Just Sayin’ to Harmonize Sat. Morning

The acoustic duo Just Sayin’ will be doing much more than talking when it brings its signature vocal harmonics to the Wildwood Farmers Market this Saturday, September 5, performing original songs and pop standards from across the decades.

Although Laurie Bay Oyer and Mike Tice have only performed together for a year, their voices naturally blend to produce smooth harmonies, with Tice providing the rhythmic guitar foundation.

“Versatility and a broad interest in music across the decades provide us with a repertoire that’s sure to bring a smile to the audience’s faces and bring back memories but to also have spark,” Oyer said. “We hope to reach people in a way that makes them think or enjoy a song a different way.”

Joining the pair on a few songs will be a guest artist, an up-and-coming 17-year-old singer named Lily, who also happens to be Oyer’s daughter. This mother and daughter pair have been performing together for 10 years, appearing on stages in venues as far-ranging as Boston, Chicago, St. Louis and Colorado.

Just Sayin'The group will be performing from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. at the market, 220 Plaza Drive, Wildwood MO.

Just Sayin’s music selections range from classic Irving Berlin tunes to the Grammy Award-winning songs of the Civil Wars, including songs by Joni Mitchell, Simon and Garfunkel, James Taylor, The Beatles and many more artists that comprise their eclectic songbook. Approximately half of the songs to be performed will be drawn from Tice’s compositions.

The name for the duo grew out of an uncanny habit, reflecting a similar outlook on life that Tice and Oyer discovered they shared once they began singing together on a more regular basis.

“One or both of us would end more than a few sentences with ‘just sayin’ in regular conversation, kind of as a joke,” Tice shared. “We thought it would make an interesting name for our duo.”

For Oyer, the name carries with it a slightly more irreverent connotation.

“As we rehearsed and performed, we found ourselves adding the phrase to statements we made that might have indicated we were speaking our mind or putting something on the table for discussion that might have more than one perspective,” she explained. “To us, it seems whimsical and somewhat sassy, but always said with a smile and raised eyebrows.”
