About Lisa Can’t Sing: Don’t let their name fool you, Lisa proves she CAN sing as her dynamic band delivers re-imagined classic tunes from the 80’s rockin’ originals. Lisa Can’t Sing has been blowing the roof off concert venues across our area with their sing-out-loud brand of retro rock ‘n roll, including the Arcadia Rock Fest, Taste of Portage, Wild Bull, Old Dog Tavern and State on the Street!
Lisa Can’t Sing has also shared the stage with national touring tribute bands, such as The Spazmatics, Who’s Bad, Led ZepAgain, Guns 4 Roses, Heart Alive and Almost Queen at the Kalamazoo State Theatre! From Pat Benatar, Blondie and Joan Jett to Def Leppard, Motley Crue and Quiet Riot, get ready for a foot-stomping, headbanging, good time with vocalist Lisa Drzick, guitarist Harry Phillips, bassist Deb VanDenBrink and drummer Dave Drzick!
About Jacqueline Tafoya: “When I began painting on rocks it was for fun, not for profit. When my eldest daughter, Lora, offered to sell them at the Blue Dolphin where she is a server, I was surprised when people actually spent their hard-earned money on my rocks. Lora’s encouragement and the support of Steve Stamos have given me a mission and purpose. I am a proud painter of rocks. Previously a proud painter of chairs. Previously a proud painter of murals. And so on.
Why rocks? Because they’re available and they hold still. Sometimes they even tell a story. My husband and I live on an island for 9 months a year. The island offers solitude, privacy, and rocks galore. I hold a rock in my hands and wonder about its antiquity. I look at its scars and crevices and think about my aging self, both of us shaped by our journey.”
