I've been looking for songs to play at open mic tonight and had a thought flash through my mind. Smile Open Mic at the Magic Café. I won't be playing this one tonight so I'm going to let Marty play it instead. All are welcome. Have fun! Smile

Here's Marty:

I must say I wasn't expecting that speaking voice, I think that's the first I've heard it. Thank you, Marty. Who's next?

Goodness, not many volunteers. Quite unlike any other open mic I've attended- give a guy a mic and he'll sing all night, for real. Smile

I will be performing at an open mic here in Arnprior at East Side Mario's (bada boom, bada bing!) tomorrow night and plan to start with these 3 songs: (For now, I'll let Mr. Presley take it away, but I may be able to get some video of myself for you tomorrow. Smile)

There is video. I played 9 songs last night and the host filmed part of one of them. I have the file and will be posting here. Smile

As for the aforementioned trio of songs, I may be able get some at home takes of them soon. Thank you very much for your interest. Smile

The video is set to public, as is the page. It should be viewable to you even if you're not on facebook- at least facebook tells me so, and I was able to check and view it without logging in.

So you should be able to bypass any seeming obstacles they place to try to get you to join- Scroll past, click the x to close their ad, click "not now", etc.

If you're still having trouble, please let me know and I'll check with the individual who filmed it for me- I don't think he'd mind if I posted it on my channel.

I didn't post it on YouTube because I didn't film it. Anything I film will go up on my YouTube channel.

Thank you, both. Smile I appreciate your kind comments.

I can't be at open mic in town tonight- got a pretty sick kitty here. Been up with her around the clock with no emergency vet service in town over New Year's. But Indelible hung in and saw a vet this morning. After some fluids and meds she's home resting and is much improved. Will take some time to heal but she's working on it. Here's a video from just before I went to Vegas for WMS 33, in 2010:

Have you thought about doing some 1920s music since you have an interest in the decade?

Certainly. I perform public domain songs when I busk at the market, though a lot of the songs I do are older. Some Edwardian era ones in my repertoire and I like that decade very much. I've been wondering if there might be a twenties revival. If so, I'm ahead of the game since I've been making drop waist dresses the last few years. Smile My Dad was born in 1924, so the 20s have been on my radar, I'm finding, since he passed on in 2016. Thank you for asking.

Here's a pic of Del, before I was able to get her inside a few years ago, and another of her with her daughter, Blackberry, who led the way to the great INDOORS. Smile

20s is probably my favorite decade so the timing is good for me too. Been doing Charleston for a few years. And of course with work being a casual dress code I like dressing in old style suits on my days off.
