"Mason Valley News, January, 2019"

Concert Review, January 26, 2019 Concert at the Yerington Theater for the Arts, Yerington, NV.

“Ladies and gentlemen, the Sierra Sweethearts,” announced the EmCee at this beautifully restored concert hall. The band comes onto the stage, attired in snappy red costumes, and play an acoustic bass guitar, banjo and violin.

The violinist fingers the neck of the instrument and slides the bow with such vigor, she all but dances while she plays. She can make the instrument purr or shriek and slips in and out of vocal arrangements with an easy finesse. I have forgotten how exciting live entertainment can be. I’ve performed, and I’ve also been in the audience, and the adrenaline rush between entertainer and audience can be palpable.

Forgive me, but talent is a pearl, a look into the world of inspiration. This group is well rehearsed, have marvelously packaged material and know how to involve an audience. Imagine all this in downtown Yerington!

After doing a poignant original number about the death of a loved one, they tell us they don’t want to leave us in the dumps, so they do a novelty tune that gets the crowd laughing out loud. Of course, the audience claps and sings right along with the fun of the song, and the Sierra Sweethearts strike home.
