That was a wonderful send-off.  Thanx to Doug for making it happen, and I hope it will all rise again in another place.

Thanks for coming out, everyone. Nice to leave the place on a high note. When I left, the place was empty, doors locked, and Matt (soundman) was the only person left, sitting at the piano, playing a tune. I think they probably had to carry him out with the piano.

yes, great show and a great show of support for Doug and the series he has put on over the years.  Hope a new location presents itself soon.  MK

Well, a good send off for the MC shows! I was very impressed by the level of all 3 artists and loved the collaborations. Eric was particularly different with the Jazzy/Bluesey riffing and sonar pinging sounds coming off that little SCCG 12-fret and those long fingers stretching over the body to reach up to the tiny frets for high notes was mind-boggling.

I took a workshop with Eric a while back.  He's way above my pay grade, but I still learned something.  I'll be there Sunday.

Wow! that was gorgeous!  I heard Eric had some chops for sure, I already knew that Doug did.  Hey Lisa, glad to host the fingig- that was really fun.  I definitely see that as a regular thing in my future with all those great folks.  Bummed to hear about Mission City closing- really an excellant venue to play and listen. Hope to see everybody this sunday to celebrate that place.  Just an odd coincidendence that MC is closing down on April 15th and I'm starting the coastside version of Acoustic Round Robin again on the same day over at Cameron's Inn and Pub( Half Moon Bay)with none other than ----Doug Young---- and Mark Lemaire.  MK

So sorry to hear that MC has succumbed to the San Jose Curse on Live Music Venues. What a shame. Well we surely enjoyed some fine shows there.

Great job on Summertime Doug! I watched it a couple hours ago from FB and emailed the link to a bunch of friends. Can't wait.

Blue Rock Shoot is also closing (again). As one club owner I talked to this week said, "everyone's closing". But I have a couple of leads that look promising.

By the way, here's an excerpt from Thursday's webcast. We'll probably play this at the show Sunday, adding Teja to the mix:

As usual, I'm late to the conversation- AGAIN!  Mark K., thanks for hosting a great Fingig, and always nice to see Kate and Devin.  Man, that little guy has grown so much since I saw him last!!

Sorry to hear about MC.  Maybe Blue Rock Shoot, again?  See y'all Sunday!
