Fest Report

C'mon, baby, let's go downtown...

Thanks to all who attended last night's party at my place in Toronto:

  1. Mary Maguire
  2. Mark Klus (Powderfinger)...
  3. ...and his wife
  4. Zain Patel
  5. Dave Fielder
  6. Jim...
  7. ... and his sister...
  8. ... and friend.
  9. Tipper
  10. Kato Kitamura
  11. Dave...
  12. ... and his...
  13. ... 2 friends.
  14. And me.
A special thanks to Andy Strote who couldn't make it, but handed us the Shroud of Tourin' (via Mary).

The highlight of the evening was the surprise birthday cake and card presented to Mark Powderfinger Klus who fortunately was visiting this neck of the woods from Philadelphia. (Yes, we have pictures coming...)

Another highlight was the fine playing of Kato (acoustic), Dave Fielder (acoustic) and Tipper (bongos) which lasted for a few hours past midnight. (Was there a song you did NOT play?)

A special thanks to the guests who helped clean up at night's end. I was really surprised. Thanks.

So, great tunes, videos, live music, singalong, a surprise birthday and the shroud. I'd say it was a good party.

Look forward to doing it again soon. Maybe those who couldn't make it this time can attend the next one.

Long may you run...
