Eirini Mercouri and Sarmbel Delight Hundreds at Clearwater, FL Show

June 1, 2005

Itís a rare opportunity when we actually get to give our readers a preview of a one-night-only concert in DC. Based on last weekendís show in Clearwater, this Fridayís concert headlined by Eirini Mercouri and Sarmbel may well just be one of the best shows to come through DC in a while, both for the chemistry that these entertainers had with the crowd but also because of the chemistry they had with each other.

While technically not on the marquee for this show, the opening act, simply known as Vanessa, nearly stole the show with just the right mix of engaging the crowd with just a small dose of aloofness to keep the guys in the audience fascinated and looking forward to her returns on stage with Sarmbel. Sarmbelís energy and non-threatening boy-bandish good looks had the women in the audience going nuts and drew the eveningís first crowd of women dancing on the tables. His dance moves were definitely the talk of the beach the next day. Mercouri herself took the stage and continued the trend of captivating the audience with a range of songs. Sarmbel joined her as Vanessa had joined him earlier for the occasional sensual ballad. For an amazing three hours the crowd was dancing, swaying, and singing along to both the artistís own songs and covers.
