Got the call from Ron to head up to the fine Monday Night Open Mike run by Doug and Eric at the Union Street club. Good to see Denny and his acoustic bass, Stan, Danielle, Trainwreck and assorted fools and misfits. We got there before 7 but sign up is on line so we got late slots. I’m not used to that. Oh, well.
I did a good set of Jimmie Rodger’s ‘Mother, the Queen of my Heart’, and ‘Jones, Oh, Jones’, the former unknown to CT ears, and the latter, an obscure favorite. Good stuff, good exercise.
My bestest friend, Ron played in front of me (for a change) and is working out some kinks, and working on some new songs for his date at Roaring Brook. We’ve been sharing some heavy dues…..
To Saybrook and PA tomorrow. The road goes on – just have to get an oil change every once in a while.
