Our third week at the Blue Crab, saw us move the open mic from the
bar into the
restaurant – and, for most of the night, we filled the room. In total, we had over 20 musicians play during the course of the evening – as Dot Nielson of Gramma’s Attic Promotions would say: “WOW!!!”
A wide range of styles were on show, even including a wandering sax solo
Here are just some of the performances from last night – shaky iPhone camerawork by yours truly while sitting at the sound-desk!
Tim Quinn started us off in fine style:
And Noah Feldman was back to share one of his originals:
A new face to the Blue Crab Mic Attack!, Anna Lennard – who, for some reason, I got fixed in my head was called Rebecca (sorry, Anna!):
Talking of new, we were also pleased to host the debut of two young musicians, Nico & Gerard, who did a great job:
Cathy Yuhas debuted a couple of works in progress – IMHO good enough to share here:
And, if you looked carefully at that video, you’ll have seen Bob “the Bass” Mayfield who jammed with most of the performers last night at some point – here he is with the Ian and Dustin Meadows:
Here’s Mark and Dave (and Bob, of course) on one of the rare occasions when Dave wasn’t walking the room, sax-ing it up
[yes, he is Saxy and he knows it]
The Suiter family were back, with the last gig for a while featuring Carl (Dad) and James (Son), as James is heading down to Alabama this Friday – best of luck, James!
And, proving that they have the patience of saints, last up on the bill were Two Reasons:
Also appearing, though not video’d
[apologies, I only have so many hands]
John & Mike, Molly Bowers, Emiro and Jesse McKellan
[who does not play Gandalf in the Lord of the Rings trilogy :o]
and, of course, yours truly.
I’ll be taking the night off from the Blue Crab next week, but Noah Feldman has graciously agreed to host in my absence, so be there to see the Blue Crab Mic Attack! open mic – Wednesday, 7-11pm.
And, as always, if you’re an artist listed above who I’ve not linked, let me know where you’re at online – and, please, get yourself a Reverbnation account!
