A chilly Sunday night at Godfrey’s, where I was to emcee the open mike. This cold’s got me low so I played the opener and handed off to Leon. I mentioned that Ron and I had discussed how the “two song open mike” in CT really gets your chops together, and how one has to hit the stage “on”. I related how Ron benefited from that practice when he played at the CT Blues Championships. Viva la open mike!
