Had a great time hosting the Open Mic at the Java Good last night. Wonderful performances, originals and covers, by Bob Grover, Alyssa D., Ike from KU (shown here on the left), Phil Stahl ... A couple of spontaneous duos - A fun jazzy spontaneous duo with myself and Ike on "Moondance", scat included! ... and myself and a customer on the beautiful "Ooh Ooh Child" ... Nice conversation and stories with Bob, Alyssa, Ike, Cathy Sweeney, Sue, Phil ... An evening of good music, spirit, and warmth.
We're looking for another venue to continue the "All Ages, Original Compositions and Live Collaboration Encouraged, Music and Spoken Word Open Mic Extravaganza!" Heartfelt thanks to all the performers, especially the songwriters and the young performers, listeners, and the Java Good for a nice and successful run there.
