    Default 1st a Cappella performance!

    Last evening we had our monthly open mic in the Ohana, a beautiful Hawaiian style cafe.
    Our theme was the 50th anniversary of the Woodstock Rock Festival.
    We were so jammed we were limited to 2 songs!
    So I loved Janis Joplin, but can't sing in her style, so I got up solo and did the only Janis song I Know, Mercedes Benz. A very good bassist backed me up and I led the audience in the song, I had it stored in my memory. Most of them sang it, except for the really younger customers.
    I'm not a great singer, but I belted it out in F as best I could, and got several compliments.
    I didn't do a 2nd song, so we'd all have plenty of time. We did.

    Music washes from the soul, the dust of everyday living.

    You gotta be booze sodden to do a real Janis sounding tribute........

    She was a 'once in a lifetime' performer.......loved the way she used to belt out them songs.
    Trying to do justice to various musical instruments.

    Awesome job, Nickie! And it was a good decision to keep it to the one song-- leave them hungry for more!
