Local singer/songwriters Walt Churchey and Jackie Kopco return with a performance of songs by legendary artists from the past 50 years including: Carole King, Cyndi Lauper, Sarah McLachlan, Jewel, Counting Crows, Adele, Elvis, Neil Diamond, Kris Kristofferson, Billy Joel, Johnny Cash, and the Beatles along with some of their own original songs.
The unexpected blending of the sweet sound of Jackie’s melodic voice with the rough-around-the-edges gruffness that Walt masterfully delivers is surprisingly fresh and delectable. The songs they bring to the stage are thoughtfully written and expertly delivered.
Three years and two albums later, Walt & Jackie continue to entertain with a broad mix of favorite songs of yesterday and today, as well as favorites from their own albums. Walt & Jackie will capture your listeners with their infectious spirit, memorable original tunes, and carefully selected cover songs. Loved by audiences big and small, young and old, Walt & Jackie gives every crowd their heart and soul packaged neatly in song.
2016 was a standout year for Walt & Jackie! They performed at the PPG Paints Arena for the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation Wine Gala fundraiser (and yes, some of the team was there!), made their first video (Steppin’ Stone!), had their first headlining gig at the Pasquerilla Performing Arts Center at UPJ, and were voted Simply the Best Entertainer in Johnstown by the readers of the Tribune Democrat.
