    Glad the tour is enjoying such success. I wonder though, how did you guys manage to dance around and pass through New Jersey without playing for us Garden Staters? We would have cleared out and filled up the Count Basie Theater for ya! 🙂

    Safe travels/happy trails

    Thanks Jorma, and co. for a great night of music at the Talkhouse.Its always a special treat to see you play at this cozy little club out east.last night was as good as it gets. Having Ole Ge join in did not hurt any either.The sound as always was great, You all played a real nice set list.Some great moments between Barry and yourself.Real nice renditions of the “new’ material.. “second chances” plays so well in the acoustic format indeed.Full go round was real strong, sort of an Ode to a good friend Frank who just passed suddenly.. the lyrics had that special meaning.lots of pesonal faves..light,parchman farm>lamps, nine pound hammer and on . Eileen and i had a great time, friendly crowd..again a great treat,, stay well,, catch you down the road… thanks again..

    Message to Kenny lee- Jorma will be playing at the Sanctuary on 9/17/11. I believe the Sanctuary is in either Chatham or Mendham, some place near Short Hills.

    I do agree, being from the Red Bank area, we definitely need a visit to the Basie or the Pony.
    Come by soon, Jorma!!

    Thanks for the picture of Port Jefferson, I live in Stony Brook – about 5 minutes away and take that ferry all the time. I went up to Bethel Woods(Woodstock) on the 19th to see the Doobie Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd instead. But after seeing the setlist @ the talkhouse I don’t know if I made the right decision. But it was the first time I ever heard Freebird live and it was amazing. I don’t remember you ever playing there but if you ever get a chance. Jorma, you were there at THE WOODSTOCK – but they built a beautiful amphitheatre.

  1. No trackbacks yet.
