Sactown Poetry Bands - Bravo!
Thanks to Frank Graham and all the musicians and poets who performed last night at the first ever Sactown Poetry Band fest. From Jennifer and Mike Pickering at the opening, to Anna Marie and Fo Shang at the close, this was one evening of great music, poetry, and fun. Who thought we'd be sitting under a midnight moon, in mid-July in the R25 parking lot, grooving to Vincent Kobelt's amazing ensemble. Thanks to all - Robert Grossklaus and Litany, James Israel, Pat Grizzell, Steve Bird and Ken on mandolin, Lawrence Dinkins, Mario Ellis Hill and (do i have this right?) the Dread-i Knights, Jackson Griffith, Anna, Vincent and company, Mike and Jennifer, and a great crowd - all i can say is bravo - and let's do it again!
