It’s Two in a Row for B-Town in “Unexpected Idol” TryoutsMay 7th, 2009 by michael c. moore
Bremerton was on the airwaves from Seattle for the second straight morning, as another Kitsap performer auditioned on KZOK‘s Bob Rivers Show in the “Unexpected Idol” contest.
Thursday morning, Bremerton school teacher Natalie Poss (West Hills Elementary School) got her turn to audition for a spot singing with Spike and the Impalers at a May 29 show at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma. She sand a slightly lounged-up version of Procol Harum‘s classic “A Whiter Shade of Pale,” accompanying herself on keyboard.
Wednesday, Wreckin’ Machine singer Nicole (“Deville”) Pike performed Ted Nugent’s “Stranglehold,” with B-Town rockabilly stalwart James Hunnicutt backing her on acoustic guitar.
Winners get to sing with KZOK’s house band, led by Spike O’Neill, at the May 29 concert, and be considered for future gigs as “Spike-ette” backup singers.
By the way …
Poss’ song choice, “A Whiter Shade of Pale,” is among the most-covered songs in rock history, and — according to the BBC — is the song most played in public places in the United Kingdom since 1967.
