[Last Week's ♪ ♫] From: 9/20/13 Off the Facebook Wall ~ Jody Jaress"After tonight's terrific (Sho-) w/ Yvette Ayres & Sandra Piller (Dolores Petersen Presents: D'z "Companion Event" @ HSB&G/Gower Gulch) there was the (unusual) usual (D'z Open Mic / Jam:)... but WOW did we have some super amazing NEW people show up to share their talents!!
Rusty Johnson on sax & trumpet was the new love of the night I think. Then there was a singer/songwriter/acoustic guitarist from S. Carolina, known only as Jamison, another super talented singer/guitarist called Bulat... & ending out the night were these "students" that could sing rings around most of us: Chikage, Yuko, Yuki, Tomoyo, Tomomi....OMG!!
It was a good night for everyone talent & audience alike. And I think we had a full house for most of the evening.... how cool was THAT!?
Dolores Petersen Presents, was missing one important element though.... Dolores herself due to her feeling much too sick & exhausted to be there encouraging all the talent up to the mic. She wanted to be certain to send everyone her love & support through me filling in as tonights (Guest☆Co-Host) for her.... but we dearly missed her beautiful self & her songs. Feel better soon dear Dolores!..... xoxo" - (edited) by ampersand, @ lg.
