BZ Douglas Carnivale is everything that is right with the world.

So much fun had @ the BZ Douglas Carnivale this Saturday, not to mention that I emerged as the victor of the Rock Paper Scissors Tournament!
Got to lay down some lead over a few of BZ’s songs as well as play a few songs of my own, but enuf about me…

I dunno where BZ found this DB Reilly guy but his stuff was highly entertaining and moving I thought. At first he was just cracking me up and then I was struck by how profound many of his words were.

Really enjoyed Tim Warner’s set.. His jokes centering around the idea of Twitter & Facebook existing thru all points in time had me dying, particularly the one about Jesus’ last supper.

What about Michelle Leona? Pretty original ideas I thought, I think she is on the way to creating something pretty fine (and the more artists I come across with loop stations the more I wanna get one). I enjoyed her lyrics a lot, unique subject matter & delivery are the two things that really get me liking any vocal musical artist I get into.

I dunno about you, but I am in love with the Carnivale. There isn’t anything else like this out there that sustains the fun for so long. You check in @ 8PM and then it’s on till whenever you decide to leave, music, games, comedy, drinking, food… if you could just find a way to have a hockey game on you’d have just about everything I love BZ! Lolz…..

Looking forward to next month.

What a great Thursday Night ! !

Had a great time @ Lucky Jack’s last night.  Got to see Denitia Odigie for the first time which was a real treat, she knows how to rock that guitar, WOW! Realized that Sacha Chavez should definately be playing a song every week. Really enjoyed hearing Nicole He perform for the 1st time in quite a while, and what about Volce’s crazy vocal looping treats? Thanks to everyone who contibuted their energy to my performance of “Mr. Marbar Went Down To Texas” which I’m uploading to my site right now… Thank you MIC-CLUB for being the glistening pot of gold at the end of my work week!

I also had the pleasure of experiencing Alter Ego, the monthly break dancing and burlesque show hosted by John Murdock for the first time. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to play a song at the beginning and then be blown away by pretty much every performer. AMAZING! Count me in for this again next month…….

April 15 – Lucky Jack’s MicClub Feature Post Game Report

April 16, 2010 Leave a comment

Wow, what an excellent experience. MicClub was my first open mic experience in Manhattan, which took place just before Christmas of last year. Having lived in Connecticut all my life I was frustrated by a lack of ambitious musicians in my general vicinity. When I came to MicClub on that cold night back in December, I walked in and said to myself, “YES, this is what I’m looking for,” and so it was fantastic to have the opportunity to be the feature act there last night.
Despite having been fighting off a wicked sore throat for several days everyone was incredibly supportive despite my blatantly ailing voice, thank you so much everybody! and getting to play with Tem on ‘Past Behind’ was great, I feel better and better about that song every time I get to play it with him. Thanks for the Guinness and the cheering Frances! Next Thursday can’t come soon enough!
