Pandemic 2020. All m gigs ended in March..but I was determined to find some REAL LIVE gigs and do them safely. After 54 yrs of playing to audiences i was STARVING. Finally did a gigat Hooley's RSD on Sept 18th! (solo) and then got this date as well on Oct 30, 2020 at Hooley's Grossmont, Asked my friend Jinnah Williams to join me.. WE had so much fun! We both needed that so much. Who Knows if i find more gigs? but those two gigs will have to be my drink of water and last me for ahwile. Photo by Dennis Andersen
