This show was also a fond farewell to guitarist, Dennis Hodges, at his last show with us so he could devote his time to obtaining his Masters degree. We will miss you dearly, Dennis! We love you and thank you for your time, talent, humor, and wonderful character!
Honorary Consequences for this special holiday show: Darchelle Williams, and Samuel Hall.
Darchelle L. Williams has been singing professionally for over 29 years. She is the mother of 2 boys and grandmother of 11 but don’t get it twisted, she’s a YOUNG Grandmother!!! She has been described as Columbus’ Best Kept Secret because she has been the voice behind many commercials that have aired on radio and television but no one ever saw her face. Some of her commercials, to name a few, include Wendy’s, The Ohio Lottery, McDonald’s, Nationwide Insurance, Kroger, Warner Cable, Urban League, Atlas Butler, Rax, and King’s Island.
She has performed with such national greats as Alexander O’Neil, Roger Troutman (R.I.P.), Lonnie Liston Smith and Rodney McCoy. She was the opening act for The Real R & B Is Back concert and shared the stage with The Rude Boys, Silk, H-Town, Battlecatz and Men at Large in a musical tribute to Mr. Gerald Levert (may you rest in everlasting peace).
She was also part of the opening act for The Soulful Jazz concert and shared the stage with Norman Brown, Marion Meadows, Jeff Lorber and the legendary R&B crooner, Peabo Bryson. She has worked with some great local artists such as Dean Francis (R.I.P.), “The Governor” Greg Pearson, Teen Dream, Big Al, Earnest “Pepper” Reed (R.I.P.), Middle Child, Jeanette Williams, Bobby Floyd, Gene Walker, Mary McClendon, Arnette Howard and so many others.
For her, music is her love and life force. She says that it keeps her young and vibrant and she will continue to sing until the Lord takes her last breath.

A Columbus native, Sam Hall studied voice at the Interlochen Center for the Arts in Interlochen, MI and at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY before returning home to raise a family and “get a real job.” On a whim, last year he auditioned for Cincinnati Opera’s “Opera Idol” competition – and made the semi-finals. Since then, Sam has been singing around the state, with Dayton Opera, Opera Columbus, the Lancaster Festival, and Opera Project Columbus, where he is a board member. While opera is his specialty, Sam can croon with the best of them, and he’s really looking forward to trying out some different styles with the Consequences!
