With Red Gretchen, Frank Wood & His NYC All-Stars Band, Keyke The Girl and An Acoustic Mind. We all headed into this gig with post election depression, all dressed in black like we were going to a funeral. That feeling permeated to whole bar, but everyone was ready to experience the healing power of music. Walter was home with family so Chuckie “Raven” Hancock filled in with his sax. Red Gretchen started the evening with a beautiful ,delicate set of rarely played slow tunes setting the tone for the night. I must say Cray Mary’s playing was inspiring, slowing songs down ever so slightly till they created a perfect groove. Chuckie’s playing inspired the band as well.
