|Mike Handelman and RL close us out with Stay Awhile|
This morning the Pope spoke to the UN. And then to Ground Zero….
Martin has a brilliant idea about a program we can do while his company is here in December. Concerning the roots of flamenco in the golden age of 15th century el Andaluz where Arab and Jewish, Spanish and gypsy cultures all converged. Would like to do it in December before Antigona reopens.
I’m treated to an hour of Alex Fry playing her music as she takes a break before heading to work.
I continue to puzzle about our two sisters and what to do with them. At least we’re working together with Reachout. I have to make sure that the sanctuary is completely empty during Open Mic. It’s making me anxious.
RL as always opens the night
followed by a comedy set by
who is a teacher in his day job. The first musician is pedal steel
guitar virtuoso Michael Pfeiffer
who has arranged some old standards like Blue Skies for his instrument. We’re
excited to learn that John Holland
has an upcoming gig at the Bitter End and that his Second Avenue song has been accepted
for a movie. Michael joins me on 3 original songs on his pedal steel.
with tuning but am loving this. Blues Man Mike Handelman is back with his own
interpretation of Aretha’s Respect
(along with a tip of the hat to Rodney Dangerfield).
again leaves the sound board to do a
set. Jessie and Jeremy share another original and a Dylan cover. They work
really well together. And have a gig coming up at the Path in the Village.
And then Mike comes up to join RL on Stay Awhile and the night is over.
