35Denton: Ella Minnow Sweet…
…and sassy, with a full crowd at Sweetwater Grill and Tavern at 10:30 p.m., the band Ella Minnow invited many with their playful sound.
The large band of seven: two female singers, one male singer and bass player, along with male keyboardist, two guitar players, and a drummer, had a unanimous vibe of passion and energy. Ella Minnow pleased the crowd and the long line of listeners outside the door with their smooth blend of male and female harmonies alongside their many exciting tempo changes.
Mirroring the crowd with their body language and enthusiasm, the band members drank and sang, inviting a welcoming experience for the audience to take part in. The well-versed crowd sang all the words alongside the band, closing their eyes and openly feeling the grooves of the gliding tunes.
Though the band wasn’t able to play all nine songs that they had planned, due to time constraints, the audience was left obviously satisfied with a cheering applaud.
