Gretchen Richie: Journal

'It Could Happen To You' CD Release Party a Hit! - February 24, 2005

On a snowy, cold evening in Leonardtown, Maryland, Gretchen and her quartet performed songs from her brand new CD to a packed house at Cafe des Artistes. The owners of the cafe were put at ease the previous day when their survey of the people who'd reserved a table found a consensus of: "Anything short of a blizzard, we'll be there!" At 8:00pm the lights were lowered, candlelight flickered on the tables, and the magic began as Gretchen wove through the album's many moods, including bossa nova, swing, heartfelt ballads and a couple of bluesy numbers. The evening ended with a wildly enthusiastic standing ovation and fabulous raves.
