the show with some some of his own tracks, among them "The Journey", before Kevin Whalum did Bobby Caldwell's "What You Won't Do For Love" and a great rendition of Stevie Wonder's "Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing". JJ Sansaverino got one song, and tore the house down, before Nick Colionne did "When You Love Somebody" with an extended guitar solo done during a stroll into the audience, which was truly great. Other highlights were his rendition of "Rainy Night In Georgia", and Kevin Whalum's "Somebody, Somewhere". They wrapped up the show with their usual JB jam, having everybody on their feet.
