We held our first annual Talent Show last Friday after work for a small, but adoring crowd. Sock It to Me employees shined like the talented Sockstars they are as they showed off their skills. Our acts featured: a drum line, singing, whistling, interpretive dancing, harmonica playing, and a dog wedding.
Our amazing host Ryan was also our judge and chose these winners:
Special Person Award: Josh!
For his enthusiastic participation in multiple acts Josh won the Special Person Award & a room temperature Blue Moon First Peach Ale. Josh wowed the entire audience with his bass, harmonica, and jumping skills (shown here).
Most Heart Award: The DB4s
The DB4s, consisting of Kisa, Tyson, Josh, Peter rocked the house with their show stopping number. Kisa, much like the Badass socks she wears, looks innocent enough, but knows how to bring the house down when she wants.
Best Costume Award: The Flackettes
The Flackettes, Emily and Kathryn, covered Roberta Flack’s “When You Smile” with their singing and whistling skills. But it was their feathered hats, yellow bow ties, and smiley face t-shirts that won them their prize. And, of course, their SITM knee high socks.
Funniest Award: The Wedding of Amber and Gomez
Though the marriage was short, the wedding was beautiful and hilarious. Audience member Sarah responded to “Speak now or forever hold your peace” with the revelation that she’d been sleeping with the groom for over a year. Though the guests laughed, the dissolution was swift, but not unexpected. Both Amber and Gomez have requested privacy during this difficult time, though they do appreciate your kind thoughts.
For their heartwarming and thoughtful interpretive dance to the TLC classic “Waterfalls”, Alex & SJ earned themselves the highest award possible. Their enthusiasm for the song was evident in their beautifully choreographed moves. They danced they way they live: with purpose, and often a little offbeat, proving that they can, at any point, drop it like it’s hot.
