“If anyone never forgets his musical roots, it’s Darryl Edwards. Sure, he has his CD of original tunes. And he’ll sit at the keyboards and deliver his version of the “Star Spangled Banner.” Actually, that’s how Edwards became one of the acts committed to “1 Gospel Place,” an afternoon of praise music at the Continentals of Omega Boys and Girls Club on April 18. Edwards played the “Star Spangled Banner” at the dedication to the Philmore Graham Post Office on Admiral Callaghan Lane, honoring the late founder of Omega, when he was approached by Omega charter member and board president Gerald Gordy. “He asked me to represent in my own way some gospel songs,” said Edwards, adding that he is “in full support” of the north Vallejo youth club.”
“Edwards engages his audience with great warmth, and his welcoming spirit lights up any room. He is a musical genius with great versatility and enough charisma to fill volumes.”
“New Year’s is about friends, family and looking forward to 2015, Edwards said, eagerly awaiting his fourth annual Front Room appearance. “Good people — which makes for a festive crowd for a festive occasion,” Edwards said. “They’re fun and seem to be happy the year is over and the new year is coming in.” Edwards said every New Year’s Eve he’s played The Front Room has been packed. “And we’re looking forward to the same thing this year,” he said.”
““A lot of groups don’t use female singers,” Edwards said. “It adds a lot to the emotional parts of the songs. That to me, is a beautiful thing.””
“Local acts that include Cheating Daylight and the Used Blues Band of Vacaville and Vallejo's Darrell Edwards and Heavy Weather and Ronnie Stewart and the Caravan of All-Stars. "It's looking fantastic," Lopez said earlier this week. "It's pretty phenomenal the way the community is stepping up." At $15 admission, Lopez said 800 supporters are expected to the outdoor concert. Still, it's just as much about educating the public as it is about raising a few bucks. "The goal is awareness," Lopez said. "That's why we're keeping the cost low. We want everyone to be able to come and enjoy the day."”
