Great show Jan 8

The Provisor Crook Duo did a great job improvising and presenting their compositions to a very full house that night and then our trio came on consisiting of Rob Bethel, Matt Samolis and myself. We had a great time and I cant wait to hear the audio clip. Thanks Steve and Keith for your artistry and getting such a warm and receptive audience there. Thanks Rob and Matt for making that night a truly amazing and memorable new music experience! I think our trio will do it again at the church of the Advent in February....
