|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.
Steve stays at the piano to back
up Joel on another improvisatory
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….
