Congratulations Geri X!

Geri X, local singer/songwriter well known throughout Tampa Bay hosted a CD Release show at the State Theater in St. Petersburg on Saturday January 17. This group is very special to me as the bass player, Greg Roteik is my brother and Geri is his girlfriend. Matt Bennett is the fabulous percussionist that completes their trio. Their music is absolutely amazing and they play frequent shows locally in and around Tampa Bay. Their melodic guitar harmonies and soothing voices are PERFECT for any wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and/or dinner. I speak from personal experience as the group played my own wedding last October.

(As you can tell I am a very proud of their accomplishments!)

I was asked by my brother to take some shots at the show, and I put together this photo slideshow for them. Included in the video are "Stubborn Man" and "Kiss on Both Eyelids," both from their new album, Anthems of a Mended Heart which is now available in stores, on their website and online with I-Tunes and
