The 2nd day of Christmas: And we all join in...


Pat O, RL and Steve B Stayin' Awhile

The day after Christmas…Pat O checking up on  Jerry’s construction guys again. Our stalwart volunteer Thomas R in from Brooklyn to help out again, serving as David S’ right hand man…close up early so that I can meet family in Brooklyn before Open Mic….

The show is well underway when I arrive, Steve B at the piano.

Then Mandola Joe turns in his usual solid set

and Pat O follows finding more mysterious places with his electronic pedal board.

I ask Pat to stay up for my set and try one last time to deliver Robert Earl Keen’s Merry Christmas from the family…easier with Pat O on guitar. I bring Steve B up for Blue Christmas and with Marie in mind, close out with Blue eyes cryin’ in the rain.  And as always, RL’s Stay Awhile closes out the night. And we all join in….
