It seems local country entertainers Jim & Cindy Dixon have been having an identity crisis. Sometimes billed as Dixon, Dixon and Company or Dixon and the Company Band, this problem with their identity came to a head on Saturday night, but in a funny way. Jim and Cindy spend a lot of time at various jams and other events in addition to their concert schedule. On Saturday, they came out to the Hideaway Restaurant in Langton, Ont., as Don and Sharon Brinn hosted an evening of karaoke. Sometimes it got a little silly, but it was a lot of fun. At one point Jim and Cindy performed, well actually lip-synced to one of their own recordings--but Jim was dressed liked Cindy and did her part in the song while Cindy dressed as Jim and did his part of the song. Like I said, silly but fun.
Yesterday, they got a bit more serious as they performed an afternoon show at the CAW Hall in Woodstock, Ont., and recorded the performance for another live album (their third live album, I believe) which will probably be released next year. Next week, Jim and Cindy leave for their annual winter in Texas but they have one more show scheduled for this Friday in Delaware at the Legion. If you get a chance, get out and support live, local music and wish them well...if you can tell which one is which!
