Shyre started off the night with a theatrical jazz/operatic pop set which wasn’t quite my thing but the crowd seemed to enjoy it. After Shyre came Camille Delean, who was the real star of the night. Camille had Forward Music Group roster musicians Tim Crabtree (bass) and Michael Feuerstack (guitar) on stage with her, as well as Marshall Bureau (drums). With no instruments in hand, she managed to captivate the audience with her beautiful voice and minimal stage banter. You can tell she is at ease with performing her songs which, have some impressive crescendos thanks to the backing musicians. Tim and Mike offered their voices on some backing harmonies during the night, and the set ended with the most appropriate song, "Tomorrow I Will Leave."

The Olympic Symphonium capped off the night with their magical harmonious tunes that are hard to not be completely enveloped in. They were very visibly having fun while switching instruments amongst themselves, taking turns on lead vocals, and offering comedic stage banter in between songs. Night one of HUFF was a real pleasure, and I look forward to more shows this week!
