Everyone knows that West Point is full of raw talent. Thanks to the Pilot Club, everyone who attended Legends; One Hit Wonders, Saturday night at the Community Counseling Services Gymnasium knows just how talented this town can be. From Scott Reed and Mia Vick doing a rendition of Michael Sambello’s “Maniac” that no one will ever forget, to Jessi Flynt’s version of Jeannie C. Riley’s “Harper Valley PTA” that shed a spotlight on the shenanigans of some of West Point’s most prominent citizens, to Monty Yates heartfelt “One in a Million.” A song made famous by Larry Graham. The crowd was rockin’ and rollin’ until the last verse of “Ice, Ice Baby” happily not performed by Vanilla Ice but by Paul Bennett, Bruce Johnson, Larry Stone, Mack Vaughn and Matt Warren.
Legends is now a West Point tradition brought to life by the West Point Pilot Club. Every year the Pilots round up local singers, musicians, dancers and people who just love to perform.
“We all have such a good time putting this together every year,” said Pilot Club member Linda Taylor. “Everyone has fun. From the singers and dancers to the people backstage. It’s a lot of work, but its also our biggest fundraiser of the year to allow the Pilots to launch projects that help the community.”
Twenty-two acts spanning from singers of love songs, pop songs, groups, dancers and people who had a lot of fun putting their own twist to novelty songs, every performer brought their very best to an appreciative audience. What will the Pilot Club do for Legends next year?
