The Rotary Club of Reedsport’s community talent show The Coastal Douglas Has Talent!—will be held on Saturday, February 7, 2015 at 6 p.m. at the Pacific Auditorium, located at the Reedsport Community Charter School, 2260 Longwood Drive, Reedsport, OR 97467. Tickets are $5 and are available now at Umpqua Bank and Fullhart Insurance. Tickets will also be available at the door. The talent show starts at 6 pm, but the Name that Tune contest, sponsored by Umpqua Bank will start at 5:30 pm.

The 2014 winner, Megan Wood, will be back with an encore performance. Megan continues to be homeschooled and is now in her sophomore year. She sang a number of different songs, in a variety of genre this past summer as a contestant in the Bay Area teen Idol competition. Megan made it to the semi-finals. She also sings on a worship team at Hauser Community Church and with the North Bend High School choir. During this past year she added theater to her resume by performing in the New Artists fall production of The Guardian, in Bandon, Oregon.

A variety of performers auditioned to participate in the 2015 talent show, including a lot of first time participants. They include Craig Robinson, singer and songwriter; Jade Nanda, violinist; Emily and Michael Wilson, singing; Trevor Standiford, vocals and guitar; Amy Pedder, singer; Tyler Raymond, beatboxing; Devan Kutch, pianist; and Danny Ottinger, guitarist. The trio, “The Wayniacs” will be back to delight everyone with their music talent that involves a little humor.

Guest Performers have also been invited again this year. These guests are Rotarians and semi-professionals who are sprinkled throughout the show, but who do not distract from the audience vote for its best community performance. This year’s guest performers will include Terry Moore, pianist, Buck Tohill, guitarist, and John Stokes a Rotarian will also perform a guitar solo.

Of course, also returning by popular demand is Rotarian and television personality from Medford, Oregon, Kingsley Kelley who will once again serve as Master of Ceremonies.
