What do the Clinton family, former president George Bush, and space aliens have in common? Jerry Fels, of Jerry fels and The Jerry Fels, presented some of his speculations to the audience at Decade Wednesday night.
No Magic’s Ben Sauder began set one of the evening hosted at the East Lawrence coffee house and music venue. Touring solo act Jerry Fels, from Pennsylvania, followed with a performance consisting of a one-man-band style folk act utilizing the harmonica, acoustic guitar, and tambourine kick drum. Fels’ lyrics were comprised of humorous presentation of political and pop culture icons such as the Clinton family, George Bush, and alien space travel. Following No Magic and Jerry Fels was Nate Henricks. The three artists stylistically complimented each other with perfect harmony; each presenting a unique take on singer/songwriter folk rock tunes.
