Quite a fine open mike on Sunday, and I’m glad I played and hung out.  Ansel showed up from Philly and went early, for a change, and did some great improves on Tennessee Waltz and the Adam’s Family tune. Mance channeled Robert Johnson, some new and emerging folks – always surprises – and topped off by a great set by Leon, who had a harmony love fest with the audience of musicians.  One of the nicest sets I’ve heard from the mighty Leon.  cool….


I had Steppin’ Out! vibes in my veins, so I opened with Them Poems from Mason Williams.  I had re-upped the night before with SO, and used ’em the next day, so they were fresh.  Future schtick.  I followed with the slow and intense Rodeo Rider, also from the night before.  A powerful and real song that hits close to home.  Jaime Brockett did it long ago and it still sticks.  I finished with Shoo That Fly with Ansel, and a good rockin’ tune, and a nice tune just to loosen up me and my friends. 


Some new folks in the door as audience and they walked away amazed, and, in deed it was.
