However, the open mike, run by Larry Berenguel was exceptional as always. Larry is a great musician, and draws other great musicians (and me)
The bass player was a monster, the drummer has this really really cool Yamaha electronic drum kit ... I want one ...
Larry opened the show with some covers, with the drummer backing him up. He was great as always. I went next and played a short set.

After me was a woman who I feel I should recognize, but can't quite come up with why. She did various covers. She has a really lovely voice and a very cool 12 string. Of course I can't think of her name.
After her was Kyle, and the rest of his name escapes me. He is a pretty well known local blues-ish player who is incredible (and a very cool guy as well). Part of his set had a flute player, she was great as well.
I couldn't stay for the second rotation due to previous plans that I was informed of after I made these plans (it's a family thing)
I will go back though, probably in two weeks. Next week is getting ready for Mahtowa.
