...including TWO Birthday celebrants (one 40 and one 60)
plus the Glorious Return of our dear friend, bassist Wayne Munzy!
regular at Melange named John celebrated his 40th B'day with us. Soul
Instigators band members and many other folks signed the Card that his lady brought around.
Fine vocalist Bridget Taylor celebrated her 60th Birthday with us, singing lead and backup with a number of other performers. Bridget brought her British-born friend Adrian, who's indeed an outstanding performer, singing and playing guitar and bass
and generating a great energy level! ~ It was a joyous surprise for us all when
our dear friend and bassist Wayne Munzy walked in the door, as normally a
family commitment prevents Wayne from joining us on Wednesday evenings.
It was a treat to be able to perform the Soul Ballad "A Love To Last A Lifetime
Long" which appears on both my CDs, thanks to Rob Ross providing his Fender
Jazz Bass for Wayne to play, and Rob found it very inspiring to see a real rock-
solid pro playing bass after hearing so much about him from myself and others.
With the many and varied guests plus host Scar-Bro Pete and myself doing
covers and originals, the music went on 'non-stop' and except for a very brief break, I was on-stage for four hours "plus", yet was not tired, even at 'tear-down'
time and afterwards conversing with Bridget and Wayne -- it was all GREAT FUN! Wednesday's TapinJam at Melange just keeps getting 'bigger and better'!
