Last night Blues Musicians gathered at Black & Blue in Easton, Pennsylvania. The Todd Wolfe / Rob Fraser Blues Jam lives on!
The first night at a new venue is always a bit shaky. Fortunately, there’s a wide ledge for the paintings to dry on (somewhat safely). The tables are terribly small. I might switch to working in a large sketchbook instead of dip pen and tube watercolors.
Less than twenty blocks away from Larry Holmes Ringside Restaurant, it is a different crowd. I like variety and new inspiration. I also like the healthier food and better ales. I don’t, however, like the higher prices. There is a trade off in every choice.
It was a great night. Four lovely ladies crammed around a tiny, round table, laughing and enjoying the music. What could be better?
