It was a fantastic show - full of energy and Angelique's special warmth. She is a ball of energy with an incredible voice and a knack for including her audience in the joy her music brings. Her voice is clear and sharp and strong and her repertoire full of high energy, upbeat music.
SOPAC was a special surprise - intimate, comfortable, a good sound system and acoustics and although iI drove, it's literally AT the train station and an easy commute from Manhattan. Great sports bar/Italian place on the corner for a drink and a bite before or after a show.
