Making their first appearance in Loveland at St. Columban Church did not happen by accident. Joyce and Mike Bucci, local residents and St. Columban parishioners have attended several performances by NO PROMISES in the past.

“We first heard about them from Angie, the flute player from our St. Elizabeth Ann Seton choir group,” Joyce explained. “They performed at Good Shepherd and we saw them there. I liked it so much every year we would wait for their schedule to go up and try to find them somewhere.”

Joyce, who is something of a musician herself having played piano for the choir at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton before coming to St. Columban, made it a point to attend their performances as often as possible. Ultimately, after one of their performances, she made a personal connection. She doesn’t remember exactly how, but it led to her suggesting NO PROMISES come perform at St. Columban.

“I don’t know if I went to their website and said you need to come to St. Columban,” Joyce said. “He (Nat Comisar) had my phone number, so I must have given my phone number. I don’t remember if it was after one of their concerts or if it was on their website.”

Joyce Bucci says one way or the other she let them know she thought St. Columban would be a good place for them. The rest, as they say, is history. The ball started rolling, the message was passed on to St. Columban music director Mary Bellman and she coordinated with Nat Comisar to arrange the concert. Bucci is thrilled to see it all come together and have the opportunity to see them perform right here at St. Columban Church in Loveland, OH.

 “This group has a nice banter and they’re very entertaining with the audience,” Bucci said. “I really love their arrangements. I love the fun sounds they make as an a cappella group. They create amazing rhythm and percussion sounds vocally. The beautiful quality of their voices and the harmonies stand out. Usually a cappella groups have good harmonies and they definitely have that.”
