"Better Days"

-"Better Days"- the new CD from Halfway Home

is now available. You will have chance to buy a copy on Saturday night at Areopagitica Bookstore at 3510 North High Street. It's about a block north of Oakland Park Ave. This is a good chance to be one of the first to purchase a future sort after CD. When they are the most sort after band in the country you will be able to say. "I knew them when they played for beer." Patti and Renilda

I had to work last Thursday up in Cleveland so the running of the Stagecoach Open Mic was left to Jeff Hartley and a very good job he did by the sound of it. He did have problems with one of the regulars, Bob being the known trouble maker that he is wanted to do a three hour set. Jeff got him into a step over leg lock and Bob and Ralf did four songs. They did not realize Jeff has a black belt in origami.

I took a trip down to the Stagecoach on Saturday night to listen to Sweet Sixteen a jazz based group that includes Thursday night sound man Dave Rainey. Yes they were as good as I was told they were. I am surprised this band are not getting more work up in Cow Town.
