The Pavilion Restaurant at the
El Dorado Ranch hosted the San Felipe Has Talent
variety event this afternoon, organized and sponsored
by Las Amigas and their friends.
There was a terrific turnout
and a bushel of local talent exercised their theatrical
franchise by entertaining a full house with everything
from vocals to a classical violin solo.
Spanish love ballads mellowed
the crowd before a medley of Swiss/Bavarian accordion
tunes. Then came a steamy Blues piece followed by Christian
songs and an autoharp solo by Steve Lord. The mix was
varied and ranging.
Skits were sprinkled between
the vocalists. Then Melina California Fierros took the
stage and astounded the audience. The local dentist
expertly gave her violin a root canal but instead of
complain, the instrument sang like a nightengale.
It was nice to see Dottie Biely
rise to her feet and with the aid of a walker, give a
little soft-shoe accompaniment to one of the musical
On the whole the entertainment
was good and although the atmosphere seemed to lean
toward the religious, some of the singers certainly
knew how to use their diaphragms.
Cake and refreshments were provided
during intermission. The event went smoothly, thanks
to the many hours of planning and organizing. Hopefully
it will become a yearly ritual.
