"valentine's day, day of THOR,14 feb 19. Leon Rich
whom hosts the Outpost 186 busker's night monthly
threw a birthday party for Sharon Crumrine of Ginger Ibex.
That lil space was packed! A lot of good music, let ME promote
ME, as I am wont to do.....put together an ad hoc band of Captain
Easychords on upright piano (he and I have many Cal CAli
gigs this year) and Birthday Gurl on flute and did "My first wife
done left me" and "driftin and driftin" off John Lee Hooker/Canned
Heat Hooker and Heat. Since the Outpost LOOKS like a store front
church, Leon hollered for some gospel! (well, I WUZ playin' the
devil's music....) so I decided on "aint nobody can do me like
jesus" by reverend James Cleveland and BIG kudos to the Captain
and the birthday gurl for following me! A friend of Leon's thought
I sang like Leon Russell (born 2 april!) BUT at the LAST out of
the blue benefit, I heard same comment from Glider's guitarist
Al! I try to sing Mississippi and come out Okie.....End of night
always a big beatle jam so "come Together"; EASY CHORDS as front
man, me-guitar, Leon-piano, birthday girl-flute. We had NEVER
played together but again, level of musicianship; a jam that worked
(twice!)...Next Leon Busker night at Outpost; Thor's Day,
14 March 19! see you there!"....
