Victor & Penny release second full-length album with two concerts

Two shows for kids of all ages are scheduled for Thanksgiving weekend in celebration of "Side By Side", the new album by Victor & Penny.

Jeff Freling and Erin McGrane, better known as the nationally touring Antique Pop duo Victor and Penny, release their second full-length album November 23 at a concert hosted by The Living Room Theatre, KCMO. The new album, titled “Side By Side” (Songs for Kids of All Ages) features smooth, deft guitar work, engaging duet vocals and a fiery ukulele rhythm section. Several Kansas City musicians appear as guest artists on the record including Nate Hofer, Rick Willoughby, Christian Hankel and Kyle Dahlquist. The sophisticated musicianship will please discerning fans of the early jazz era and the themes are decidedly positive, appealing to people of all ages including children.

Two performances are scheduled to celebrate the release over the Thanksgiving weekend, one of them being a children’s show that will also be a benefit for Academie Layfayette. Special guests will appear at both shows to join Freling and McGrane on stage. After their Escape to Create Artist Residency in Seaside, FL in February 2013, the duo plans to resume touring the USA in support of “Side By Side” (Songs for Kids of All Ages).
