Wow! What a day Sunday was! One day a few months back I was listening to my trial subscription to SiriusXM and heard a wonderful song. I wrote it down, determined to learn it and cover it in my shows. The song was “I don’t wanna fall in love” by Ken Yates. Since then I found his listing on Reverb Nation, and became a fan. Soon after that, he fanned me back and joined my mailing list. Then I saw that he was on an “East Coast Tour” , and that he would be in NY on 8/5. I asked my son Derek and my daughter Sara if they wanted to go, and we went on Sunday. It was in a small venue in the East Village called Rockland Music Hall. We hopped the train from Babylon, at 5:00 and we were there by 6:30. Stage #1 was an intimate little room, and when we got there
|7:00pm||Rock Ridge Presents: Jared Finck, Ken Yates, Sarah Miles|
|9:00pm||The Sweater Set|
Deepa Chari just started and was singing jazz standards and originals with her band. Piano, Violin, Bass and Drums – it was wonderful. Next up was Sarah Miles.
We really liked her, and we realized that this was gonna be a good night. Of course drinks on an empty stomach made us a little dizzzzzzzy.
Then I saw Ken Yates, and talked with him a while. My daughter Sara took our picture. Last up was Jared Finck. we had a great time!
