: "Cheryl Wheeler"
“From her albums you can tell that she is a gifted songwriter with a beautiful voice. From other people's comments about her you can learn that she is a natural story teller with a fantastic sense of humor. But until you see her in person, you never really believe what you've been told about her. Besides, almost half of the songs she does during her shows haven't been recorded! Cheryl's songs are often emotional portraits of people, leaving you with the impression that you know the characters. You find yourself being dragged into the song rather than standing outside and observing. Other songs by Cheryl are hilarious situation comedies” Jonathan's Ogunquit would like to thank Eastern Oil & Propane for their support with this concert!

Like Adele meets Diana Krall meets Bette Midler - sassy, smooth, intoxicating - and funny!
The Boston Globe says she's "Wicked exciting!"
The New York Times says she puts on "A spectacular evening of song and style."

And Steppin' Out Arts, NY says she has "A great voice, even better enthusiasm and an almost giddy delight at entertaining audiences."
But Bea Arthur really took the cake and honestly stunned Suede when she shouted from the crowd "Thank you for the greatest night of my life in an audience! You are #*!#ing incredible!!"
Need we say more? Come see why. You'll be glad you did.

When you think of “grassroots” and “down to Earth,” you don’t normally think of a movie star. You especially don't think of a movie star the caliber of Jeff Daniels. Yet that is exactly what Jeff has accomplished with his second CD Grandfather’s Hat. With the follow-up album to Live and Unplugged, Daniels has proven that he is not an actor who sings, but an accomplished singer/songwriter who’s musical talent does not require the support of his acting.
