Welcome to the Area Code 860 Open Mike
The Buttonwood Tree
Bob Gotta's "First Thursday" May 13, 1999
Here's our illustrious host
Mr. Bob Gotta, himself
First up tonight:
Bill attracts all kinds of attention
The Amazing Cucaburr
his use of the language is out of the ordinary
If you listen
you can hear his message
He shows up and reminds us how important it is
now this guy is unreal
He's been around for a long time
He plays all over the place
Great Job, Eddy!
Oh, my Gosh!
Here comes Mr. Wild Man himself
Ron's gettin' gigs on his own
He wonders why we like so many pictures of him
That's because he has so many facets
Not to mention his guitar playing
Who wouldn't want to take pictures? (and learn ...)
And now, everybody's love
Cece is coming out with a CD in the Fall
Isn't she a beauty?
- and I'm not just talking about her voice!
Rich brings out the best
his studied artistry is exciting to hear
Always a great job
always sounds strong
Looks right, too
the Buck starts here
Bucky sings us a new song
umm - who's this?
here he is controlling the huge crowd of fans
(psst! it's Kent Aldrich)
Ohhhh, Yah ...
Here's some more of this great gathering
at The Buttonwood Tree
and now, Bob says, it's
see the glint in his eye?
Gil plays with an inimitable style
everybody wants to be just like Gil
look at the fingers move
and, of course, the feet
always the feet
this is the ONLY picture I have of Lani - can't wait to see her again and
(Hi, Lani - thanks for the e-mail)
(before I leave)
Karen Moore & Doug Johnson
This duo does good stuff
the mix is just right
such incredible talent
She sings to the sky
we hear her on the ground
Good job, Doug
You're the best!
I play for you
and enjoy myself
Well, there goes another excellent evening
See you all in the fall!
Thank you, Buttonwood Tree, for yet another great
"First Thursday" Open Mike
