Many thanks to everyone who came out to Open Mic at The O and the Valley City Street Fair, including John, George, Jimmy, Chris, Daryl, Kim, Keith, Kathy, Phil, Karen, Sue, Martin, Margie, Len, Debbie, Jen, Sam, Charlie &, Jimmy !

A big thank you to Bruce Kowalski (keys, vocals), Ed Michaels (sax) and Chris DeMarco (trumpet) for a super job filling in with us last night. Also, kudos to Eric Jacobson for a great job on sound and lights.

Huge thanks to Darrin Clark (trombone) who came in all the way from Indiana to play with us!

Here’s what’s coming up this week…

Monday: I’ll host the Cleveland Music Club Open Mic at The Oriole Cafe’ (294 N. Rocky River Dr., Berea, 7-10pm)! This week’s guest host is Tim Hamman! We’ll provide the PA and a short host set, the rest is up to you! Come join us and show off your acoustic/vocal chops or just hang out and enjoy the music, great food and frosty cold drinks!

Friday: Shady Drive will appear at the North Royalton Home Days at the gazebo from 8:30-11:30pm!
As always, you can pick up a copy of Shady Drive’s CD, “Darker Shade Of Blue” at all of our live shows, on Amazon, CDBaby or iTunes! You can hear us often, along with other blues artists on WCSB FM Mondays at 9pm and on!

That’s all for now. We’ll talk soon…

Mike :c)
