Goodbye CJ

CJ our server at Papa Joe's is heading for Texas to be with her husband who is in the Army. A party was held to say goodbye and the place was packed with standing room only. That is how well thought of she is. As well as various gifts she received $420 from a collection.

CJ has been a fixture for the Open Mic from the day we started. Always a shining light the place will be dull without her. As well as being our server she played saxophone regularly with Bob and Ralph fondly known as The Elderly Brothers. Below is a video by Tom Harker of her farewell.

CJ I will miss you more then you know, it has been like having a second daughter around.

A good place to be at the weekend.

"Charlie, Teresa, and Friends". We are filling a slot at Espresso Yourself on the Memorial Day weekend. Here are the details:

Charlie, Teresa, and Friends are playing at Espresso Yourself Music Cafe, 50 W. Olentangy St., Powell, OH, on Saturday, May 29, 2010, at 6:30-8:00 pm. The venue is 15 min from Route 315 and North Broadway ( EYMC has a nice stage, sandwiches, coffee, tea, stained glass, comfy leather furniture, and good music. Rumor has it that James Taylor and Carole King are coming to town a day early to check out the Powell scene, so there could even be a star sighting. The usual suspects will be on hand: Charlie Flowers and Teresa Schleifer both on acoustic guitar and vocals, joined by Patrick Casey (djembe, accordion), Maury Falkoff (mandolin, dobro), Renilda Marshall (bass guitar), Rebecca Stansbury (fiddle), and Brian Szuch (electric guitar). Sure hope you can make it!

The Hard Tackers at Walleye Festival

The Hard Tackers will be performing on Saturday at the Port Clinton Walleye Festival up on the Lake. If you are around say hello.

Folk Society Concert

Saturday night at the Book Store. Not sure who is playing but worth a visit.
