Friday night: Nonsense makes sense
Carrie Underwood sings birthday wishes for Garrett Goodwin.
Expect a special treat for the musical entertainment on Friday night at the St. Raphael Festival. Nonsense might be a hastily assembled band but some of its members are no slouches when it comes to professional entertainment.
Take, for instance, Garrett Goodwin, who has come on the musical scene in both style and class. Garrett is the drummer for country singer-songwriter Carrie Underwood, multi-platinum selling recording artist, winner of several Grammy Awards, Billboard Music Awards and American Music Awards, Golden Globe Award nominee and two-time ACM Entertainer of the Year. At age 23, Garrett’s career includes live performances on Saturday Night Live, Jay Leno, The Grammy Awards, The American Music Awards, and many more.
And then there's Charlie Goddard, attorney and former guitarist for Grammy-nominated artist, Sonic Flood/Jeff Deyo from 2003 to 2005 and two-time Dove winning band, By the Tree from 2001 to 2003, with four No. 1 radio hits and more than a million records sold worldwide. His musical career included performance tours in 14 countries and all states in the domestic United States. You can catch Charlie playing with Jeff Devo in this video.
Rounding out the band are attorneys David and Kim Salmon, St. Raphael parishioners, Gilbert Rodriguez and Erin Buchanan. They may be setting some sort of record in jurisprudence.
Nonsense will perform Friday night 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. in the Big Tent.
